These are 2 of our 3 boats that we use in for our Picton - based tours.  Both are extremely comfortable 13 metre catamarans that cruise at 20 knots (40 km/hr).

Delphinus and Miss Te Rawa are both in Safe Ship Management (SSM) and are operated by fully qualified and licensed skippers and crew.  All vessels are available for private or group charter in the Marlborough Sounds with activities ranging from diving to sightseeing - just drop us a line and see what we can do for you.
