Lochmara Taste of Paradise
We welcome all passengers from the Cruise Ships to Lochmara.
Meet your guide in Picton and embark on a one hour cruise across the Marlborough Sounds and discover Lochmara hidden in a bay where you would least expect it. In this "stay on the boat whirlwind trip" you will enjoy sheltered bays and stunning scenery with abundant native sea life. On the way we may encounter dolphins, NZ fur seals plus a variety of native seabirds including Fluttering Shearwaters, Gannets, Shags and even our Little Blue Penguins.
Your guide will privide a full commentary.
This short but wonderful one hour cruise will give you a taste of the Marlborough Sounds whilst allowing you time to do other things with your day whilst in the port of Picton.
Start and End times will be adjusted to suit ships ETA or ETD in Port, therefore not all times may be available.
