Description

Check in at Pier B, Havelock Marina at 9.30am for the Mail Run departing at 10am. You will meander through the largest quietest and remotest part of the Marlborough Sounds, a beautiful inland waterway surrounded by hills and native forest and bush.

The mail run is a genuine working mail delivery cruise and one of the last remaining anywhere in the world. You will be delivering mail, groceries, freight and essential supplies to an area of New Zealand that does not have roads, they do not have mains electricity, there are no shops and most areas do not have cell phone reception. The mail boat also transports residents, friends, and guests to properties in secluded bays throughout the area.

There is usually an opportunity to get off the boat for a walk through an ancient native forest (weather permitting) and also a stop at a small and remote cafe/restaurant where you can purchase lunch, a drink or even an icecream, in total peace and tranquility.
The crew will offer commentary on life in the Marlborough Sounds past and present, and also on the wildlife which can include, Australasian Gannets, Sheerwaters, NZ Fur Seals,3 types of Dolphins, the very rare NZ King Shag and Blue penguins.
This is relaxing cruise seeing a part of the country most people never get to see.

The cruise returns to Havelock Marina approximately 3.30pm but can vary significantly depending on tides and number of deliveries.
