Myths and Legends Eco Tours offer personalised eco-cruises in the beautiful sheltered waterways of the Marlborough Sounds, New Zealand.

Come join us, a local Maori family specialising in the culture, history and our environment. Hear our stories while sitting back relaxing and taking in the wildlife, dolphins, birds and seals with the stunning nature bush backdrop of the Marlborough Sounds.

Ours is a historic, cultural, personalised, Eco Tour; conducted on a 70 year old classic Marlborough Sounds launch that is warm, quiet, cosy and dignified.

You will find us in a picturesque little fishing village in a town called Picton, at the head of the Queen Charlotte Sounds; a sheltered inland waterway in the greater Marlborough Sounds that consists of hundreds of bays, beaches & inlets.

As a region, we pride ourselves on our initiatives to promote the Marlborough Sounds as "A world wide centre of environmental excellence".

Come and enjoy the sights, the bird song and the amazing bio-diversity that the Marlborough Sounds has to offer - the Dolphins, seals, fish, birds, and beautiful podacarp forests.


Takutai and Peter

Thank You! For your warm hospitality a most incredible tour of the Sounds, and for us. For me, being with you for three days accomplished the last and maybe most important goal of this trip; really get to know some local people. Touring didn't allow us to do that.

I will take home the adventures of the past three days, and the story of Takutai and Pete, as well as the story of Tutanekai and Hinemoa! You two are worthy of your very own legends. It's been a pleasure to meet you.
