Picton Seaport Walk


Picton is a charming seaport town, gateway to the Marlborough Sounds and the rest of the South Island, and has a rich realm of Maori and European history created by its natural environment. Join a local guide for a 1½-hour, 3.2 km walking tour. Walk along the waterfront and shoreline and learn about the history, flora and fauna of the area. Picton was once called Waitohi and, in the early European settlement years, whaling and fishing were its main industries. Today, it is a thriving tourism town. At the marina, see the fishing vessels, pleasure-craft and water taxis, then, pass over the ‘coathanger’ bridge and up to a lookout (about a 10-minute steady incline). Make your way back along the loop track to the waterfront. Special Notes: Please wear comfortable flat-soled shoes, clothing suited to the weather conditions, a hat and jacket, plenty of biodegradable sunscreen and bring bottled water. Minimum age: 10 years. A donation to ‘A World without Whales’ is included in the tour price.
