Limited mobility, it is easier to see, and experience Picton if you tour by boat. We arrived in Picton coming on the ferry from Wellington ie North to South island.

The sounds are so beautiful, whether you are walking, cycling or on the water cruising, fishing or on a water taxi. If you come to NZ this is a must do location.

Queen Charlotte sound is a lovely place. The walking track is scenic but the best scenery is seen from the water. There are boats to rent, water taxis and all sorts of on water excursions so check them out.
