Awesome trip to see parts of Queen Charlotte Sound that you don't see on Ferry was great delivering mail to people who live in secluded areas. Phil the skipper gave excellent commentary of history around this area, was a very pleasant person to be touring with as he made us feel very relaxed plus welcome.

The booking was super easy on line. Staff at the office were very welcoming. The boat was comfortable with options for indoor or outdoor viewing. Enjoyed meeting some of the locals and experiencing very briefly what life may be like for them.

The mail run cruise is a great way to have a look at parts of the sounds you would not normally see. The skipper was knowledgeable and informative. I was lucky to have excellent weather that just added to the experience.

It was an interesting, informative adventure and we all enjoyed it very much. As three 80 year olds we appreciated the help we were given in getting on and off the boat.

The scenery was magnificent, the host was very pleasant and knowledgeable but it would’ve been better with some biscuits or cake to go with the cuppa
