A place on one of the earlier ferries will set you up for a good start to the day as you watch the sun rise out to sea. As you enter the Marlborough Sounds it is worthwhile to make it out onto the deck of the ferry as the scenery here is picture perfect.
Once in Nelson indulge in seafood, wine and stunning beaches. Many bars and clubs offer live music and entertainment throughout summer so check out the local iSite for information.
