Cruises from Picton
The picturesque seaside town of Picton near the NE corner of New Zealand's South Island is the South Island base for the ferry service that links the main islands of New Zealand. It’s also the gateway to the marine, forest and island attractions of the Marlborough Sounds. It offers a relaxed setting with beautiful beaches, easy bush walks and an outstanding climate. The town itself has an attractive seafront dotted with cafés, restaurants and various galleries.
There’s also a floating maritime museum and an aquarium. The Queen Charlotte Track is a major local attraction that visitors can conquer either on foot from 3 hours to a full day, or on a mountain bike.
