One Day Guided Walk & Boat Cruise

8.00 am Leave Picton on board cruise boat
5pm Arrive back into Picton
After picking you up from your accommodation in Picton we begin the day on board our cruise boat. We make our way up Queen
Charlotte Sound en route to the start of the Queen Charlotte Track at Ships Cove. We stop for 1.5 hrs on Motuara Island, a
predator free, protected island and home to some of New Zealand's rarest birds such as the Saddleback.
This is also the place where in 1770 Captain James Cook claimed sovereignty over the South Island in the name of King George
After a short hop over to Ships Cove to take in the cultural and historical significance of the area we then travel around to
Resolution Bay to feed the large Blue Cod that live in these waters. We then continue to Furneaux Lodge where we begin our 4
hour walk to Punga Cove Resort returning back to Picton on the afternoon mail boat. The views along the way are breathtaking
and the forest drips with large native palms and tall, majestic tree ferns.
A delicious packed lunch is included.
