"Well, back in Melbourne and down to
earth again - but our Overture fishing trip experience in the Marlborough
Sounds was an absolute highlight. Not only was the fishing profitable - a
great catch of blue cod and terakhi - but the whole environment, the boat,
the skipper, and given our success, the obviously expert fishing guide,
all made for a wonderful experience for our group from Melbourne. Oh - and
the local participants also had a ball; they have been boating and fishing
in the Sounds for over 50 years, and the Overture experience was one of
the best. Thank you again for such a well planned and executed day out -
great fishing, great food, great company and an all round marvelous time."

"I just wanted to thank you for all
the extra yards you went to put together the trip for us, when no one else
would help me. We had such a wonderful time on the gorgeous 'Overture', it
is a lovely vessel. Your crew were great company and did an awesome job -
even showed us the salmon farm and old whaling station! The dolphins were
a fabulous highlight and a wonderful way to end the wonderful day !!
Thanks again ..."

"Our evening boat cruise with Overture
Charters was a thoroughly enjoyable experience for our company and
American guests. We required a professional and comfortable setting that
could add to our visitors' Marlborough experience. The feedback I received
from colleagues and guests alike was very positive - the experience was
the highlight of our American guests' trip! I would recommend this charter
to anybody seeking a professional and luxurious Sounds cruise. Our skipper
was accommodating and helpful, and the assistance and recommendations I
received from Overture Charters while organising the event made my job a
lot easier. The evening was one that we all agreed we would readily do

"Our company had a VIP couple and
their two teenage children visiting New Zealand from the U.S.. We wanted to give them a
unique, "money can't buy this at home" experience in
Marlborough. Two nights on Overture including a cocktail party with some
of our local shareholders, a dinner ashore at one of the lodges, and an
evening cruise back to a secluded mooring simply blew them away."
