|3 Day Luxury Lodge Adventure
An all inclusive, variety packed luxury adventure staying in the heart of the Marlborough Sounds.
Accommodation is at Lochmara Lodge Arts and Wildlife Recovery Center.
Three Day Itinerary
We start the day by being picked up from your accommodation in Picton followed by a boat cruise out into the
Marlborough Sounds. Along the way we stop at Motuara Island Bird Sanctuary, a predator free protected
island where we spend time viewing rare native birds such as the Saddleback.
We then begin our walk from Ships Cove. This is the site that Captain Cook spent much of his time here
while charting the coastline of New Zealand and today retains many of the natural features that Cook would
have seen such as large, majestic native trees, sub tropical palms and tree ferns.
We then make our way to Endeavour Inlet before taking the NZ Post mail boat to our accommodation for the
next two nights at Lochmara Lodge.
Today we have the option of going fishing. Head out into the sounds for an action packed day. We go into
secret areas where the fish such as Blue Cod and Gurnard literally jump onto your line. The local skipper is
an expert fisherman of the Marlborough Sounds and will take you to where the fish are biting.
After a leisurely breakfast we go via water taxi back to Picton where you will embark on an indepth wine tour of
the Marlborough region. For the true wine connoisseur, meet the wine makers and enjoy a sumptuous
gourmet lunch matched with local wines at Allen Scott winery. Visit Johanneshof Cellars, Wither Hills, Cloudy
Bay and the boutique Makana Chocolate Factory, specialising in hand crafted chocolate.
