Join New Zealand's original mail boat.

The Pelorus Mail Boat has been delivering mail by water to the residents of the Pelorus Sound/Te Hoiere in the Marlborough Sounds, at the top of New Zealand’s South Island, since 1918.

For over 100 years The Mail Run – carrying mail, along with groceries, farming supplies and tourists – has cruised the waters of the remote Sounds, creating a lifeline to the outside world for those living in areas without road access.

Join a day cruise on the mail run and meet local residents, learn the history of Pelorus Sound, spot plentiful wildlife and enjoy our beautiful and unique part of the world.

Join us on our mail boat for the experience of a lifetime. Let us take you on our spectacular mail run or drop you at your accommodation in the Marlborough Sounds.

Exclusive charters and group enquiries also welcome.
