Get close and personal with one of the most beautiful spots in the world. The Queen Charlotte Track or walkway as it is known is one of the top ten and finest coastal walking tracks in New Zealand.

At Beachcomber Cruises we have a number of walk options to make your trip hassle free. Whether it be a one day walk, just a couple of sections of the Queen Charlotte Track or you wish to complete the entire 71 kms.

This breathtaking track starts at Ship Cove and winds its way through virgin native bush over saddles along the coast line and up and along ridge lines offering panoramic views and surreal scenery.

The entire track can be completed in three days or take it as easy as you wish with the flexibility of our service you can take in this truly unique experience.

Beachcomber offers a 364 days of the year service and our luxury vessels are available to transfer you and your luggage each day between your accommodation stopovers, whether it be the more luxurious resorts and lodges, one of the many backpackers or out in the wilderness at DOC camping sites »
