Set anchor at Ship Cove, a sheltered bay of Queen Charlotte Sound where Captain James Cook landed in the late 1700s. During this half-day nature cruise in the Marlborough Sounds, enthusiastic marine biologists point out wildlife including New Zealand fur seals and several species of dolphins: Hector's, bottlenose and dusky. Spot rare seabirds and learn about the history between Cook and the Maori people of Aotearoa while you’re treated to refreshments on board.
The tour was great, we got to see all the wildlife that was promised and more! Both Tristan and the Captain were great hosts, would definitely recommend!
This tour was outstanding. Wonderful sights of birds, some history-telling, and close-up dolphin encounter. The only quibble is the oh-so-seriousness of the two person crew. I got the impression that they like animals more than people. Take a lesson from the dolphins, guys, and lighten up.
This was a very worthwhile tour. The boat captain and commentator were enthusiastic and knowledgable and went out of their way to spot and bring our group as close as possible to various wildlife, some of which was quite unique and rare. I also appreciated the link the tour company has with conservation efforts in New Zealand.
Lovely day on the water. Great staff who were very knowledgeable. Stop at the bird sanctuary was disappointing for us because we have some mobility issues and had to wait at least 45 minutes for the group to return. We saw only two types of birds unfortunately. Spotting the dolphins on the way back was a real treat for us. Tour would have been disappointing without that.
