Pete and Takutai Beech are acknowledged as the guardians of the Marlborough Sounds. Their empathy with and knowledge of the environment are very deep. And their lives stand testament to their fine ethics. In basic terms, no one knows more about the wildlife in this area. With Pete and Takutai, we don't present a gin palace and waitress service - this is a down-to-earth honest New Zealand experience on an old, loved launch, custom built for the area.
