This is a short and scenic journey which takes you along Queen Charlotte Drive to Havelock and then on to the Pelorus River. (an option is to return via Blenheim, which takes about the same time).
Its takes approximately 1 hour to Havelock
Try The Mussel Pot in the main street
or Slip Inn Cafe down by the marina
Heidi’s Cafe in the main street is my favourite for something simple.
