Upcoming Join-a-Groups

When joining one of our groups you simply book and pay for YOUR spot only.. we'll do the organising, set the dates, transfers and activities to bring together a set of beautiful strangers soon to be friends.. alternatively you can get your own group together and charter the vessel exclusively.

Every adventure is as unique as the people on board and with that there is no schedule to follow.. this means you can always kayak, fish, SCUBA dive, paddleboard, free dive or spearfish, snorkel, walk, explore, watch the wildlife, immerse yourself in the history, enjoy the fresh seafood, get lost behind your camera or simply relax in the hot tub.. it's up to YOU!

A wonderful good day

Have fun exploring and we hopefully see you soon...

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 Tamatea project.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 the focus 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.

Thinking about Fiordland National Park now can make it hard to imagine that it was in fact where European history started for New Zealand some 248 years ago now. Captain Cook sailed into Dusky Sound in 1773... his records of the seal numbers as well as charts which meant safe passage brought sealers and whalers to the area. The very first whaling station in New Zealand was built in Preservation Inlet. Soon the mining followed and townships popped up in the southern Fiords driven by the gold fever.

Although the native bush has reclaimed most there are still remains to be discovered if you know where to look.
