D’Urville Island is truly one of New Zealand’s best kept secrets. Discovered by French explorer Jules Dumont D’Urville, the island is located off the northern coast of the South Island with an area of approximately 150 square km making it the eighth-largest island of New Zealand.
Departing from Edenhouse, follow Tasman Bay’s eastern coast line to D’Urville Island for a spot of helicopter reef fishing. Fly with the catch to a sheltered bay to prepare the freshly caught fish accompanied by fresh local produce for a private dining experience like no other. With a cold craft beer or glass of local wine in hand, relax and enjoy the pristine beaches and native bush, you can even take a swim!
The return flight tracks via the Mt Richmond Forest Park with a mountain landing. If you love fresh produce and fine wines this is a special and unique Kiwi experience!
