Havelock Township and Marina is the gateway to the Pelorus Sound, well known for the mussel and salmon farming. The large seafood company is also situated right here.

Your Jet Boat ride is an exhilarating pre-lunch experience. You boat captain is an experienced 'boatie' with great knowledge about the area and he understands that 360-degree spins go well with his passengers. As you travel slowly out of the Havelock Harbour you will reach the more open area of the Sound where you will find your thrills. After which, a leisurely jaunt through the Pelorus River Estuary while you sit back and relax. Your captain will share a commentary of the trip intermingled with the history of the area. The crystal clear water of the Pelorus River was the main shipping route for timber and merchandise to and from the Havelock region.

You will see the natural wetlands that are home to a variety of native and migratory birds and historic Maori sites. Your ride will take about 1.5-hours bringing you safely back into Havelock for a seafood lunch (if you are not a seafood fan you will find other tempting flavours on the menu). Seated overlooking the Marina, you can savour the Marlborough flavours accompanied by a matching wine. Many boats and fishing vessels can be viewed from the big glass windows or you could be sitting on the deck in a nice sea breeze. 

Your mix and match options after lunch could include: travelling further north-west 30km to Pelorus Bridge for a short walk to overlook the swiftly flowing Pelorus River where the Hobbits were found having fun in their film set.  This river was formed by glacial river course and earthquake activity more than 150,000 years ago. Local artist galleries or special wood craft sculptures, feed their pet sheep, discover handmade greenstone or paua jewellery and even have a go yourself. Award winning gardens, or sit and relax at a local famous brewery...(yes right here!) with a cold glass of beer or cider. A 'must stop' at Makana Chocolate Boutique Confections at the conclusion of your tour.
