The Boats

Fiordland Expeditions operate two vessels,

The Tutokos in Fiordland

The Tutokos in Fiordland



Tutoko II was purchased in 2009 to meet the new demands of a growing trend towards private facilities for the discerning guests whilst on board.

With four private cabins, two with own en suites, and a bunk-room that can accommodate up to six the Tutoko II is ideal for our overnight Cruise market or even for the more discerning travelers who want to charter the vessel for several nights.

She also has her own heli-pad which enables guests direct access to the vessel between Te Anau or even Queenstown and the ship.

Tutoko II also has her own dive compressor and tanks just in case divers want to explore the unique diving that can be found in Fiordland.

Tutoko II is warm and spacious and can comfortably cater for up to 12 guests with plenty of room to find your own quiet space if you wish.

The Tutoko is our original vessel and is in pristine condition for her age with many upgrades in recent years bringing her back to her former glory if not better.

Though retired from the overnight market due to her sole bunk-room accommodation option this vessel is entirely suitable for a group of friends who wish to charter her for any number of nights.

Tutoko was designed for the rigours of Fiordland and is a very warm and comfortable vessel with character that many repeat clients enjoy on their sojourns throughout Fiordland.

Ideal for groups of mates for a Fiordland fishing/diving/hunting trip or equally for a group of couples who want to explore this magic wonderland and see some of NZ’s early history whilst living off the sea.

Tutoko has had many successful charters over the years and she continues to be popular today.
