Sir Alan Mark Hitches a Ride on Fiordland Jet

A while back a boat full of lucky (and totally unsuspecting) customers got a very special Fiordland Jet Boat trip complete with commentary by Emeritus Professor Sir Alan Mark. With a distinguished career in ecology research and advocacy, Alan is best known in Fiordland for his leading role in the fight to preserve Lakes Te Anau and Manapouri.

After the visit Phil Hoskin, the Ranger at Moturau Hut on the Kepler track wrote FJet:


Dear Nathan and staff,

I would like to express my appreciation to Fiordland Jets for transporting Alan and Pat Mark to and from Moturau Hut. I am sure that you know of Alan's deep and long-term involvement in preserving the ecological values of our lakes. It was a huge privilege and pleasure as well being very informative for me to host Alan and Pat.

Thanks for your important contribution.




Alan will be back in Te Anau for Waitangi Day (February 6th) to speak at the DOC Visitor Centre at 7:30pm. Come learn heaps about this amazing area and what it took and will take to 'Save Fiordland.'

 You can bet the FJet staff will be there! Will you?
