Glen and Marion have always held a strong passion for the ocean, and have spent most of both their personal and professional lives working and exploring on and in the sea.  We became involved in the business because of its feel go factor, when you see the profound effect nature has on people you know it's an amazing experience.  We hope to educate people about the bird & sea life in the Marlborough sounds and emphasis the importance of rare species such as the Okarito Kiwi, South Island Saddle backs, King shag and Hector dolphins.
