Lovely experience - you get an amazing selection of clams, (huge) green shell mussels and salmon, accompanied with a lovely glass of Marlborough wine. The catamaran is large and comfortable, and the staff (Nicole, I think her name was!) lovely and genuinely passionate about you having a good time. The tour of the Sounds and the mussel and salmon farm are really interesting an informative, and you even have the opportunity to get up close and personal feeding some blue cod. It's just a lovely, relaxing few hours with great views and food.

We did this tour on a whim as we had nothing planned that afternoon. This became the highlight of our trip. Blair and Ellie were amazing. Blair is very knowledgeable when explaining the intricacies of the mussel and salmon farm that we visited. They both made us feel relaxed and welcomed. Ellie cooked some mussels and Cloudy Bay clams for us and paired them with a nice Pinot Gris from the region. She also had some salmon for us. That was fantastic. The leftovers were given to some blue cods in a sheltered bay. Love seeing them. All in all, a very good experience. I will definitely do this again as it is a great way to see the Sounds. Highly recommended.

A very relaxed trip from Picton. Great crew who kept us entertained and so well fed. The seafood was fantastic and a perfect compliment to the visits to mussel and salmon farms along the way. Late highlight feeding the huge blue cod who were waiting for us to appear. Great crew, great food, great value. Highly recommended
