Greenshell Mussel Cruise


Your excursion starts with a coach ride to Havelock Marina where you will board a catamaran and travel through Pelorus and Kenepuru Sounds. Havelock is the Greenshell Mussel capital of the World with more Greenshell mussels processed than any other port in the world. Take in the natural beauty and tranquillity of this fantastic area and enjoy a commentary on the history of Marlborough Sounds and the pioneering people who have settled here over six generations. Visit a Greenshell Mussel farm where your experienced launch captain will explain why this delicacy grows so well in the Marlborough Sounds. While at the mussel farm, the group will taste delicious, freshly steamed mussels matched with a glass of crisp Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. For non-mussel eaters, fresh breads and local olive oils will be served.
