Kia Ora Pete and Takutai

We want to thank you once again for a magic day aboard Tutanekai. Our third. It has become an absolutely predictable pleasure. Each time, new adventures; but each time also a growing friendship.

Yours is a unique service. We have taken many tours over the years, most of them on water, here in New Zealand. With most, you feel like a tourist; they are large group experiences. With you it is different. It is a day with new friends. Your boat has it's own fascinating history, and charm. You and Takutai offer an amazing knowledge of the Sounds, and offer it throughout the day as part of an ongoing conversation, as opposed to announcements over a PA system as is necessary with the larger group tours. Your personal connections to the Sounds history and culture is unique.

All the best to you both, we look forward to our next encounter.

Nick and Karen

Takutai and Peter

THANK YOU! For your warm hospitality a most incredible tour of the Sounds, and for us. For me, being with you for three days accomplished the last and maybe most important goal of this trip; really get to know some local people. Touring didn't allow us to do that.

I will take home the adventures of the past three days, and the story of Takutai and Pete, as well as the story of Tutanekai and Hinemoa! You two are worthy of your very own legends. It's been a pleasure to meet you.



“We really did enjoy our day trip out with you into the sounds and to the two islands…a very memorable part of our holiday to NZ.

“Thankyou once again for a magical day and more power to your elbow in trying to maintain and improve the Sounds our very best.”

Regards David and Caroline (England)
