Uncharted Wilderness Tours
If you can imagine journeying through some of the most deserted and exposed landscapes in the Outer Queen Charlotte Sounds, experiencing an exquisite sunrise, with a ringing back ground of bird call, at one of the unique Sanctuary Islands, and communing with the animal and marine life that calls the Marlborough Sounds their home, then join one of our guided tours to explore this unique place. The True Sunrise/Dawn Chorus Overnight Tour is one tour, and the only tour available in Marlborough, that can give you the experience of Motuara Island and its special birdlife at dawn. Travel in Captain Cooks "boat wake" from Ship Cove to the Cape Jackson peninsula for the night and then cruise to Motuara Island bird sanctuary following extreme coastlines of rocky, weather formed, cliff faces learning about its history and wildlife. A chance to see some unique seabirds such as the King Shag, found only in the Marlborough Sounds, the Little Blue Penguin and maybe even the wandering albatross.
You will also learn about Motuara Islands past, present and future and have the opportunity to visit the island and enjoy the special wildlife it has e.g. saddlebacks (tieke), NZ Robin (toutouwai), Bellbird (korimako), tui, NZ pigeon (kereru), Marlborough Green Ghecko and Maud Island Frog. The well formed track up to the top of the island zigzags through regenerating forest where there is a great 360 degree view of the outer sounds and also the chance to see a spectacular sunrise.
We look forward to seeing you and sharing our beautiful, remote and secret world.
