With an early Interislander Ferry Crossing the Arrow Water Taxi arrived on time at Waterfall Bay to take us to Picton. A great service for getting around the Sounds. Booking ahead is the key to good service.

Fran was our skipper, not only was she a skilled driver she was also very knowledgeable about the area. She was very easy to talk to and have a laugh with. If only she could have done all our tours. Rate 10 out of 10

We used Arrow to get from Anakiwa to Mistletoe Bay so we could walk the Queen Charlotte Track back. All went really well and we had a lovely day.
