"We recently hosted a group of old friends from overseas and endeavoured to find the best ways of showing them New Zealand. Are we happy about our choice of Overture Charters for this purpose? An absolutely positive experience and we can rate Overture ten out of ten. They are brilliant in all aspects of organising a perfect cruise and we now recommend them to all our friends and colleagues."

Chartered Professional Engineer - Christchurch ... January 2010

"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 ..."

A small guided fishing charter group - mid winter - from Wellington

"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 again!"

Marketing Assistant of a local wine company - Marlborough

"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."
