Marlborough Sounds Kenepuru Sound

The Marlborough Sounds are a series of inlets and islands at the northeast of South Island. The Marlborough Sounds are the main point of access to South Island if you are travelling by ferry from North Island and Picton is the main terminal
.
There are a two roads leadng off from the main highway between Nelson and Picton into the Marlborough Sounds One for Kenepuru Sound and one for French Pass.



There are a number of places you can camp in the sounds but there are no amenities except at French pass where there is a toilet and a cold shower.
If you plan to explore the Sounds extensively you would be well advised to stock up well with food as there is very little opportunity to buy any except at French Pass.
The easiest way to explore the Marlborough Sounds is to travel by water, either by yacht or canoe.

The hardest way is to walk around the coast line. The later is very rewarding though and there are magnificent views to be seen from the top of the ridges above the Sounds.
