Sounds by Sail is a boutique yacht charter operating in the beautiful Marlborough Sounds at the top of the South Island. We offer skippered and self drive charters. Our vessel is a luxury 32ft Beneteau, easy to sail. Daily 3 hour sails give you a wonderful introduction to the Marlborough Sounds, with many beautiful bays and inlets to explore.

You can become part of the crew or sit back and enjoy the thrill of the sail while passing stunning scenery, native birds, and keep an eye out for dolphins, penguins and seals.

During the sail, you'll be treated to a glass of Marlborough wine with marinated mussel's, dips and bread.
