Charter La Vendemmia, 45ft Laurie Davidson designed cruising yacht with a blue water experienced skipper and enjoy a unique sailing experience in the beautiful protected waters of the Marlborough Sounds, South Island, New Zealand.
The Marlborough Sounds situated in the northern tip of the South Island includes the Queen Charlotte sound and Pelorous Sound.
Take the Ferry or a 20min Sounds Air Flight from New Zealands capital city, Wellington.
Cruising the Sounds provides a variety of sailing and exploration experiences set in magnificent scenery of rugged hills, beautiful New Zealand bush and, if you wish, a chance to test your sailing skills in the open waters from Cape Jackson to Pelorous Sounds.
You will love the spectacular scenery, the beaches, the swimming and perhaps a chance to swim with the dolphins, snorkeling (masks and flippers provided), diving (by arrangement), fishing for blue cod, the abundant bird life on the water and in the bush and the secluded sheltered evening anchorages.
Marlborough Sounds Charters have the knowledge to plan for your holiday afloat with an itinerary to suit your time, your experience and the weather. We can plan an itinerary for novice first time sailors, with personal lessons in sailing and navigating, or voyages of discovery for the adventurous sailors.
While on board you will be able to sample Jeff Whittakers' wine from Shepherds Croft Winery in Hawkes bay
