Iris and Cooks Stumps

For those interested in New Zealand’s 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 won’t expect you to changeRecumbent Chimney, Preservation Inlet 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 Kaipipi Shipyards Otago fruit, all prepared in a modern galley.
