The cruise departs at 9:00am on board the catamaran MV Tiri Cat. Cruise from Picton up through the Queen Charlotte Sound enjoying complimentary tea & coffee to historical Ship Cove. Along the way your skipper will provide a commentary on the surrounds, history and the wildlife be it bird, fish or mammal! One of the highlights of the morning is a 30 minute stopover at Ship Cove, named by Captain James Cook when his ship The Endeavour anchored there to replenish supplies of food, water and wood in 1770. Take the opportunity to dabble in the creek where Captain Cook made home brew for his crew and share the beach with the resident wildlife. On re-joining your vessel cruise via Endeavour Inlet back to Picton returning around 12.30 where you will be met by your wine tour guide who will take for a single course lunch, with a glass of wine of your choice at one of Marlborough’s boutique wineries.
