Many cruise ships call into Picton on their cruises around New Zealand, because of the natural beauty of the Marlborough Sounds, of this small town and the fact that there is plenty to see and do within walking distance and the great weather, makes Picton a very popular visiting place. The Voltarne is about the largest ship that can actually dock beside the wharf, though some larger ships anchor out in the channel and land the people on shore with long boats, when beside the wharf they can easily stroll into the town and along the foreshore.
The Cruise Ship Voltarne at the Picton wharf, it is framed by the Coat Hanger Bridge a local feature, the gracefully curved bridge gives walking access to Shelly Beach and the Marina, because big yachts sail through this stretch of water it has to be rather high to allow the tall masts to get through.
