Cruise Marlborough’s Pelorus Sound on the Mail Boat as it makes its daily deliveries to secluded bays, hidden coves and isolated islands.
The Mail Boat has been operating in Pelorus Sound / Te Hoiere since 1918, taking essential supplies to the residents who live here.
Aboard the leisurely cruise you can spot pods of dolphins, seals basking on beaches and the bobbing buoys of mussel farms while getting a glimpse of authentic Sounds life.
With no road access to most of the properties in Pelorus Sound, the Mail Boat provides a lifeline to residents dotted around the 379 kilometres of shoreline.
Departing daily from the marina at Havelock, the Pelorus Mail Boat is a unique and authentically Kiwi excursion.
