Marlborough Sounds from Picton in the South Island of New Zealand

The Marlborough Sounds are an extensive network of sea-drowned valleys
created by a combination of land subsidence and rising sea levels
at the north of the South Island of New Zealand.

 According to Māori mythology, the Sounds are the prows of the sunken waka ( canoe )
Aoraki ( Mount Cook ).

The Marlborough Sounds are connected to the Cook Strait
where the North Island is at its closest to the 
South Island.
The inter-island road, rail and passenger ferry service
between Picton and
Wellington travels through the Sounds.
