Where is Clova Cribs?
Clova Bay is in the ‘deep’ Pelorus and is suitable for fishing, swimming, diving, tramping, shellfish, water skiing, mountain biking, hunting, sailing, or just as a base from which to explore the Marlborough Sounds by boat or car.
Access is by road (approximately 2 hours drive from Linkwater), or sea (approximately 1 hour ride from Havelock Marina) or air (fly with Sounds Air to an airstrip adjacent to Clova Cribs (www.soundsair.com) or fly with Picton Floatplane Services (www.nz-scenic-flights.co.nz). Another option is to water taxi from Picton to Torea Bay (which is close to the Portage Resort). This is about a 10 minute boat ride from Picton. We can organise a pick up for you from there - and it’s about a one hour drive by road to Clova Cribs. Alternatively, you can catch a second water taxi from Portage across Kenepuru Sound to Waitaria Bay (about 5-10 minutes) and we can organise a pick up for you from Waitaria Bay. From there its only about a 10 minute drive to Clova Cribs.
Give us a call or drop an email to us if you want more information or options on getting here.
All cribs have their own decks or outdoor areas with BBQ’s and are fully furnished, including TV’s with DVD players (no TV reception - so bring your own movies), radio/CD players, kitchen utensils, automatic washing machines, microwaves, bedding,, etc.
