Matt and Alina are relatively new to Stewart Island, but are strongly tied to it with a family history of two generations of fisherman. Matt grew up on the Island, and the family has maintained a strong presence there with a family holiday home and frequent trips to this unique place. Matt has now returned to his childhood playground after 14 years working in nautical tourism in the Abel Tasman National Park. German born, Alina migrated from Australia in 2005, and has a diverse background in Fisheries conservation, wetland habitat management, luxury accommodation and tourism. Alina currently resides as a Trustee on the board of the local Rakiura Community & Environment Trust (SIRCET).
