Havelock is a gateway to sea-kayaking in the Pelorus and connected sounds. Once on the water you can see seals, sea birds and dolphins. Independent or full guided rentals are available, including overnight trips. Alternatively you can go fishing, hunting or trekking.

Havelock's 350 boat marina is the base for New Zealand's greenshell mussel industry and for recreational launches and yachts. You may like to try the mussels in a Havelock restaurant or take a cruise and visit a mussel farm.

Pelorus Mail boat leaves at 0930 every day and is a great way to see the whole inlet.
If you want to do the crazy version, Pelorus Hobbit Run does a kayak tour which follows the route the Dwarves took in Barrels in the famed movie.

Another great way to look around is by mountainbike, a local firm (link below) can shuttle you to one end or the other.
