$128 per person is overprices. Very friendly skipper who told us a lot of interesting stories.

A wonderful way to explore the Sound and discover all about the remote communities dotted along its scenic coast. Our hosts, owner/skipper, Jim and his co-skipper Penny were truly professional as diligent 'Posties', crew and guides. Thanks!

Where else in the World would you have dogs, pigs, sheep, hens & people waiting at the end of a jetty waiting for their post???

A 'must do' when we visit again.

Excellent trip. Educational and personal. Boat was very crowded with 29 people.

Did the Friday cruise on the mail boat to the outer edges of the sound with the ginger Jock Jim and his faithful sidekick Penny who picked us up from Picton. The trip was in good weather and there was commentary as we were shown the sights as they did their mail run to the locals. We got to see a pod of dolphins swimming with the boat and feed the pigs that are tame on the jetty as he delivered mail to one of the properties.
Was a full day and excellent value for money at $128 with free pickup and drop off in Picton. Free tea and coffee were provided.

Highly recommended as a good day out.
