What to expect
  • You’ll arrive at the historic wharf on the edge of Lake Te Anau at 8.55am for a 9am departure. You’ll be met by your crew who will give you a safety briefing, and an order of events for your cruise. The crew will cast off and give you time to explore the ship. You’ll be offered tea and coffee once under way, and either have a chance to chat with crew, or enjoy time to yourself. You’ll have some amazing photo opportunities at all times, especially as you enter the South Fiord of Lake Te Anau. You’ll dock on the Hidden Lakes wharf and have your nature guide take you for a 15-minute walk into the first of the Hidden Lakes. This is another wonderful place for photos. It’s an easy walk with no hills on the track. It’s a leafy trail, so you’ll want to have comfortable footwear. Upon return to the "Faith" you`ll have your morning tea and refreshments served, and time to relax and listen to the sounds of nature with the engine turned off. As you cruise out of the South Fiord your crew will raise the sails if the wind allows, and cruise back to Te Anau with the special feeling of big sails billowing above you. Upon return you’ll be accompanied back down the wharf to shore by your crew. At all times our intent is to be relaxed and allow you the flexibility of choosing to focus on the "chapters" of the experience which give you the most pleasure. We aim to return at 12 noon.

A must do experience.
May 2021
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 :-)

Unmissable experience aboard a grand old lady
Mar 2021 • Couples
I wish I could give this experience six stars! It was an absolutely wonderful morning aboard the beautiful Faith, watching the sun break through the cloud cover as we cruised across beautiful Lake Te Anau. Our bush walk to the Hidden Lake was a real highlight - just stunning. Gorgeous morning tea and a glass of bubbles on the deck on our return trip. George is a kind and gracious host and a true gentleman and his passion for this amazing part of the world is contagious. I can’t recommend a cruise on Faith enough. Warm wishes to the Faith and her crew, Lisa and Chris.

Hey!! Thank you for sharing such a lovely review with us - I’ll be sure to make sure George sees this one :-) We’re so spoilt to enjoy such a beautiful region, but personalities like George’s really bring the experience to light don’t they?!! We’re on the water at the moment, and I’m watching the sun break through the cloud cover cover again, it’s a special time of the year!! So happy that you had a lovely time with us, it’s very thoughtful of you to write like you have, very much appreciated :-) Wishing you all the very best for your next adventures, hopefully we get to see you again some time!! Adam, George, Maree, and the team from Faith in Fiordland :-)

An experience to be repeated
Feb 2021
This is something I would repeat immediately again! Due to the covid situation here in NZ we were the only guests for the evening cruise. George and Adam were great hosts, explaining the history and the condition of the boat and pointing out the area. They were supoer friendly and we enjoyed this a lot.

Just returned from a morning trip on the MY Faith. Fascinating time on Lake Te Anau on a blustery day. George and Adam, appropriately attired, are great hosts and the trip was a memorable one.

Hey!! Thank you :-) It’s always a bit of a treat to read what you’ve enjoyed while being in the National Park with us. We llove what we do, and truly enjoying showing you our “backyard”, but it’s always nice to hear an impartial pat on the back :-) Hope you have a few new adventures planned, see you when you’re in town next!!

Hi!! Thanks for taking time to leave your review, you’re awesome!! We’re onboard right now cruising to the Hidden Lakes with a special little group of 3 passengers with us. Very lucky to be supported at the moment with Kiwi’s travelling, feeling very grateful for this lifeline with the borders closed. Thank you very much for your support and kind words, it means the world to us - in sentiment as much as in practicality. Thanks again, Adam, George, and the team from Faith in Fiordland :-)

What an amazing experience. Both George and Adam were filled with knowledge and gave great commentary about the boat and the area toured. The scenic walk was stunning and a really neat way to see the untouched beauty that is NZ. Such hospitable hosts, lovely morning tea and George makes the absolute BEST cup of tea. Thank you for our time, a must do for anyone visiting!

This was one of our favorite days in New Zealand - the staff aboard made the tour personal and were so amazing sharing their piece of paradise. You were treated like a friend aboard the boat.
The afternoon tea we enjoyed was so delicious and there was lovely wine to accompany it.
Nothing was too much trouble - we loved the tour of the engine room and the guided walk through the forest
