Fishing, Hunting, Diving - Exclusive Multiday Cruises

Fiordland boasts some of the most spectacular fishing, hunting and diving in New Zealand.

Fiordland Jewel offers private six-day, five-night fishing, hunting and diving charters in the fiords and the Tasman Sea. Depending on the journey, we start in Doubtful Sound and travel down the coast to Dusky Sound or Preservation Inlet, where, at the end of your charter, a helicopter will take you back to Te Anau. We also do the reverse – i.e; Helicopter in from Te Anau to Dusky Sound, and travel up the coast to Doubtful Sound.

Please note we also have Fishing, Diving and Hunting Charters open to the public, where you can book a cabin, or bed, rather than the entire vessel.


Each year Fiordland Discovery provides two seasons of luxury Fishing, Diving, Hunting and Scenic charters each year

Season One: 1 April to 30 June (NZ Autumn, Winter)
Season Two: 1 September to 31 October (NZ Spring)
