Marlborough Tour Company with New Zealand King Salmon and Kaipupu Point Sounds Wildlife Sanctuary offer this fantastic family day out in the Sounds with the popular Sounds, Salmon & Songbirds Cruise.

Onboard our well-appointed MV Odyssea launch, head out from Picton to the Kaipupu Point Sounds Wildlife Sanctuary. Hear about the great work this organisation does to protect a whole range of native wildlife and birds, and take a guided walk around the picturesque reserve.

From there cruise to New Zealand King Salmon’s Ruakaka salmon farm at the junction of Queen Charlotte Sound and the Tory Channel. Hear about what makes king salmon so special, how they are farmed, what they eat and their life cycle. Sample delicious local Regal salmon from New Zealand King Salmon’s Marlborough salmon farms, accompanied by a Mud House Wine tasting.

Take in the beauty of the Sounds as you head back to Picton, and keep an eye out for dolphins, penquins and seals. There’s something for everyone, with lots of spot prizes to be won along the way.

Departure: 1:30pm Picton Marina - Town Wharf 5 (check in 1:15pm).
