What people are saying about Nelson

Very good combination of boat and walking tour. Unlucky we did not have enough wind for sailing, but that isn’t the captain’s fault. He made the best out of it, and gave us possibility to see seals and also a nice boat trip up the River since the sea/tide was very low.
