Katabatic is a locally built, owned, and operated charter boat offering tailored sightseeing, fishing, and diving charters around the Marlborough Sounds.


$1300.00 - $2070.00


Unique, Intimate, Authentic. A cruise on Katabatic should be a Marlborough Sounds bucket list experience.
Katabatic is Grant Orchard’s legacy from his father and steeped in history.
Grant knows Marlborough, he will give you a personalized and unique experience. You will cruise through the labyrinth of the Sounds with as little or as much historical and interesting commentary as you like. Grant can take you to gorgeous places like Double Cove to feed the fish, Ruakaka to view where the Salmon grow, Hitaua Bay to fetch some fresh Mussels off the farm or maybe across the bay to pluck some Pāua from the sea floor! The possibilities are truly endless.
Young or old there is no restrictions. Enquire today!
