RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
Make the most of the postie's day off and explore the remote Pelorus/Te Hoiere and Kenepuru Sounds on board the Pelorus Express! Admire the crystal blue waters and bush-clad hills that surround, learn about the area from the friendly crew and look out for a host of marine wildlife.
Operating for more than a century, the Pelorus Mail Boat cruises through the largest, quietest and most remote part of the Marlborough Sounds delivering mail; Pelorus Sound/Te Hoiere and Kenepuru Sound. But on Sundays the postie takes a day off, giving you the perfect opportunity to spend more time experiencing the amazing natural environment and fascinating features of these remote regions. Sit back and let the captain take you to some of the most stunning corners of this vast area, flush with tranquil coves and bush-clad hillsides. You'll have the option to take a short bush walk to truly immerse yourself in the magic. Hear entertaining commentary about the area, learn about the Greenshell Mussel farm as you pass it by and watch out for marine wildlife including dolphins, seals and penguins.
Available Sundays between November and April only.

This experience takes place in the remote reaches of the Marlborough Sounds.
