  • Experience a remote part of New Zealand on a postie boat
  • Meet the locals and their four-legged friends as they collect their mail
  • Fall in love with the surrounding landscape as you cruise

Become a sea postie for the day as you cruise the remote reaches of Marlborough Sounds aboard the Pelorus Sound. Deliver mail to the residents in this tucked-away region, meet their four-legged friends that await your arrival and admire the crystal blue waters and bush-clad hills that surround.

What's Included?

  • Full day cruise aboard the Pelorus Express
  • Complimentary tea, coffee and water on board
  • Commentary on the surrounding wildlife and general area
  • Greenshell Mussel Farm tour (weather permitting)

A sea postie may be one of the best jobs around, and you'll discover why on this full day tour! Operating for more than a century, the Pelorus Mail Boat cruises through the largest, quietest and most remote part of the Marlborough Sounds; Pelorus Sound/Te Hoiere and Kenepuru Sound. You'll meet some of the characters in this faraway corner of the world as you deliver their mail on jetties, unspoilt beaches and on the boat itself, sometimes accompanied by their adorable four-legged friends. Between deliveries and pick ups, it will be hard to tear your eyes away from the stunning scenery that surrounds, flush with tranquil coves and bush-clad hillsides, as your friendly guide provides informative commentary. If the weather permits, you'll take a tour of a Greenshell Mussel farm. It's the perfect slice of daily life in this beautiful region.
