About Us

All cruises are fully catered and guests are accommodated in private double cabins complete with all bedding, towels, and private ensuite bathroom. With a maximum of just 12 guests onboard per trip, this is a truly special experience.

Lunch, a delicious evening meal, and a light breakfast are included. Fishing lines are available to fish the pristine fiord to gather the freshest fish to share on the table.

Common catches can include Blue Cod, Sea Perch, Terakahi, and School Groper. Fishing takes place outside of the marine reserves, we catch and release what we do not intend to use.

Your skipper and crew will provide you with a personalised tour and activities on-board include sightseeing, setting and retrieving crayfish traps, sea fishing, kayaking, and dolphin/mammal watching.

We do not have a bar on board, however, guests are welcome to bring refreshments (alcoholic or otherwise) aboard as they wish, to enjoy with their evening meals.
