The mail boat also transports residents, friends, and guests to properties in secluded bays throughout the area.

There is usually an opportunity to get off the boat for a walk through an ancient native forest (weather permitting) and also a stop at a small and remote cafe/restaurant where you can purchase lunch, a drink or even an icecream, in total peace and tranquility.
The crew will offer commentary on life in the Marlborough Sounds past and present, and also on the wildlife which can include, Australasian Gannets, Sheerwaters, NZ Fur Seals,3 types of Dolphins, the very rare NZ King Shag and Blue penguins.
This is relaxing cruise seeing a part of the country most people never get to see.
