Full description
Your tour will begin when you arrive at the historic wharf of Lake Te Anau 5, where you'll be greeted by your crew and welcomed aboard “Faith”. You'll then receive a personalized briefing about safety onboard the ship and what to expect during the cruise.  Once onboard, you’ll be free to roam around and your crew will offer you a drink and a chat during the 40-minute journey to the Hidden Lakes wharf. During this time, you’ll learn about the history of your cruise ship, the vessel’s journey from Scotland in the 1980s and its Royal Navy service during WW2. Upon arrival at the Hidden Lakes, experience a guided walking tour of Fiordland National Park of roughly 45 minutes, and learn about the surrounding flora and fauna from your guide. Once back at the wharf, enjoy a selection of canapés and desserts in the calm of the cove. Finally, sit back and enjoy the journey home or visit the engine room to take a turn behind the wheel.

    A trip aboard Faith in Fiordland should be on everyone’s must do list when visiting Te Anau. We felt welcomed and spoilt right from our first step on board. The crew love their boat and their location and it shows. Learned so much and loved the informative walk to the hidden lakes. The drinks and food were a very special treat. Thank you Adam and George! Love it!

    It was great from start to finish. They are both very knowable about their Boat Faith, who is amazing, from where she actually came from in Scotland, and who owned her as well. It was wonderful to see around the whole of the Boat, even the engine room. Had a wonderful morning tea, the the coffee was real. The walk to the Hidden lake was great, it may of been raining but also very special, we even had fantails following us. This was the wonderful experience, and we both highly recommend this trip to anyone.

    This trip only takes a limited number out each time. You feel very welcomed and special. The boat has a lot of history and is a great way to glide along the water. The food and drinks where an added bonus. George and Adam are very knowledgeable and are just lovely. The guided walk is an added bonus. An easy walk and is very beautiful.
