Very helpful when we forgot to take our schedule of travel into the Chinese embassy to obtain our visa. Athena was kind enough to fax the paperwork through straight away enabling us to apply for the visa instead of making another trip into the city which was very much appreciated."

New Zealand’s Marlborough Sounds, together with its islands and peninsulas, cover some 4,000 sq.km., and lie at the South Island's north-easternmost point, between Tasman Bay in the west and Cloudy Bay in the south-east. They comprise an extensive network of sea-drowned valleys that include the Queen Charlotte, Kenepuru and Pelorus Sounds. Bordered by forests and rich in wildlife, trees rise almost vertically from the water’s edge. This magical area of intricate coastline of sheltered inlets and sandy bays offers 1500 kilometres of sheltered beaches and waterways. Twenty-two kilometres to the east is across Cook Strait is Wellington, the capital on the North Island.

Captain Cook visited the sounds in the 1770s and discovered scurvy grass that helped to cure scurvy among his crew. The Sounds are home to the entire breeding population of the rare and vulnerable New Zealand king cormorant. Not surprisingly, sailing, cruising, kayaking and diving are popular activities, while fishing in the Sounds is a perfect activity for all ages. Famous for its year-round sunshine, being home to a wide variety of sea-birds and marine mammals, and for providing sanctuaries for endangered species, it is a great place to visit.

The main large port is Picton on the mainland, at the head of Queen Charlotte Sound. The other main sounds are Pelorus Sound and Kenepuru Sound. Take a kayaking trip to watch dolphins frolicking in the sparkling waters, a scenic flight, or a guided walk through the native forests, and thoroughly enjoy the new landscapes and rejuvenating experiences. Interestingly, from 1888 to 1912 a 4-metre dolphin Pelorus Jack escorted ships through the dangerous waters of French Pass (between Wellington and Nelson) by swimming alongside. He became the first individual sea creature protected by law in any country.
