Fiordland Pilot Services

Port Otago Limited takes its cruise ship responsibilities seriously. It has established an independent company (Fiordland Pilot Services Limited) to provide guaranteed professional pilot services to the industry in Fiordland. This was in direct response to a Maritime New Zealand risk assessment that identified the navigational hazards presented by Fiordland’s weather extremes and remote location. Fiordland Pilot Services has fully qualified Fiordland pilots and a comprehensive training programme. It was the first pilotage company operating in the Fiordland area that had a fully endorsed training manual and operating procedures.
