Marlborough Sounds
Cruise and Walk - New Zealand's Queen Charlotte Discovery
• Walk to the summit of Motuara Island – a Bird Sanctuary Island where Robins, Tuis, Kiwis, Kakariki and Bellbirds live.
• Visit Ship Cove where the explorer Captain James Cook made his home. Walk 6 hours from Ship Cove to Furneaux Lodge (approx. 17km)
• Walk 4 hours from Furneaux Lodge to Punga Cove, marvel at the scenery and wildlife as you walk along the second section of the track (approx. 12.7km)
• Walk 8 hours from Camp Bay to Torea Bay, a challenging section of the track as you walk along ridge tops with magnificent views of Queen Charlotte and the Kenepuru Sounds (approx. 23.7km)
• Walk 4 hours from Torea Bay to Mistletoe Bay, climbing to 400m to be rewarded with breathtaking views (approx. 5.6km). Then continue onto the last section of the track another 4 hours to Anakiwa, following an old bridle path that takes you through beautiful regeneration and mature native forest with Fantails, Waxeyes, Tomtits, Finches and Weka (approx. 13km)
• You will meet you at the end of each walking section – No back tracking!
• Hot showers to freshen and invigorate you at the end of your enjoyable days walk, your meals all prepared for you, if you are ashore at lunchtime a packaged lunch will be sent with you.
• You have the same cabin each night so there is no worrying about your luggage which means no heavy packs to carry as your luggage remains on-board.
• We find safe anchorage every night in a calm and picturesque bay, so you can enjoy a peaceful night’s rest.
• All walks are optional, you may wish to stay on board and relax, and there may be a shorter walk option that would suit you better – just ask! Please understand you are responsible for your own safety and actions during these unguided walks.
