The Kenepuru Sound is the smallest of the three major waterways that make up the Marlborough Sounds. Renowned for its aqua or turquoise water colour (due to its shallower waters) the Kenepuru Sound is surrounded by sandy beaches, and a mix of native bush and farmland.
Your day includes paddling through the turquoise waters to a mussel farm to gather this delicious seafood for lunch (though other options are available for non-seafood lovers). After lunch, continue your paddling experience - past sandy beaches, marine farms, and even a shipwreck, before returning to Portage Bay.
This is a wonderful day out, exploring a different Sound to the more well-known Queen Charlotte Sound. It is easy for you to join this trip if you are staying at Portage Resort Hotel or any of the accommodation houses in the Kenepuru Sound, and we can organise water transfers out of Picton to join the trip also.
