    If price is an issue, don't go to the Maori blocks. DOC blocks are free.

    I'm headed down to Lords river soon and charter operators have put their prices up due to gas. Mana used to be $4k to that area, it's now $4.4k, Aurora was $4.2k from memory, not sure what they are now.

    Mana have max 8-10 persons, which may be the decider for Mana vs Aurora for you, otherwise they are much of a muchness - both offer dinghy and outboard hire, Mana is a slower / older boat. The water taxi guys in Oban don't got that far south.
    Thanks for all that information. It confirms what I thought I was seeing about the water taxi guys in Oban.

    Yep, North Tiko is DOC, south Tiko is Maori block. Its too dear to go to South Tiko with the boat cost on top
