Thinking about Fiordland National Park now can make it hard to imagine that it was in fact where European history started for New Zealand some 250 years ago. Captain Cook sailed into Dusky Sound in 1773. His records of the seal numbers as well as charts which meant safe passage brought sealers and whalers to the area. Dusky Sound was home to cook and his crew for 6 weeks and although the native bush has reclaimed most there are still remains to be discovered if you know where to look. Although history is the focus there'll be plenty of time to kayak, hunt, free dive, fish, discover historic sites, paddle board, walk, birdwatch, relax in the hot tub as well as to get lost behind your camera - it's up to you.
