Because our cruises are flexible and don't run to a timetable or set a route, you can work out what you would like to do and see.

We provide personalised cruises of the Kenepuru Sound, transfers for the Queen Charlotte and Putanui Point tracks. You can combine a cruise or track option, or go to play golf at the Nopera Bay Golf Course, or dine at Portage or Raetihi Lodge.

We are available 7 days a week, but Bookings are essential preferably by the day before. Yes, we even work Christmas Day at no extra charge!

We are here to help you discover the Kenepuru Sound. Come for a visit and explore this unique and diverse area we call home. Contact us and make your bookings.

Nopera Bay Golf Club

Situation on a working farm in the middle of the Marlborough Sounds, this 9 Hole course has been re-established to present plenty of “risk and reward” opportunities to the golfer and casual golfer alike. Centered around the Club House the course is very accessible and enjoyable for 9 or 18 Holes off the Blue Tees (longer course) or Red Tees (shorter course).

You can be excused if you forget your golf when you tee off from “Nopera Heights” and admire the view - it’s stunning.

Club Days are Saturday tee off at 10 a.m. Club Hire can be arranged and everyone welcome. Green Fees are $15, Club Hire $15.
