Historic Fiordland Tours
Take a short break and join us for a cruise around some of New Zealand’s oldest historic sites in Fiordland on the Tutoko II.
Capt. Cook first sailed past here in 1771 and ever since then europeans have come to these shores to explore.
Fiordland hosted some of the first industries in New Zealand and our largest town in 1883 was Cromarty, with approx. 3,000 people involved in many industries such as gold mining, coal mining, timber milling, whaling & sealing all based in Preservation Inlet
We’ll be visiting:
- Cook’s ‘Astronomer Point’ where Capt. James Cook spent 32 days in 1772
- Richard Henry’s ‘Pigeon Isle where the first Kakapo & Kiwi conservation took place from 1893
- ‘Tawera Silver Mine’ in Isthmus Sound
- Cromarty Township the first city of New Zealand
- Puysegur Point Light-house
- Luncheon Cove where cook dined on lobster and is also the site of the first house and first boat to be built in New Zealand
You can also catch you dinner whilst fishing in New Zealand’s most isolated fishery or take a dive with the crew and collect some lobster for the table. Or is you prefer you can head off in one of our kayaks for that up-close personal experience.
With a maximum of 10 on each trip this is a small boat intimate experience. So get some mates together or come meet new friends.
We’ll be running these trips on demand so call us today and we’ll discuss your next trip to Historic Fiordland.
