Queen Charlotte Sound
A jewel of a waterway located at the top of the South Island of New Zealand is Queen Charlotte Sound. This is the location for Queen Charlotte Sound RealSwim Adventure starting on 27 Feb 2015. The Queen Charlotte Sound is very well known for its stunning scenery, the Queen Charlotte track and as an arrival and departure point for the interisland ferry. It also happens to be a direct link with New Zealands Cook Strait, one of the world renowned ‘Oceans Seven’ Marathon swims.
The Queen Charlotte Sound RealSwim begins with a meet up in Picton. We take a charter boat out to our accommodation; The Point. Our hosts John and Nicky will quickly make you feel welcome in this stunning slice of Kiwiana paradise. That evening we have a quick dip of the wharf in Blackwood bay followed by a classic Kiwi bbq dinner soaking up the views of the inner sound.
Day two of this trip and the swim exploration of Queen Charlotte Sound begins in earnest; in the morning properly explore Blackwood bay with a deep water swim followed by a coastal adventure swimming the coastline back to The Point. After lunch we head out into the main waterway with options of steep ledges to swim along, Islands to circumnavigate and fun point to point swims.
Day three swimmers are normally well in their ‘swim groove’ by now and we head straight out into the main water way to continue our RealSwim exploring, adventures and fun. We head back to The Point for lunch and an early afternoon siesta before literally swimming for our dinner, your clothes will be delivered, a hot shower awaits and a fantastic final night dinner.
Day four is the final day of the RealSwim adventure starting with a wake up swim and breakfast. We back and return to Picton for farewells.
As with all out RealSwim adventures the focus is on fun, friendship and photographs in a stunning New Zealand location all set around the wonderful sport of open water swimming.
