This has to be the best job in the world...deliver the mail by boat! This is a best buy at full price but we were lucky enough to have a 50% off voucher. At $128NZD per person you get to cruise the Marlbourgh Sounds delivering the mail with Jim and Bindi. You board the boat a bit before 9:30 and arrived back in port by 4:30. The boat has an indoor heater, they provide seats, tea, coffee and cookies, and a two toilets...you should bring your own lunch and a sense of adventure. We brought along a wool blanket and so enjoyed sitting out on the front of the boat (next time I will bring a small cushion as well. We saw blue penguins, (sometime you will see dolphins we did't have luck with that today) but really fun is actually meeting all the hardy folks who live year round in the sound (the only way you get mail delivery is if you are a full time resident). We stopped at te Rawa resort today that was under new ownership as of 3 days ago the new owner Anne was so welcoming I can't wait to go back and stay) We were able to purchase a glass of wine and sit on the stunning deck for a bit. Highly recommend this trip very kid friendly.
