Great day out. 3 hours is the right time. Get to see marlborough sounds as well as a muscle farm with informative commentary. And then freshly cooked muscles and a glass of sav blanc.

We hadn't planned to do much other than a lazy day in Havelock but I'm so glad we popped into the information centre who recommended this tour. Our guides Matty and Britney were fantastic, the views were amazing and the Mussels were to die for. I highly recommend this tour.
