What to take:

It pays to keep with you when travelling to the boat gum boots & rain coat, insectrepellent as you may not always be with your gear to be able to get to them.

Because Fiordland has four seasons in one day, line your bags & backpacks with plastic bin liners as this will help to keep gear dry. Nothing like sleeping in a soggy sleeping bag!

Bring own sleeping bag, towel. (Pillow provided) along with basic wet weather gear, warm & some light clothing, gum boots, light shoes for inside. insect repellent, a hat or cap as the sand flies will find parting or bold spot. Plus sunscreen.

We will ring prior to the charter season & ask for the approx amount of beer that your group may consume!! As we take this in on the boat, as it’s too heavy to fly in by helicopter. By all means bring your choice of wine & something for that hot toddy.

For those who dive please provide a diving certificate.
