Paterson Inlet Cruise

Paterson Inlet is one of the most beautiful harbours in New Zealand. Native forest extends down to the waterline in many places, while the coastline is a rugged mix of rock and sandy beaches. Its pristine condition is evident in the clarity of the water, where it is possible to see the bottom on the harbour, about 10 meters below. Enjoy a leisurely cruise of beautiful Paterson Inlet as your local guide provides informative commentary of stunning surrounding scenery. Your cruise includes a visit to the historic whaler’s base at Prices Inlet and the hidden coves and unspoilt beaches of Paterson Inlet. While onboard, keep a lookout for fur seals and penguins.
