Picton is a great place for a holiday -- for water and land lovers alike. Enjoy a variety of accommodation in Picton or stay in a guest house hidden in a secluded Marlborough Sounds cove.
On The Water
An alluring blue-green, the sheltered waters of the Marlborough Sounds beckon you. Try sailing, cruising, fishing or kayaking. You can use your own gear or turn to any of the friendly tour operators for bareboat or skippered charters to visit favourite spots. You'll experience the magic of islands, bird sanctuaries and fish reserves, visit salmon farms . . . while watching out for dolphins, seals and the sometime whale.
The excitement of wreck diving, wind surfing and water skiing can be yours -- or the lasting memories of bush walks by the sea.
On The Land
Explore friendly Picton and environs by car, bicycle, tandem or motor scooter. Play golf or mini golf, join a wine, gourmet or craft trail, or even go horse riding.
Travel by boat to the Queen Charlotte Track or enjoy one of the many short walks in and around Picton.
Farms experiences within minutes of Picton tempt you, and the town's your base while you take day trips farther afield . . . Queen Charlotte Drive, historic Port Underwood, the Nelson lakes . . .
Let visitor information centres help you, or local tour operators be your hosts through countryside rich in history and interest.
In The Air
To look down on the Sounds from the air is one of the great experiences ever. So much beauty, so close and yours for the asking. And it's only minutes in the air to reach anywhere in the unforgettable Sounds.
