Plan your day before you arrive

Make the most of your day ashore by planning ahead. First and foremost there is a range of tours available through your cruise line which depart from the wharf on arrival. If you are looking for something not available through the cruise line check out this range of personalised tours here.

Arrival into Marlborough
Your cruise ship will berth at the Port of Marlborough where you will be greeted by the Flower Ladies at the wharf. Cruise shuttles will be waiting to take you on the short transfer to Picton and the local i-SITE Visitor Information Centre where you will be met by our friendly Cruise Meet & Greet Team.

Collect a copy of the self-guided walking map of the Picton to help you explore the town. Picton i-SITE Visitor Information Centre is the place to plan your day on arrival and is also the pick-up point for independently pre-booked tours. Check out our brilliant range of tours to book so you can avoid the waiting and get straight into experiencing stunning Marlborough.

“I look out and see seals rolling around, gannets diving, and there was a dolphin just there a few weeks ago, so you are reminded daily how remarkable it is here.”
