Join us on our History Adventure as we explore the remote fiord of Dusky Sound on board our 27m expedition vessel M.V. Flightless for a very special commemoration.
This year marks the anniversary of the arrival of Captain Cook and the first onshore face to face meeting between tangata whenua and European sailors.. and of course the naming of so many places we all call home.
So join us as we navigate through the waters of our remote fiords, following traces of history and storytelling.. in a vessel only 5 meters shorter than Cook's Endeavour and a few more comforts for a maximum of 12 clients compared to the 95 seamen...
The 250th anniversary commemorations have been given the Maori name Tuia, meaning to weave together, symbolising bringing people together in unity... an opportunity to hold some honest conversations about Māori and European settlement of New Zealand to guide us as we go forward together.
Although history is the focus there'll be plenty of time to enjoy Fiordland for what it is today.. kayak, hunt, free dive, fish, paddle board, walk, birdwatch, relax in the hot tub as well as to get lost behind your camera.. it's up to you.
We can cater for up to 12 clients and everything asides from alcohol is included... catering, bedding and towels, fishing rods and tackle, dive cylinders and weights as well as kayaks, paddle boards, free-diving gear and of course a hot tub on the top deck.. Not to forget your scenic helicopter flights to and from the vessel.
M.V. Flightless is spacious - fully insulated and comfortable - watermaker, second saloon in the wheelhouse, air conditioning, diesel stove, huge heatable back deck which is also partially under cover, washing machine and dryer on board - three passionate and qualified crew to look after you
So all there is to bring along is yourselves, a little luggage, a sense of adventure and of course any special treats you’d like to indulge in whilst onboard.
So you just have to get yourself to Te Anau and we'll take care of everything from here.
