As Pelorus Mail Boat's manager, Bindy spends as much time out on the water as she does in the office, and says her favourite part of the job is the people she gets to meet.
Candice is the friendly face who greets visitors at the Pelorus Mail Boat office, and the voice on the end of the phone when they book.
Levon enjoys getting out on the water in Pelorus Sound/Te Hoiere, which is sparsely populated and quieter than Queen Charlotte Sound/Tōtaranui.
Tiria is the deckhand on the Pelorus Mail Boat, in charge of handing over the mail and other supplies to residents of Pelorus Sound/Te Hoiere.
WHAT A DAY!
A comfortable ship, a calm fine day, beautiful scenery, Dolphin, penguins, seals (one gave us a lesson on how to eat a fish), Sting Rays, King Shags, Spotted Shags, Royal Spoon Bills and a whole lot of other birds. Salmon farms, mussel farms, old beef, sheep and dairy farms, homes, holiday houses, lodges, Airbnb’s, campgrounds, walking tracks, ship recycling bays, old boats, new boats and dynamite!
All of this was tied together by Bindy & Levon’s excellent commentary. No plastic voice, cue card story here. Bindy’s local knowledge and enthusiasm was refreshing, informative & entertaining. Thank you for a memorable day.
