Fiordland Yacht Charter

Your Guide to Yacht Charter in Fiordland

A Fiordland yacht charter vacation in New Zealand will be an experience unlike any other. It is a certainty that you will be awe inspired and deeply affected. Indeed, Rudyard Kipling described Fiordland as the ‘eighth wonder of the world’. Fiordland, which is home to the famous Milford and Doubtful Sounds is a natural wonder which is unrivaled anywhere. On your yacht charter you will be free to cruise around the inland protected waterways and experience Fiordland's 'unreal' landscapes which lift up almost horizontally out of the deep, calm and mystical waters. The only way to visit all the most amazing areas is by water, and a yacht charter is the best way to cruise with solitude and freedom. You are likely to see incredible wildlife which has been untouched by humans due to Fiordland's remoteness. The natural world still reigns supreme in Fiordland, and on your yacht charter vacation you are likely to meet many of the friendly local residents: bottlenose dolphins, fur seals, Fiordland's crested penguins, albatross, tuis, bellbirds, deer, and also many rare and unusual underwater creatures.

Fiordland is located on the remote south-west coast of the South Island of New Zealand. Fiordland is one of the most dramatic and beautiful parts of New Zealand and has accordingly achieved World Heritage status. Fiordland is often also often termed the Sightseeing and Walking Capital of the world.  You can cruise on a yacht charter vacation around the protected Milford, Doubtful, Dusky or Breaksea Sounds. The pristine forest, sheer rock walls and tumbling waterfalls are truly a breathtaking sight.

Milford Sound is perhaps the most famous of the Fiordland Sounds; probably because it is the only sound which is assessable by road. Milford Sound is approx 10 miles in length from its head to the Tasman ocean. Milford Sound  was carved out during successive ice ages and, at its deepest point off Mitre Peak, pictured above, plunges to a depth of 265 meters. The grandeur of Milford Sound can only really be properly appreciated from the air , tour boat, or a yacht charter vacation. Other features you can witness on a boat charter include Bowen Falls which hurtle 165 meters into the sea, and the Stirling Falls, further down the sound, set amidst the towering cliffs and dwarfed by Mitre Peak, are truly spectacular after rain. A fresh water layer that sits on top of the seawater which filters light to allow deep water dwelling sea-life to exist very close to the surface. A visit to the Underwater Observatory, or a guided dive, allows you access to sights which are rarely revealed to human visitors.
