Make it happen...

When dreaming up your adventure there’ll be a few questions you have and a couple of decisions to be made. And as always there is a little organising to do on the way to paradise. So we hope the following will help you along the way.

When dreaming up your charter you BOOK & PAY  for the vessel regardless of how many people you choose to bring. You get to choose the dates, locations, activities and of course your company.. be it family, friends, clients or workmates.

Alternatively you can book onto one of our Join-a-groups at a set per person price..

Should you have any other questions or simply want to chat rather than read about what is possible just give us a call anytime.

Nice to see you're looking at your own CHARTER


So get in touch and let us know when you'd like to come, how long for and what you'd like to do... and we'll make it happen for you!

Get started...

Getting Here

M.V. Flightless is based in the coastal waters of Fiordland beyond the Southern Alps of New Zealand. But in order to start your adventure you’ll have to get there first. The quaint township of Te Anau is where it all starts.

In general all clients fly into Fiordland by helicopter to maximise their playtime and we'll happily organise that for you as we have a little practise and can secure good rates.

So simply make sure you find your way to the Manapouri Airport the day of your departure and we'll set off on our adventure from there.

We take along a maximum of 12 good people at a time, who can move into 5 cabins all with ensuite  bathrooms, central heating, ventilation as well as USB charging points.
All meals and hot drinks are supplied and we're happy to cater to any dietary requirements. We supply a variety of fishing rods and tackle, 7mm two piece wetsuits, fins, masks, snorkels, gloves, booties, weight belts, cylinders, BCDs, yoga mats, bean bags, kayaks, paddle boards, insect repellant, bedding and we even share our sunscreen...  So the only things to bring are some clothes (we do have a washing machine and dryer on board), any treats or alcohol you may want to indulge in and of course a sense of adventure.

What to Bring

There is no schedule or set itinerary. Every charter is as different as the people on board. So getting in touch with us is where any booking starts.

If you have already been on a trip with us and know exactly what you want, give us a call, drop by for a coffee or write us an email. We’ll check if your desired dates are available.  Otherwise all you need is an idea of when and how long you’d like to be on board for. Simply get in touch and from there we can work on the details of transfers, timings and memories to create along the way.

We look forward to having you onboard with us.
