The Marlborough sounds are beautiful and an amazing place to visit. Beautiful scenery and fantastic to see dolphins swimming alongside the boat. We will be back again soon.

Marlborough Sound is stunning and well worth a visit. We went on a cruise around the sound and enjoyed visiting remote inlets and seeing the coastline. Even on a grey, windy day it is worth a visit.

So much to explore. The veiws are exceptional. Walking tracks are well maintained. Kayaking on the sounds is a great experience. A couple of days was not enough time
