Wonderful Marlborough Sounds Experience

Having travelled long distances to go rowing I found the most enjoyable aspect of the Marlborough Sounds Tour, was we actually got to row the full tour. The sea boats are amazing & thoroughly enjoyed a bit of “rough” weather rowing home.

Hospitality @ Hopewell Lodge could not be faulted. Meals brilliant & you couldn’t ask for a better selection of breakfast dishes.

Kevin & Trisha Strickland – best hosts ever. The safety aspect is top priority for these two and if Kevin said jump, I’d ask how high as I know he wouldn’t put any of the “crew” in a situation they shouldn’t be in. I have total faith in both Trisha & Kevin’s ability on & off the water.
