Welcome to Picton a charming little seaport town, gateway to the Marlborough Sounds and the rest of the South Island. Picton has a rich realm of Maori and European history created by its natural environment. Best enjoyed on a walking tour, this half-day adventure begins when you board a motorcoach for a short ride to Picton Township. Meet your knowledgeable guide and embark on a 1.5-hour, two-mile pedestrian tour. Stroll along the waterfront and shoreline and learn about the history, flora and fauna of the area. Picton was once called Waitohi, and, in the early European settlement years, whaling and fishing were its main industries. Today, it is a thriving tourism town with a lively marina. Enjoy pretty views of the fishing vessels, pleasure craft and water taxis in the harbor, then pass over the Coat-hanger Bridge and follow a steep incline to a panoramic lookout point. Make your way back along the loop track and finish with refreshments on the waterfront. Return to the ship or enjoy the city independently.

Special Notes:
