We were on the Inaugural flight from Te Anau direct to the Chatham Islands.
There were 40 people in our group which I understand is the biggest tour party ever to have visited the Island.
I can not find or think of words that would express our well being when we left for home.
Manger Val Croon and his lovely sister Toni, along with their staff have truly left a mark in or memories for ever.
Leaving early in the mornings they guided us to places we could only dream about and upon arrival out would come a fantastic meal from nowhere. Before long we were off to the next place of interest. A visit to Admiral Farm was a special treat. Meals / drinks oh what a time getting back to the Hotel well after dark.
The fishing was superb as were the paua which we caught reaching our limit in short time. The seals, bird life, infact everything was a life time experience.
I reckon we must have travelled in excess of 400 kilometers with a laugh every minute. Toni you are the most.
We would all like to pass on our gratitude for the wonderful hospitality and we are all coming back next year.
We all have two thumbs so here too “80 thumbs up”
