RealNZ is offering 24 people a rare opportunity to explore wild Fiordland by boat while giving back to this special place. By partnering with the Department of Conservation (DOC), the trip offers the chance to combine a five-night (18 – 23 Dec 2021) cruise to Fiordland’s stunning Tamatea Dusky Sound with learning about and getting involved in the area’s history and conservation.
Scott McNab takes up the new position of chief marketing and digital officer at RealNZ next month. RealNZ is the new name of the well-established group of tourism and ski businesses offering memorable experiences with a vision - to create enduring value through conservation that is enabled by tourism.
Those who are vaccinated on the TSS Earnslaw in Queenstown between 7.30 and 11.00am as part of ‘Super Saturday’, will spend their ‘observation’ time enjoying a free barista coffee, before being offered an optional tour of the 109-year-old steamship – and a chance to spin a wheel for a ‘trip or treat’ on their way out.
This year’s Cruise-for-a-Cause (formerly Real Journeys Cruise-for-a-Cause) raised much-needed funds for the Deep Cove Outdoor Education Trust. The trust needs to complete urgent maintenance work to continue to offer its increasingly popular school camp at its Deep Cove Hostel in the heart of Fiordland.
$30,698 will help progress the Fiordland Trails Trust network of trails from Te Anau to Te Anau Downs, for non-motorised recreational activity, following Real Journeys pirate-themed Cruise-for-a-Cause.
