This is a sea access only place.
The Pelorus Mail Boat offers the cheapest fare out to Nydia Bay of $45 per person and half price for children 15 yrs or under.
Three other water taxi services operate out of Havelock and can be found online. Cheaper deals can be struck for shared trips so it pays to ask. Guests should check out transport prices BEFORE they book because the water taxis are expensive.
There is also the option to walk in via the beautiful Nydia Track from Duncan's Bay or Kaiuma Bay which takes 3 or 4 hours.

Other things to note
The remoteness of this place is a part of it's charm but it does mean you have to organize and pay for sea transport out here.
We have kept our tariff low to offset this extra expense for our guests.

Location

Havelock, Marlborough, New Zealand

Imagine a place that is completely peaceful far away from the noise of the city.
From cars and roads.
Forest and sea, mountains and beaches, all silent save for birdsong and the wind in the trees....
But to know Nydia Bay you need to be here.
