Interislander Ferry – we are an approximately 10-minute walk from the Interislander ferry terminal, walk out of the terminal and past the rental car offices and I-Site and you will see a red paved pathway that leads right along the waterfront directly to our office. If you are driving, take the first left onto London Quay, then turn onto Wellington Street for the public car park.
Bluebridge Ferry – take the free shuttle bus from the Bluebridge terminal and get off at the Oxley’s Hotel, this is on the Corner of Wellington Street and London Quay and you will see our office right in front of this area. If you are driving take the left at the first roundabout, then straight until Wellington Street where you will turn left towards the waterfront and into the car park.
Train – we are approximately a 10-minute walk from the Train Station, walk straight onto London Quay then down the street past the war memorial until you reach the ramp that leads down onto the waterfront area where our office is located.
It is very unlikely that you will experience seasickness on our boats. The Queen Charlotte sounds are not very wide or deep and they are in enclosed waters, so we don’t generally get that rolling ocean swell that causes guests to suffer with seasickness.
There are no scheduled pick ups from Ship Cove to return you to Anakiwa, you can however charter a private water taxi. We suggest that all walkers park their car in Picton and get boat transport each way.
We can transport your overnight bags direct to most accommodation points and campsites on the track: excluding, DOC Schoolhouse Bay Campsite, DOC Bay of Many Coves Campsite, DOC Blackrock campsite, DOC Davies bag campsite.
Our vessels are safe, regularly maintained and well equipped, and our skippers are highly experienced and qualified, however we will cancel a sailing if we deem the weather to be too extreme to sail. We do still sail in wind and rain, luckily, we are quite sheltered in the Queen Charlotte Sounds and it is extremely rare that we must cancel. Safety and guest comfort is a priority.
