One of the last genuine mail boats left anywhere in the world, the Pelorus Mail Boat is an iconic and fascinating look in to yesteryear (the good old days).
Our mail boat departs from the friendly little township/village of Havelock roughly half way between Picton and Nelson, or a third of the way between Blenheim and Nelson.
We deliver mail, parcels and passengers out into the beautiful Pelorus Sound three days a week. While each day has us navigating different inlets and jetties, they all showcase the stunning scenery and majestic wildlife of the Marlborough Sounds.
Each of the three mail runs include commentary on the history of the Sounds, its residents and a full Greenshell Mussel Tour (weather permitting).
Complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits are available all day.
