Take a cruise to Motuara Island and see the stunning Bird Sanctuary before your very eyes. On the cruise, you will get to learn about the history and wildlife of Marlborough through your knowledgable captain. Once the boat is near the island, listen carefully because a chorus of songs by the island’s rare birds will be the first thing to greet you. After you disembark, explore the island at your own pace and watch out for some of the rare and endangered wildlife that live there. Finally, before you leave, enjoy your complimentary coffee or tea while you search the waters for the Blue Penguins and the rare Hector’s dolphins, known to make surprise appearances near the island.
