The Mail Run From Nov '17

The Mail Run From Nov '17

Join one of the last remaining ‘Genuine’ Mail Boats left in the world, still delivering mail and groceries as it has been for almost a century. Let us take you on our spectacular mail run through the Marlborough Sounds.

One of the last genuine mail boats left anywhere in the world, the Pelorus Mail Boat is an iconic and fascinating look in to yesteryear (the good old days).

Our mail boat departs from the friendly little township/village of Havelock roughly half way between Picton and Nelson, or a third of the way between Blenheim and Nelson.

We deliver mail, parcels and passengers out into the beautiful Pelorus Sound three days a week (Tuesdays/Thursdays/Fridays). While each day has us navigating different inlets and jetties, they all showcase the stunning scenery and majestic wildlife of the Marlborough Sounds.

Each of the three mail runs include commentary on the history of the Sounds, its residents and a full Greenshell Mussel Tour (weather permitting).

Join us on our mail boat for the experience of a lifetime. 

Enthusiastic crew and family owned; you can’t help but enjoy this relaxing and personal experience in the spectacular Marlborough Sounds.

  • Discover Hidden bays and coves – That most tourists never get to
  • Learn the fascinating history of these characters who live way out here, far from town
  • See the local wildlife up close and personal and learn about the rare species in the area.

Complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits are available all day.



(Please Note - We have a reduced passenger limit set for our
online booking system to allow us to control the maximum capacity depending on
weather. If the trip should appear full please use the "Waiting List"
option or call us on 03 574 1088.)
