Explore some of the world’s best cruising, right here in the Marlborough Sounds, onboard 'Katabatic'. 

42-year-old local owner, Skipper and Chef, Grant Orchard, specialises in tailor-made cruising, sightseeing, fishing and overnight charters.

Enjoy the beauty of the Marlborough Sounds with a full or half-day excursion, for up to 8 guests, all fishing gear supplied, and beautiful local cuisine, prepared by Grant himself. Contact us to enquire about overnight bookings.


Lady Karen 

'Lady Karen' is a classic twin-engine motor launch built as a sea-going game fishing boat in 1957.

Drop a line down and try your luck, or visit historic Captain Cook’s Monument at Ship Cove, be amazed by the cheeky birdlife on Motuara Island or just simply put the anchor down and soak up the Sounds experience.
