We recently took our staff out for a weekend mid-winter ‘thank you’,  as part of the treat, we had a day on Aparima.  The team served the most stunning lunch.  We had a fantastic day and will be keen to do it again this year.   We would thoroughly recommend a trip out on this beautiful yacht in the gorgeous Marlborough Sounds.  The Bennett’s are doing a great job“.

If you want to explore the Marlborough Sounds from the air  – we can organise a trip for you by helicopter in conjunction with us.

To give you a few ideas:

.. Don’t want to drive to Picton if you are in other areas of the island?  we can get the helicopter to pick you up, so you have a perfect birds eye view of the Marlborough Sounds, where we will be waiting for you in Picton or where ever you like, so you can enjoy the area whilst relaxing and dining on board.

.. Walk / mountain-bike the Queen Charlotte Track ( even if it is only a small portion) we can organise your drop off via Helicopter – then meet you at your destination for you to enjoy a nice meal on board the Aparima – you can even stay the night on board to continue the track the next day!

..Enjoy a lunch at one of many beautiful resorts in the Marlborough Sounds, you could be taken there by helicopter then we can pick you up for a sightseeing cruise and take you back to Picton …the possibilities are endless.

..Fly to a secluded beach, where we have set up a table awaiting your arrival and serve you a delicious lunch and afterward take you back so you can enjoy the beautiful scenery whilst keeping a lookout for dolphins who frequent these waters, you may even sight Orcas their larger cousins.

We will work together with you to come up with a fantastic itinerary! Anything is possible….YES we can!
