Make it happen...

Join us on a multi-day adventure through some of the most remote and untouched wilderness areas of New Zealand; following the natural rhythm of sun and tides aboard the 27m expedition vessel M.V. Flightless with a maximum of 12 friends, family, clients or friends yet to meet... no schedules or itineraries... simply YOUR adventure to unfold. You can relax or pack your days as full as you like and anything in between.. it's up to YOU.

Experience the raw beauty of the vast World Heritage Area that is Fiordland National Park, with its steep mountain cliffs towering over ocean-flooded valleys. Or explore the history and unique wildlife in the remote coastline of Stewart Island.

As we discover ever-new aspects of these stunning environments the choice of how to embrace them is yours. The variety of experiences range from kayaking and paddle-boarding,   shore excursions , over hunting, fishing and seafood collecting, practising full utilisation for anything that is gathered, to SCUBA and free diving, snorkelling and spearfishing as well as photography and bird watching. Our crew of salties are passionate about and can help you better understand the unique ecosystems, wildlife, conservation efforts and local history or you can get involved in giving back to the place meaningfully. And of course you can simply relax in the hot tub and soak up the atmosphere.

Every trip with us is as unique as the people on board. We are here to inspire and realise what you imagine to be the perfect experience.  You can classically charter the boat and choose your own dates as well as company or book a spot on one of our ‘scheduled’ Join-a-groups for an adventure organised by us.

Either way everything asides from alcohol is included... catering, bedding and towels, fishing rods and tackle, yoga mats, an extensive library, dive cylinders, BCDs and weights, fins, masks, snorkels, catch bags, knives as well as 2 piece 7mm wetsuits, spearfishing floats and 20m float lines, kayaks, bean bags, paddle boards, free-diving gear and of course a hot tub on the top deck.

However you decide to join us, we’re excited about showing you around the paradise that we call home. In the meantime have a lovely day and feel free to get in touch to make YOUR adventure happen.
