Welcome to Fiordland aboard the
charter boat MV Pembroke

To visit the "last place on earth" is something few will ever experience.
Whatever it is that takes you there, Dusky and Breaksea Sounds are about as far away as you can
get.

Unchanged since Maori and European history began, these fiords are wonderfully inspirational in their awe-inspiring tectonic geography, solitude and unique pristine marine environment. The Fiords enjoy a surprisingly temperate micro-climate

Fiordland, on-board the charter boat MV Pembroke, is one of the truly great New Zealand experiences. Follow the "recent" footsteps of Captain James Cook, Ngati Moemoe and Ngai Tahu, exploring the remote beauty of the precipitous valley walls, hanging valleys, moss laden and brooding, glacial carved fiords, with a myriad of misty waterfalls cascading thousands of feet, one can delight in everything that is natural and unspoiled. Listen to the glorious, multitude of bird calls, marvel at the friendly playfulness of the 'Bottlenose and Dusky Dolphins' or visit the baby seals that live up in the bush.

Underwater, the fiords offer world-best diving - layers of fresh water create a unique micro-environment where sea-creatures and black coral are seen in much shallower water than usual.

The view from Astronomer's Point at Pickersgill Harbour, (where Cook moored the Resolution in 1773) to the head of Dusky Sound, some 35 kilometres away, is rapidly becoming one of New Zealand's iconic views
.
The MV Pembroke offers only a few the chance to experience something special. And perhaps the best for last, the abundance of sea-food (kai) for the table - bluecod and groper abound (or tuna offshore), for divers, crayfish and scallops and for the kids with their snorkels - paua and mussels.

On shore, red deer and the odd trout offer challenges for those inclined (and fit enough!).

Enjoy the finest, freshest seafood banquets with menus designed by our on-board chef, but note that the MV Pembroke has an environmentally sustainable policy of leaving plenty for the next visitors.
