Spend a day cruising through the Queen Charlotte Sound eco-marine haven, where seals, dolphins, penguins, gannets and shearwaters abound, to visit Motuara Island.

A Department of Conservation Marine Mammal Watch permit allows us to interact with the local wildlife along the 30 minute journey to the Island, a bird sanctuary that provides a safe haven for many rare species, including the South Island Saddleback and Bush Robin. You will have approx 2 hours on the island. A Flora and Fauna identification sheet and map will be provided, with an onboard commentary by the skipper highlighting points of interest.

  • A day walk from Resolution Bay to Furneaux Lodge on the Queen Charlotte Track, 10.5km
