Sit back, relax and revel in the natural wonders aboard a modern catamaran as you learn about the local history and geology of the area from your expert guide. Munch on a freshly prepared picnic lunch as you glide past magnificent waterfalls, mountain peaks, basking seals and even a rare Fiordland crested penguin if you're lucky. Afterwards, enjoy a change of pace as you embark on a 60 minute guided kayak adventure that visits a tranquil, secluded cave. Finish the afternoon with a visit to New Zealand’s only floating underwater observatory.
