Welcome to your day out in the beautiful Queen Charlotte Sound and Marlborough's stunning wineries.  

Please report at 8.50am to the Beachcomber Cruises office (on the Picton Waterfront); return to Picton at 12:30pm.  Wander over to the Sounds Connection office (also on the Picton Waterfront) for a 1:00pm departure for your Half Day Wine Tour; return at 5/5.30pm. Available for the summer months, November-April.

Sit back and enjoy your skipper’s commentary on the natural environment and local history on your way through the stunning Queen Charlotte Sound to Meretoto/Ship Cove. Upon arrival, you will have time to appreciate this historic site which marks the coming together of two cultures following Captain Cook's first visit 250 years ago. Swim in the crystal clear sea, dabble in the creek where Cook made home brew for his crew, share the beach with wildlife or take a short walk to the waterfall through lush native forest. Enjoy a picnic lunch in this beautiful setting before returning to Picton to join your afternoon wine tour. You will be collected by your local and knowledgeable guide who will ensure a mix of information and fun while you get to taste, learn about and enjoy Marlborough’s amazing wines! You will visit approximately four handpicked wineries before returning to your accommodation or suitable drop point.
