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.
