Beachcomber Cruises Picton are the Marlborough Sounds cruise, transport and Queen Charlotte Track specialists. Family owned and operated our boats are out on the water 364 days of the year, rain or shine. We are proud to work within an environment as stunning and naturally beautiful as the Marlborough Sounds and walking the Queen Charlotte Track is a fantastic way to experience what the area has to offer.
Queen Charlotte Track Water Transport
The Queen Charlotte Track is one of the top ten, finest coastal walking tracks in New Zealand. It starts at Ship Cove and winds its way through virgin native bush over saddles and along ridge lines offering panoramic views and magnificent scenery. This 70km track is a unique partnership of public and private land which means the Queen Charlotte Track is able to offer a range of accommodation from basic camp sites to luxury lodges. Accessibility is also key in that walkers are able to choose whether to walk the track from beginning to end or sections, anything from a few hours to 3-4 days.
It can be difficult to know where to start when there are so many choices and options available but the team at Beachcomber Cruises are Queen Charlotte Track experts and only too happy to offer advice. The Great Track & Pack Pass offers the ultimate in value and flexibility. Choose your start and end point, walking/cycling distances and overnight stopovers where you luggage will be transferred each day. All you have to do is walk and enjoy a variety of landscapes from lush, green New Zealand forest with its vocal birdlife to sweeping panoramic views of the Marlborough Sounds.
