|Cruise ship docked at Picton, New Zealand|
Picton: This small port at the head of the Marlborough Sounds is the terminal for inter-island ferries and is becoming increasingly popular as a port of call for cruise ships. The ships dock at Waitohi Wharf. As you can see from this photo, it is very close to town. A paved walkway leads from the port into the township or you can take the free shuttle bus that runs all day.
