Discover a little-known part of Stewart Island’s fascinating history: between 1923 and 1933 the Ross Sea Whaling Company of Norway made 9 expeditions to Antarctica while using a base in Paterson Inlet. The ‘Whaler’s Base’ was used to repair the whale chasers in between seasons. 

Enjoy your skipper’s fascinating commentary including our on-board photographic guides, and explore the relics still to be seen at the base, with an optional walk through to the beautiful Millar's Beach. Contact us now to book!
