Overview

Cruise departure from Picton Marina at 1.30pm daily for an afternoon scenic cruise in the Queen Charlotte Sound. Enjoy the sights and sounds of the area with seemingly endless bays and coves to explore and different scenery around each corner. Visit a Salmon farm and a Oyster farm and learn about marine farming followed by a fabulous tasting of Salmon and Oysters.

We went as part of a group tour. The cruise was spectacular and informative. I don’t eat seafood but my partner said the mussels, cockles and salmon was perfect. The wine was also well matched. Would throughly recommend this cruise.
