By land, you'll be able to stop in the Eglington Valley and at the mouth of the Homer Tunnel.

Cruise down the south side of the fiord, past Bowen Falls, Sinbad Gully, the world-renowned Mitre Peak, Mt Pembroke, Bridal Veil Falls and Fairy Falls. If weather permits, cruise into the mouth of the fiord past Anita Bay, and head into the Tasman Sea for a glimpse of the West Coast, before returning into the sound. Venture up the north side of the fiord past Dale Point, the Piopiotahi Marine Reserve, Seal Rock, Stirling Falls, The Lion and the Cascade Range. After cruising, anchor at Harrison's Cove or Deepwater Cove for the night. There is then the opportunity to explore nearby in the on board sea kayaks, before returning to the boat for drinks and dinner.
