What’s Happening in Havelock
Local Events and Happenings for June (and beyond)
Every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday:
Pelorus Mail Boat: @ Havelock Marina 9:30am-5pm(ish). It is only a three minute walk to the Mail Boat from the Havelock Holiday Park. A short stroll back to your cabin or van after your trip, freshen up and then walk to the nearby Captains Daughter for a magnificent meal to complete your first Havelock Experience. The Mail Boat offers 10% discount for Kiwi Park Members so join up when you get here and take advantage of this great offer.
Off Season Discount – Yes, Jim is doing it again. He is offering another crazy discount during the off season. Ironically it’s often the best time to be cruising the Sounds with dolphins, calm seas and crisp temperatures being the norm. Jim is offering 20% discount to start and if you don’t manage to see any Dolphins then he’ll increase that discount to 50%. You cannot get better than that.
Stay with the Havelock Holiday Park and we’ll give you an introductory postcard to claim the offer. Stay with Havelock Holiday Park for two nights and we’ll offer you a special deal as well.
