Dusky Sound & Preservation Inlet

Dusky Sound (Tamatea) is the largest fiord but one of the least visited. Its remote location and hidden islands reveal a wealth of incredible scenery and native wildlife.

Preservation Inlet (Rakituma) is the southernmost fiord. Full of rich early European and Maori history, this is the true Fiordland – wild, remote and unspoiled.

At Fiordland Helicopters we offer scenic flights and packages that include both Dusky Sound and Preservation Inlet. Time spent in this magical destination will never be forgotten.
