Fiordland Helicopters continually aim to provide a high level of customer service and satisfaction, doing the best we can to showcase the Fiordland we know to visitors in a safe, friendly, personal way.  After joining Lex & Shirley at Te Anau’s Luxmore Jet  recently on the Jetboat & guided walk section of the ‘ Kepler Combo’,  we know this high level of service is consistent throughout the whole KEPLER COMBO –  HELI-JET-HIKE experience.  What an awesome trip!

Lex & Shirley are wonderful hosts who share their local knowledge of the area with that great friendly spirit that Southlanders are becoming known for all over the world.  They were sheep farmers for many years before their passion for the Fiordland National Park, boating, fishing and hiking lured them to the Te Anau Manapouri area, launching the Luxmore Jet in 2003.

The whole experience is taken care of for you in a friendly & personal way .  Lex effortlessly guides the boat through the unspoiled World Heritage Area and chats to clients with ease about local history, culture and wildlife.  Shirley is an experienced nature guide, and accompanies clients on the hike along a portion of the Kepler Track, sharing her vast knowledge of the flora & fauna and the Fiordland National Park; a place she fondly refers to as ‘Mother Nature’s Garden’.  In real kiwi style, Shirley pours you a good hot ‘cuppa’ along the way.


Any combination of HELI-JET-HIKE  is possible… You can HELI-HIKE, HELI-JET, OR JET-HIKE, and the combination is available with any Fiordland Helicopters scenic flight.

It is one of the most family friendly Fiordland experiences you will find.
