Raetihi Lodge stands on the shore of Kenepuru Sound in New Zealand’s panoramic Marlborough Sounds region, in the South Island. There are many options to get to Raetihi Lodge depending from which direction you’re coming.
Raetihi Lodge offers our own private Water Transfers from Havelock Marina with our Raetihi Lodge skipper and boat. This is an on-demand service for between 2 – 10 people.
The price for only 2 people from Havelock Marina to Raetihi Lodge (and whatever time suits you) is $75 per person, each way. If there are other guests arriving that same afternoon and you have flexibility to join that boat trip, then the price comes down to $45 per person each way. Children 12 years and under are free travelling with their family. Please call or email for further information or bookings.
Havelock Marina is 35 minutes from Blenheim, by car, and approximately one hour from Nelson or Picton by car.
Parking is available at Havelock Marina for $6 per day.
