Sights of Picton scenic bus tour - a1 Shuttles


Picton is a picturesque harbour town nestled in the heart of the Marlborough Sounds, guarded by a range of hills that open out onto vast waterways, channels and bays, let Bucket List Tours NZ show you its beautiful panoramic views

This tour is designed to give you a glimpse into the sheer beauty of this district and why those who live here call it "paradise".

 Your tour begins at Victoria Park where you will look down on the ferry terminals and if you are on a cruise, your ship. Victoria Park is on the top of a peninsula of land called 'The Snout' and you will travel along the top of it for more views of Queen Charlotte Sounds.

We then drive through the suburb of Waikawa to Waikawa Bay and Port Underwood Road, passing pretty bays and fabulous homes perched on the hillsides and at the water's edge.

You will stop at Karaka Point for another amazing view, this is an historic, long abandoned Maori Pa site. Ask your guide about the story of the carving of Kupe and Te Wheke Nui (giant octopus) that stands there.

You return to Picton for the last lookout over the ferry terminal from the west side of the harbour, this gives you views looking out the Sounds to where you have just driven and also back into the Picton Marina and town.

Queen Charlotte Track/Ship Cove to Furneaux Lodge- Beachcomer Cruises


  •  Distance: 15 kms
  •  Approx walk/ride time: 5 hours
  •  Return trip pick up time: 4-4.30pm

Our adventure will begin as you cruise north from Picton on one of our fleet through the drowned river valleys of the Queen Charlotte Sound and past idyllic bays. As we head towards Ship Cove your skipper will talk about the history, geology, flora and fauna of the area and – if there is time- will get closer to any passing wildlife, including dolphins who like to play in the wake of the boat.

In the 1770s, sheltered Ship Cove provided safe anchorage, food, water and timber for explorer Captain James Cook and his ship crews on five separate occasions and saw some of the earliest sustained contact between Mäori and Europeans.

There is plenty of historical information at Ship Cove before you climb away from the beach through native forest regenerating beneath a high canopy of trees. The forest includes manuka, kanuka, five finger and tree ferns and is home to many native New Zealand bird species: tui, fantails, silvereyes and tomtits. If you stop for a break, a curious weka may come to check you out.

When you reach Tawa Saddle, stunning views of the Queen Charlotte Sound spread out before you. The track then drops into Resolution Bay and follows an old bridle path into Endeavour Inlet.

Furneaux Lodge at the head of the Endeavor Inlet is your destination. Here you can buy drinks and meals and relax before boarding your cruise vessel at approximately 4-4.30pm for your return to Picton. Arriving back at approximately 5.30-6pm.
