Explore Historic Stewart Island & Fiordland
Visit Historic Stewart Island and Fiordland under sail. From Astronomers Point in Dusky Sound to the gold mines of Preservation Inlet and the old settlement sites around Stewart Island "Talisker" offers the romance of sail with the convenience of a modern comfortable cruising yacht.
For those interested in New Zealands rich heritage Fiordland and Stewart Island are two of the most interesting but least accessible areas of New Zealand. With European involvement dating back to 1773 when James Cook established an observatory in Dusky Sound and a small but important Maori presence for centuries before, there is much to see and observe. Aboard "Talisker" you will visit areas that have changed little in several hundred years. And while we wont expect you to change sail up the main mast in a sou-west gale you will be able to experience the thrill of sailing into bays and harbours and dropping anchor as the explorers and sealers did so long ago. Nor will you be eating "salt horse and hard tack". We specialise in southern seafood and locally grown vegetables and Central Otago fruit, all prepared in a modern galley.
