Adam and George do just the most amazing job of making everyone feel welcome. They are truly great hosts. And such a beautiful boat. It was just a perfect relaxing afternoon on a beautiful lake in the awesome wilderness of Fiordland.

From the moment we hopped on, to the moment we got off we had an incredible time on Faith, the crew were amazing with the kids! George took us on a gentle walk to the hidden lake and sharing his knowledge of the plants in the area made it even more fascinating. The hidden lake was beautiful, we definitely could have chilled out there longer but needed to get back for morning tea which was delicious!! Adam showed the kids how to raise the sail, the crew truly are so good with kids. If you can only do one thing in Te Anau do this! Couldn't recommend highly enough.

Hey lovely family!! I’ll never forget this cruise, was so nice to realise that we’d hung out together in the past!! Very cool to share this experience with you, and hopefully we get to see you again this winter :-) We really love having kids onboard, and particularly enjoy seeing them wanting to join in, it’s pretty cool to see them getting into the spirit of the adventure!! Hope you’re all keeping well, see you soon!! Cheers, Adam, George, and the team from Faith in Fiordland :-)

This trip was one of the highlights of our time on the South Island. It was a stunning, but cold Te Anau day, but we were instantly warmed by the welcome aboard the lovely Faith. George and Adam endear themselves straight away as genuinely top blokes that love sharing The Faith and her rich history. They readily share stories and tales that The Faith has experienced in her time and bring alive what a storied life she and her passengers have had. This really is a wonderful experience to put on your travel calendar.

Hey!! What a lovely review!! It’s very special that you’ve taken a moment to write like this after cruising with us, but you write so eloquently that it’s quite a treat reading your words :-) We do love what we do, it hasn’t felt like work ever, and it really excites us to share what we love of our “working day” with you :-) It’s worked out pretty well for a crazy idea 7 years ago when searching for boats for sale on Trade Me!! Thank you again, we really appreciate your support and kind words. Cheers, Adam, George, and the team from Faith in Fiordland :-)

My daughter and I had the opportunity to sail on the Faith at the end of April. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this trip. We learnt about the history of Faith, took a walk to the Hidden Lake (learnt about the flora along the way) and were spoilt with a fabulous morning tea which catered to our dietary needs. I highly recommend this activity - one of the best experiences we have had.

Hi Nicky!! Lovely to hear from you!! We had so much fun with you both onboard with us!! Was pretty cool having plenty of room to spread out too!! :-) Really appreciate you taking time to share with others what you enjoyed, it's so much better than us broadcasting!! It's very thoughtful of you, and rather humbling to read your comments. Hope you're both doing well, looking forward to seeing you again next!! Thanks again, Adam, George, and the team at Faith in Fiordland :-)
