Cruise the beautiful Marlborough Sounds on the 20m classic motor yacht Faith. Individual day or half day cruises are crafted to meet your interests. Viewing wild life, visiting historic Ship Cove, simply chugging around the bays exploring or parking in a private bay midst the pristine bush sipping a good Marlborough wine - it is all your choice. One seventh of New Zealand coastline is right here in the Sounds and there is much to see.
The good ship Faith was build of teak, oak and mahogany in Scotland in 1935. For four decades she was kept in the UK and used for summers in the Mediterranean. Faith was sailed to NZ in 1980. Her original saloon, cabins, decks and hatches all reflect a gentler age of aesthetic, unhurried craftsmanship and elegance. Faith is magnificent and nearly beautiful enough to be worthy of the Sounds.
Join the historic mail run through Pelorus Sound on the Mail Boat. Take in the majestic scenery and meet the people who live and love the Sounds as they receive their mail and groceries in remote locations. See Gannets, Dolphins, seals and a variety of other marine and bird life as we cruise through the beautiful Marlborough Sounds.

Experience the joy of sailing on board the good ship Steadfast! Built on the lines of a French pilot cutter from 1913, Steadfast offers guests a delightful experience of sailing in comfort and style. Our French Pass lunch cruise features freshly baked rolls from the ship's stove, fresh organic produce, and a complimentary glass of wine.
Departing the French Pass wharf daily at 11am, Steadfast sets sail for the d'Urville Island coast and the surrounding islets. Lunch is served on deck, as we glide silently along, enjoying the passing scenery and the gentle sounds of wind and water. Little Blue Penguins, gannets, shags, and shearwaters are regular company, and we occasionally come up with a pod of dolphins, who like to ride the bow wave as we sail along. Experience the wonder of one of New Zealand's hidden treasures!
