Sounds, Salmon & Songbirds
Cruise – 7 & 14 October 2018
Marlborough Tour Company with New Zealand King Salmon and Kaipupu Wildlife Sanctuary offer this fantastic family cruise in the Sounds with the popular Sounds, Salmon & Songbirds Cruise.
Onboard our well-appointed MV Odyssea launch, head out from Picton to New Zealand King Salmon’s Ruakaka salmon farm at the junction of Queen Charlotte Sound and the Tory Channel. Hear about what makes King salmon so special, how they are farmed, what they eat and their life cycle, and help feed the fish.
From there cruise to the Kaipupu Wildlife Sanctuary. Hear about the great work this organisation does to protect a whole range of native wildlife and birds, and take a guided walk around the picturesque reserve with a Kaipupu ranger.
As you head back to Picton, sample delicious local Regal salmon from New Zealand King Salmon’s Marlborough salmon farms, accompanied by a Mud House Wine tasting. Take in the beauty of the Sounds and keep an eye out for dolphins, penguins and seals.
