We take a private cruise out on the Sound to visit Ship Cove in this 251st anniversary year of Cook’s first landfall. Hear the stories of the Polynesian voyagers’ settlement at Wairau Boulder Bank and discover the history of the eastern coastline at Kaikoura and Akaroa.
“It takes an hour to cruise down stunning Queen Charlotte Sound to the jetty at Ship Cove and it’s always a treat. It’s the perfect way to start our coastline odyssey in the wake of the first visitors and settlers. Each night we stay close to the sea and each day we connect with our early history.”
