Dining Day Trip

cuisine dining at the bay

Savour the scenery in the magnificent Marlborough Sounds.


Rarely is such an exceptional experience so easily enjoyed. Few places in the world combine the breathtaking beauty of a landscape and a high street dining experience. 

Head out from scenic Picton Wharf on the long-established Cougar Line Cruise, to savour the splendour of Queen Charlotte Sound that so captivated intrepid explorer Captain James Cook. Or simply decide to join us on one of our private moorings, as you sail the Sounds.

Relax over a meal at the Bay of Many Coves, as the serenity of New Zealand’s South Island continues to reveal its timeless appeal.


All-day dining on the waterfront

Climb aboard the scheduled Cougar Line water taxi service, departing at 10am (Summer Only) or at 1.30pm (year-round) and join us at the waterfront café where you will enjoy:

  • Welcome glass of bubbles from No.1 Estate in Marlborough
  • A Main selection from our all-day dining menu
  • Cheese platter for two with coffee or tea to finish. 

Contact the team at Cougar Line to make your reservation on ph (03) 573-7925, or email them.
