Located close to, and connected with, at the northeasten end of the South Island, Pelorus Sound is one of the longest of the Marlborough Sounds. It winds southwards from the strait for 35 kilometres between steeply sloped wooded hills. Its southern end is close to the town of Havelock, 30 kilometres northwest of Blenheim, New Zealand. Pelorus Sound has several major arms, notably Tennyson Inlet, Tawhitinui Reach, and Kenepuru Sound.
Pelorus Sounds's industry is based around timber (pine) forestry (though there are sections which have never been felled) and mussel farming. There is also some tourism industry and private holiday homes are becoming more common. Most of the settled places are very hard to reach overland, and are often connected mainly via the 'Pelorus Express', a 40-people capacity dedicated mail boat doing three different routes once weekly each from Havelock.
