Join us on our Conservation Adventure as we explore the remote fiord of Dusky Sound on board our 27m expedition vessel Flightless—all profit will go towards the restoration of Tamatea/Dusky Sound.
The Tamatea/Dusky Sound restoration plan has been developed by DOC with the ambitious goal of eradicating pests, re-introducing missing species and filling biodiversity information gaps in the area.
The project area includes Breaksea Sound, Acheron Passage, Wet Jacket Arm, and Dusky Sound itself, including over 700 islands, including New Zealand’s fifth largest island, Resolution Island.
The vision is for Dusky Sound to be one of the most intact ecosystems on Earth, and New Zealand's largest ‘bio bank’—a source of endangered native species that can be sent to pest free locations throughout the country—and this is your chance to be part of this big vision.
Although conservation is part of what we do there'll be plenty of time to kayak, hunt, free dive, fish, discover historic sites, 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. Get in touch with any questions or to book in. To secure your spot we'll require a 20% deposit as well as a completed client information sheet which we'll send to you once you've contacted us.
Have a lovely day and we'll hopefully talk to you soon.
Your Pure Salt crew.
