Many voyages have a ‘ramble / trek / tramp’ focus with them and can be based here.

Paterson Inlet can be explored without having to be away tramping for days on end!  Walk the walk and then sit around in the comfort of Elwing’s saloon for the evening. Enjoy anchoring in a different bay every night and sailing to a new destination the next day for another walk / trek in the wilderness.

Visit Ulva Island and take the wilderness walks through the scenic/wildlife reserve . . . as DOC concessionaires at Stewart Island Elwing Discoveries can take you places most people can’t go! Come as an individual or organise a group of friends to join us. Six of you will be comfortable aboard Elwing.

Experience the Rakiura Track with Elwing Discoveries! Live aboard and then explore the track during the day. A group of only 6 is needed for this voyage – make enquiries, come as an individual or bring your group of 6 aboard Elwing.

Other Expeditions

How about sailing to the wild southern places of NZ that others can’t get to, then exploring and perhaps climbing seldom-climbed mountains?

Then come back to the warm conviviality of the ship in the evenings to eat, drink and relive the day’s experiences? . . Sound like your kind of trip?

Then we can help make your adventure come true! 

Or… do you have an ‘adventure dream’?

You supply the dream — we’ll supply the boat and know how.

Do you have KAYAKS wanting an expedition?  Your skipper is an adventurer himself and is right on your wavelength. He knows and can safely take you to wild places—to southern-most Stewart Island and beyond!

Just contact us and put your idea to us!
