Food plays an integral role and is at the core of what Fiordland Charters offer. Daily adventures play out based on what your chef needs for the table, and you are in charge of the gathering. Kaimoana is abundant with a range of species on offer, Crayfish, Bluecod, Tarakihi, Hapuka, Butterfish, Moki, Mussels, Cockles and Pipi to name just a few. Sustainably caught and gathered by you, food miles become mere meters and ocean to table dining can happen in a matter of minutes.
We practice ‘Fish for a Feed’ which means we keep just enough for table and return the rest for another day. We love to share our vision for utilising as much of the fish as possible, and generously share tips and tricks to extend your catch across a variety of meals.
If seafood is not your thing, you will not go hungry. Where possible we source our fruit, veges, meat and stores locally, focusing on generous fresh meals served with a side of Southern hospitality.

"Your ‘nose to tail’ philosophy and sustainable fishing ethos is commendable. We have all come away with a lots to put into practice. And then the food! What can we say except….Exceptional!"
