Nothing quite says "lunch" like a Beachcomber Cruises

Day in the Sounds. Make a day of it departing Picton at 9am and cruise up

through the Queen Charlotte Sound while enjoying your skipper's commentary

on the surrounds, residents and local wildlife. You will have the opportunity

to spend 30 minutes ashore at historical Ship Cove, a favourite anchorage of

Captain Cook in the 1770's before being dropped off at Furneaux Lodge.


Built in the early 1900's, Furneaux Lodge is nestled at the foot

of Mount Furneaux in Endeavour Inlet, surrounded by 2000 acres of native virgin

forest. Set in three acres of lawns and gardens, Furneaux Lodge is totally

unspoilt as access is by boat or walking only. Sit back and relax or work off a

little of that lunch with a walk through the native forest to the lodges

very own waterfall.


Upon your return board the Mail Boat and head back to Picton.



and beverages are all payable to Furneaux Lodge directly and are not included

in your cruise cost.
