D’Urville Island is truly one of New Zealand’s best kept secrets.
Discovered by French explorer Jules Dumont D’Urville, the island is located off the northern coast of the South Island with an area of approximately 150 square km, making it the eighth-largest island of New Zealand. Departing Nelson or Blenheim we follow Tasman Bay’s eastern coast line before arriving on D’Urville Island for a spot of helicopter reef fishing.
If you love fresh food and fine wines this is the exclusive tour for you.
Once we have a decent catch we hop across to a sheltered bay where your freshly caught fish will be prepared alongside fresh local produce. With a glass of fine local wine or a cold craft beer in hand, relax and enjoy the pristine beaches and native bush, you can even take a swim! Our flight home tracks via the Mt Richmond Forest Park. If you love fresh food and fine wines this is the exclusive tour for you!
