Picton, New Zealand

Approximately 2 Hours
Meals not included
Board a shuttle bus for a short ride to Picton township, where you join a local guide for a 1½-hour, two-mile walking tour. Walk along the waterfront and shoreline and learn about the history, flora and fauna of the area. Picton was once called Waitohi and, in the early European settlement years, whaling and fishing were its main industries. Today, it is a thriving tourism town.
At the marina, see the fishing vessels, pleasure-craft and water taxis; then, pass over the ‘coathanger’ bridge and up to a lookout (about a 10-minute steady incline).
Make your way back along the loop track and finish with the flavors of Picton--an ice cream, delicious coffee or refreshment on the waterfront. Return to the ship by shuttle bus.
Minimum age is 10 years. A donation to "A World without Whales" is included in the tour price.
