One of the most popular day hikes, the moderately challenging 5-hour walk between Ship Cove and Furneaux Lodge covers 9 miles (14 km). After a scenic boat ride to the start of your walk, take a moment to discover the history of Ship Cove. In 1770, Captain James Cook resupplied his ship here and it became his favorite anchorage in New Zealand. You can browse informative displays about Cook and the Maori; see a monument to Cook and carved sculptures by Maori artisans. Enjoy the pretty beach where you may spot shorebirds such oyster catchers and weka.
Lodge to Lodge Walk
One of the easiest sections of the track, the Lodge to Lodge walk begins at Furneaux Lodge and ends at the Punga Cove Resort. After about a 1.5-hour boat ride, arrive at Furneax Lodge. If you like, purchase coffee or brunch at the lodge before setting out on your trek. The trail mostly follows the coastline around Endeavour Inlet, winding through lush native plant life on land that was once farmland and has been allowed to regenerate with native bush. Stop to see the remains of an antimony mine and read the posted information panels about it on-site. Continue along the shore then through native forest with fantastic views right of the Inlet and the larger Queen Charlotte Sound.

This route permits you to walk a lot of the track in the shortest amount of time. Expect to walk just under 15 miles (24 km) on a challenging full-day walk that takes about 8 hours, and is well worth the effort. Your day starts when your boat leaves Picton in the morning and drops you off at Torea Bay.
