Cruising on board our Kenepuru Water Taxi – there is no better way to see the Marlborough Sounds!



Take a personalised cruise with Adrian and explore the Kenepuru & Pelorus Sounds. Visit the mussel farm in the Kenepuru and learn about how the Greenshell™ are grown and harvested.

See the wreck of the N.Z.T.S. “Amokura” - once a proud sailing ship built in 1889 and ended her life in 1953, on the beach where she now lies. Adrian can tell you about the interesting history of this historic little ship.

Cruise past the old guest houses, the airfield, golf course, and the Skiddaw Reserve. This reserve is one of very few stands of native bush that has never been milled and goes to the waters edge.

Bring along your cameras to photograph the colony of Pied Cormorants (Shags). Or just sit and watch them feeding their young and going about their daily lives in their nests, perched in an old birch tree. Sometimes you will also see Gannets and other sea-birds.

Cruise times are normally 1 hour, 1 ½ hours, or 2 hours. But the choice is yours! If there is anything else you are interested in, just ask us, and we can arrange a cruise to suit your individual
