The stunning Marlborough Sounds is one of New Zealand's most beautiful coastal treasures...

Marlborough, at the north-east corner of New Zealand’s South Island, is a gourmet and scenic paradise, and a must-see for any traveller.

As New Zealand’s largest wine region and with over a fifth of the country’s coastline in the Marlborough Sounds, Marlborough also boasts some of the sunniest weather in New Zealand and is a mountain biking and hiking paradise.

Tarquin cruises operate largely within the Marlborough Sounds, including the Queen Charlotte Sound, the Pelorus Sound and the Kenepuru Sound.

Longer cruises may include D’Urville Island, the Abel Tasman National Park, Nelson and more. With the Marlborough wine region just 25 minutes drive away, it's easy to experience New Zealand's largest wine area and taste a range of varietals.

If you’re arriving by helicopter or require collection at a different location, we may be able to relocate Tarquin to meet you.
