if you want to go to the auckland islands leave from invercagill & from there to stewart island,probably into port pegasus.fish for sea salmon or blue cod.
from there on to the snares,& on the west side you will find a neat little cove with almost full protection. you wont get sleep bEcause of the sealions 7 PENGUINS.
To go to the aucklands go down on a nw,back on a sw,this will give you a quartering sea. enjoy the spinner dolphins,watch the north & south traps-reefs.
the problem is that there is only one chart & its not a large scale,those dots are not fly ****.sandy bay in enderby island is good shelter other wise go into the main harbour.dont be temted by the small fjords on the way-terrific katabatic winds,you can get out the other end of the harbour by the victoria passage but at times there is an eight knot current.
the aucklands are awe-inspiring,like visiting the grand canyon!
