Cruise from Picton through the clear and calm waters of the Marlborough Sounds on on a scenic journey to Motuara Island Bird Sanctuary. Our comfortable vessels and expert team take you on a conservation-focused, wildlife adventure for your soul. On the way we'll be spotting wildlife: Penguins, Seals, Birds and Dusky, Bottle-nose, Common, Orca and Hector’s Dolphins are all in this unique area.

Motuara Island is 100% predator-free and is home to some rare species such as the yellow-crowned Parakeet and Saddleback. If it’s a clear day, you will also be able to spot the North Island in the distance. The view from the lookout is absolutely spectacular.

Best of all, we offer a 100% 'no seasickness guarantee' - or your money back.
