Explore Fiordland Extensively

Daily excursions from MV Tasman Explorer are made aboard Whaly, the tender. It is well suited to handling the weather conditions of the Fiordland waters, which can change quickly, and have comfortable, stable seating. This tender is ideal for exploring rocky inlets due to its manoeuvrability and easy handling.

The seating design gives added safety and security because you are sitting ‘inside’ the boat rather than sitting on top of the pontoons as per an inflatable boat.
