If you have limited time in the area but are keen to experience the brilliance that the Marlborough Sounds has to offer, then these are the trips for you. Let our professional and qualified guides not only tell you, but show you what makes the Sounds such a special place.
Our half-day trip is based in the Grove Arm of the Queen Charlotte Sound where you can expect to see a variety of sea and forest birdlife and possible sightings of rays, seals, little blue penguins, dolphins and if you are super lucky – Orca!
The half-day starts at 8.30am or 12.30pm and lasts 4 hours.
The full day trip provides the opportunity to explore more of the Sounds’ secluded beaches and paddle beneath pristine native bush. Your guide will find one of the many beautiful beaches to stop for a delicious homemade picnic lunch. Returning to Anakiwa we will always do our best to take you a different way home so you never have to paddle the same coast twice.
These trips are also available in the Keneperu Sound from our Portage Base.
