Enjoy the day at historic Ship Cove.

Named by Captain James Cook on 15 January 1770 when his ship The Endeavour anchored here to replenish supplies of food, water and wood. It became a favourite anchorage of Captain Cook and he returned here a further four times between 1770 and 1777. 

Take the opportunity to dabble in the creek where Captain Cook made home brew for his crew and share the beach with the resident wildlife. Have your photo taken beside the Captain Cook Monument commemorating his visits to this area or just relax and enjoy the tranquil surrounds.

Be sure to not miss out on the walk to the waterfall approx. 1km from Ship Cove through dense lush native bush.

On re-joining your vessel in the afternoon cruise via Endeavour Inlet to view Furneaux Lodge and Punga Cove Resort before returning to Picton.
