We are all learning a new way of life with Covid-19 in our communities. We have a few measures in place  as we transition to a new norm and hopefully be out in the wild Covid free! 


The Covid-19 situation is ever-changing, and we are guided by our national authorities including the Ministry of Health, to ensure that we provide the safest means of operating within the current protection frameworks. Now that the traffic light system is no longer in place here in New Zealand we are in principle no longer requiring pre departure RAT (Rapid Antigen Testing).  


At Wild Fiordland, our highest priority is the safety and wellbeing of all our guests, crew and community  We are a small business and rely on everyone doing their part.


  • We highly recommend that you carry out a RAT prior to departure and respectfully ask that you stay home should you test positive or are unwell. 

  • You may be asked by staff and crew to undertake a supervised RAT either prior to departure or during adventure should the crew and staff deem it appropriate. 

  • Should you test positive onboard you will be flown out at your cost. Therefore it is highly recommended that you take out travel insurance to cover you in the instance of having to cancel or cut short your adventure due to illness. Normal terms and conditions will apply and no refunds will be available so travel insurance is a simple solution for peace of mind.


  • All operations have daily cleaning schedules in place.  

  • Hand sanitizer is available and use is encouraged. All guests are expected to maintain a high level of personal hygiene for the duration of their stay.

  • Regular staff meetings to ensure up-to-date understanding and knowledge of the most current guidelines and safe operating practices.

  • Asking any staff or guests who are feeling unwell to please stay at home and seek medical advice via Healthline or their GP. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please get in touch with us. We acknowledge this unusual times and we encourage guests that foresee any issues to contact us as early as possible so that we have the time to work constructively through a solution together.
