This is a lovely way to see the Marlborough sounds and also gain knowledge into the green shell mussel industry. Fresh cooked mussels and some Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc finished the afternoon off perfectly. Skipper Matt was very entertaining and knowledgeable.

Our hosts Andrew and Matt have just given us a beautiful day out. Weather was stunning, mussels cooked beautifully and Framington sauvignon blanc chilled perfectly. We learnt a lot about mussel farming and the local region. I recommend lunch at Slip Inn beforehand too.

Had a great few hours with the crew and learned a bit about mussell farming. Enjoyed this tour. The local wine is good and the mussells were delicious and obviously the freshest ever.
