Onshore Cruise Private Delights Tour from Picton

Sensational wines of the Marlborough region and spectacular scenery is the draw card for everyone. Refreshments as required, a snack or a taste of local produce and gourmet treats. Maybe a local pizza oven for delicious slices.
Your itinerary could include exciting options such as a visit to an award
winning garden, a visit to a renowned local artist’s personal gallery,
and the opportunity to see a family farm park and pat the friendly sheep, the goat and oh! such a big ugly but beautiful at the same time Kune Kune pig. Nearby we can visit the breeding aviary of the rare Falcon the Karearea.
You could also choose a visit to the Omaka Air Museum to view Peter
Jackson’s classic air plane displays or a helicopter ride over the Wairau
Valley and Tasman Bays.
A must stop is the Makana Boutique Chocolate Confections – a tasty treat
not to be missed.
Once back in Picton you may like to take in the breath-taking views
overlooking the Port of Picton, Queen Charlotte Sound and your ship.
