Places to Visit near Rai Valley


Dolphin Encounter Kaikoura

In amongst the varied and vibrant sea life found off Kaikoura is the spectacular dusky dolphin, found in pods of up to several hundred strong and one of the most delightfully exuberant characters of the Southern Ocean.

Dolphin Encounter operates tours by boat up to three times per day for swimming with or watching these magnificent dolphins.

Dolphin Encounter provides the opportunity for you to go swim and watch wild dusky dolphins in their natural environment off the coast of Kaikoura, New Zealand. Tours have two options, watching or swimming, with both options occurring on the same boats. Whether you choose to view from the boat or join the dolphins in the ocean, you will have a unique experience that will stay with you for a lifetime!

Pelorus Mail Boat

Join one of the last remaining ‘Genuine’ Mail Boats left in the world, still delivering mail and groceries as it has been for almost a century. Whilst we are delivering, you’ll visit isolated homesteads nestled in quiet secluded bays. View mussel farms and see why Pelorus Sound is the mussel capital of the world. Old timers row out in dinghies to meet us, while some receive their supplies on tiny, unspoilt beaches. The people of the Marlborough Sounds are as much a part of the area as the history and majestic beauty. It really is a great way to cruise the Marlborough Sounds!

Over the winter months (May to October), we deliver on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays; and during the summer months (November to April), we deliver Monday through to Saturday. Also, during the summer months, you can join us on Sundays for our ‘Best of the Sounds Cruise’. View all cruise options now. Not only that, but we offer transfers and boat charters around the Pelorus Sound!

Join us on our mail boat for the experience of a lifetime. Let us take you on our spectacular mail run or drop you at your accommodation in the Marlborough Sounds.
