A Kayaking Trip 2012

“In June 2012 a group of nine sea kayakers spent a week in Dusky Sound on the Tutuko I. This boat, and being with Fiordland Expeditions, was the perfect way to explore Dusky. The kayaks were unloaded and loaded each day with ease and having the boat gave us a great base to go from each day and enabled us to see a lot more of Dusky than if we had just been in our kayaks and camping on the shore.

Our crew Sean and Jen did a fantastic job of looking after us, taking us to all the good spots, imparting local knowledge and serving up the most beautiful meals of crayfish, blue cod, paua, mussels and venison.

The Tutuko I was small but cosy and perfect for us as a group of friends. So, all in all, the combination of great scenery and paddling, the perfect crew, sumptuous meals, and a cosy boat made for what all of us agreed was the best holiday we have ever had. We would totally recommend this to anyone. Thanks again and we look forward to our next trip”
