The guided day trip was well run with good food and good quality equipment. We then rented a kayak for two days. The safety briefing was good and we were really well looked after with a hot shower and coffee when we returned cold and wet. Highly recommended!

4 days hiking, 1 day kayaking. the trip was guided, group of 9. Extremely well organized. You carry a day pack and they get a bag for you from stop to stop. Great hiking and views. The lodges and food were top notch. Our guide (Harry) is a Kiwi classic.

Drove over from our base in Nelson (very early) hoping to join the guided sea kayaking tour around Queen Charlotte Sound. The day trip was just right - moderate level of fitness required - enough to keep us busy and entertained for the day but plenty of time so we could see the town and grab a bite in the... More

I booked a solo kayaking day with the company and I had a great guide, named Harry. We paddled the whole day and always at my pace. We saw jellyfish and visited a bird breeding ground too! The guide have great information about the area and New Zealand. The sound was not as beautiful as Abel Tasman but much more... More

I originally planned to kayak but I didn't plan on leaving my shoes! Upon arriving back to my ship I realized I left my tennis shoes in their cubby at the location of Marlbough Sounds Adventure Company. I immediately emailed the company requesting they hold my shoes for a month before I return! That night I received a phone call... More

We were surprised at how much we loved this hike! The walk was delightful and the guides so knowledgeable they really added to the experience. The lodges were clean and comfortable. The food was wonderful. We very much enjoyed our fellow hikers. It was so nice to have our luggage transported and to have all fees arranged. Our kayaking guide... More

We're just back from our four day freedom walk and have nothing but praise for the Marlborough Sounds Adventure Company, and all of their service partners. Every aspect of our time in the Sounds was meticulously planned and perfectly executed, despite our large group's complex needs. The track itself is beautiful, the accommodation superb, the water taxis provided a great... More

We were staying in the Sounds with extended family and rented 2 double kayaks for 5 days. The company dropped off the kayaks to our accommodation. It was great to have the kayaks for a few days as we could go out when weather conditions suited. Fantastic for all ages, our kids (aged from 10 and up) paddled around the... More

Accommodating, knowledgeable and pleasing staff. A well organised half day outing with safety well to the fore. More strenuous than anticipated as some 10km covered in a few hours. Certainly a lovely location. Book early if doing when a cruise ship is in, or if travelling on a cruise ship.
