Awesome

Was a cloudy day, but still a beautiful day out. The skipper was super informative and cracked a few good jokes. Worth every cent, the Marlborough Sounds are stunning! (NB: it's windy, dress warm)

A fun way to see the sound and cruise in the morning. Enjoyed the commentary although we had a tough time hearing while the ship was going faster. But our captain was great!

Very enjoyable cruise

We very much our trip through the Queen Charlotte Sound and spending time at Ship Cove. It was great to be able to sit up the top and then inside when it got a little cold. Would love to go again.
