You will leave Picton at 8am with Cougar Line, Marlborough Sounds' premier water transport company, and once arriving you will have approx. 2 hours to explore the Island independently, allowing you to enjoy the bird life and scenery at your own pace. The bird life on Motuara Island is relatively unafraid of humans, so this is a great trip for bird watching. Rare species such as the South Island Saddleback and Bush Robin live on the Island and small blue penguins also nest in boxes alongside the track.
The Early Bird Eco Cruise returns to Picton at 1:00pm.
