Cruises to Picton

New Zealand


Picton sits at the head of Queen Charlotte Sound and is surrounded by lush, rolling hills. It is the gateway to the South Island of New Zealand, and a launching pad to the many inlets and bays that make up Marlborough Sounds.

Picton is the Marlborough region’s second largest town and is only a 25-minute drive from Blenheim, making it the perfect base to experience both the Queen Charlotte Sound and the Marlborough wine region. The town has a rich historic past as a Maori settlement and fishing village and is now a haven for food, nature and art lovers with spectacular views and a relaxed atmosphere.
