Over 700 Islands to explore
The Tamatea/Dusky Archipelago is a sheltered haven tucked away from the wild Fiordland coastline. Made up of Te Puaitaha/Breaksea Sound, the inland Acheron Passage, Wet Jacket Arm and Tamatea/Dusky itself, there are over 700 captivating islands to explore.
This is your playground for endless exploration.
Sailing these waters for over 20 years
We like to compare our vessel the MV Pembroke to a floating kiwi holiday home with the added bonus of revolving scenery. Our boat is warm, comfortable and spacious with plenty of room to relax or play.
Whether you opt for exploration, diving, fishing, kayaking, hunting, hiking, or simply unwinding, the MV Pembroke has been adapted to take absolute advantage of these opportunities in Fiordland. Our expeditions are tailored to match your preferred pace, ensuring you get the most out of your experience
When is the best time to visit Fiordland?
We think any day is a good day to be in Fiordland, whether there are bluebird sunny days or you are experiencing a true Fiordland rainstorm the weather is all part of the adventure.
We run our charters from September through until June, during spring the fiords are full of wildlife returning to the area to rest up and breed following winter. In summer the days are long with the sun setting as late as 10.30pm, meaning plenty of time to explore. Autumn is typically associated with the deer rut and hunters come from far and wide to hunt Red Stags in the roar.
Get me on the boat!

"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!"
