Fiordland is a special place and at the core of Fiordland Charters ethos is the willingness to share all of what it has to offer. The MV Pembroke is comfortably fitted out to accommodate small private groups of up to 8 passengers. This allows your crew to engage and host you at a personal level, sharing local knowledge, stories and spin a good yarn. Explore the Dusky/Breaksea Archipelago at your own pace, no two trips are the same and itineraries are tailored daily while onboard to suit your needs. Whether you choose a 3 or a 7 night charter, you will leave wanting to come back again.
Depending on your interests your charter itineraries can include:
Fiordland is famous for its fishing with a range of species on offer from Blue Cod, Tarakihi, Butterfish and Hapuka to name just a few. Whether you are an experienced fisher or a beginner we will help you land your dinner or catch and release.
Whether you want to SCUBA or freedive Fiordland offers some of the best diving in the world. Discover ancient Black Coral trees at depths as shallow as 6 meters, or freedive for crayfish in sheltered waters beneath waterfalls. The MV Pembroke is regarded as one of the best vessels for diving in Fiordland with easy water level access and a fully enclosed rear deck.
Kayaking and Paddle Boarding
With numerous islands and coves throughout Fiordland, kayaking and paddle boarding is a great way to explore at your own pace. The Pembroke has 2 kayaks and 2 paddleboards onboard.
The bush in Southern Fiordland is home to large herds of Red Deer, contribute to local conservation efforts by heading out to bag one for yourself.
Follow in the footsteps of Captain James Cook and the early takata whenua, learn about the groundbreaking conservation efforts undertaken by Richard Henry that helped saved the Kakapo or recent efforts to establish some of the world's first predator free islands.
Once you are aboard MV Pembroke we will take care of everything for you, so you can sit back and enjoy world class scenery with a side of southern hospitality.
Best family holiday ever! Walked the Dusky Track from Lake Hauroko to Supper Cove and we were picked up by the Pembroke. We had it all! Sunshine, storm, rain - all fabulous. Fishing, diving, swimming and walking on Anchor Island. The seafood was amazing, Jacqui is the best cook and Craig is the best skipper. We had a ball, we can confirm Craig is unbeatable at Poker!
