Southern Wilderness NZ (and sub-brand Adventure Guides) is owned and operated by Steve Gibbons and Juliet Jordan, New Zealanders with a passion for the outdoors. We still enjoy the luxury of taking many trips ourselves, offering a truly personalized service.
Steadfast Traditional Sail
Steadfast Traditional Sail offers day and extended sailing adventures on board Steadfast, a 60' French pilot cutter. Delicious meals are served from the galley with a complimentary glass of wine.
Sitting at the top of New Zealand’s South Island, the Nelson and Marlborough area is like no other.
With the Marlborough Sounds, a giant maze of deep waterways that forge inland for almost 40km, the rugged mountainous ridges and snow-capped peaks of Mount Richmond Forest Park and some of the most spectacular coastal walkways in the world belonging to Abel Tasman National Park.
Here a friendly artisan culture creates confident and uncluttered cuisine.
The area is also New Zealand’s largest wine growing region and the home of world-renowned sauvignon blanc.
The gateway to the North Island via the Interislander and Bluebridge ferrys.
