As the open air boat departs the historic wharf shed from the edge of the Okarito lagoon, you are instantly engaged in the sights and sounds of this idyllic corner of the West Coast of the South Island. Drift past the great white heron slowly stalking its prey , the royal spoonbills as they swish back and forth through the water sieving for food to the dapper pied stilts strutting amidst the tidal flats with the jaw dropping scenery of the towering Southern Alps.

From the open expanse of the lagoon, we travel further up into the narrow rainforest waterways, seek out orchids hanging from the ancient trees, listen to the call of bell birds and tuis, drifting quietly to a place back in time, immersed in a bounty of nature.
