About Dusky Sound

As you glide into the still waters of New Zealand's largest fiord you'll be gazing upon the exact same sight as Captain Cook witnessed over 240 years before you when he discovered Dusky Sound (or Dusky Bay as he named it) for the first time. Cook returned here in 1773 (three years after his initial discovery) to spend time observing the wildlife which had so impressed him on his first visit. It was the diverse birdlife that inspired the place names that he created —Shag River; Seal Rock; Curlew, Shag, Petrel, Seal, Pigeon, and Parrot Isles; Goose, Duck, and Woodhen Coves. Its remote location has ensured that Dusky Sound remains wonderfully unspoilt and it's therefore still the perfect spot to see a wonderful array of bird and sea life and you'll have the very best view from your ship as you gently make your way deeper into the sound.
