The Marlborough Sounds are an extensive network of waterways which were created at the end of the last ice age when the sea levels rose and flooded a series of river valleys. The four Sounds are Pelorus, Kenepuru, Queen Charlotte and Mahau. The Marlborough Sounds contains 20% of New Zealand's coastline, approximately 1500kms of bush lined coast, islands and peninsulas. Many of the small bays and coves within the Sounds have idyllic beaches nestled in them, real pieces of wilderness paradise.Much of the Marlborough Sounds forest is secondary growth, with 52% of the land being D.O.C owned the emphasis is on regeneration of native trees and plants which you will see on all of our tours.
