Kiaora, my name is Jeremaia Fisk. I am based in Queenstown and have worked as a professional Guide for the past 20 years. Born in the Hawke’s Bay, on our Northern Island I grew up as an enthusiastic young Boy Scout, which lead to my passion for the outdoors and looking after people in New Zealand’s backcountry.
Moving to the South Island in 1997 I have been extensively involved in the Queenstown tourism industry as a heliski guide, climbing instructor, private guide, vineyard manager & travel curator. Since 2002 I have been coordinating exceptional experiences for clients, privately and for leading inbound travel agencies through my business South Island Guides. My skills and experience in the local region, especially my network of contacts, knowledge of terrain and local weather patterns will be an immense benefit to you or your clients visit to our shores. I am enigmatic, down to earth, improvise like MacGyver and thrive to be active and inspire. Whether or not we are going Hiking, Skiing, Wine tasting or exploring, keeping you and your family safe, inspired and entertained is my vocation.
My relevant guiding qualifications include: - New Zealand Mountain Guides Association (NZMGA), - Avalanche Management, - Pre Hospital Emergency Care First Responder (PHEC), - New Zealand Surfing Coach Association (NZSCIA) - New Zealand Outdoor Instructors Association (NZOIA, awards in Rock, Alpine, Kayak & Wilderness First Aid) - NZ Paragliding & Hang-gliding Association (NZPHGA), Member of the Alpine Cliff Rescue team (LANDSAR) and I hold a Class 1 Passenger Endorsement License.
Adding to my professional guiding & outdoor instruction certifications, I also spend my time working in our local wine, events, film and television industries. I have restored a neglected 40 acre vineyard and been involved on various films and commercials including ‘Lord Of the Rings’, “The Vertical Limit” and “Adventure Central”. After many years of designing and implementing unique experiences including tailored adventure vacations, bespoke events, creative corporate incentives and start up business development my diverse knowledge of our Kiwi way of life, history, local geology, adventure activities and wine & food will keep you entertained for days out in the hills or around the dining table!
I hope you will be the next adventure and look forward to hearing from you soon!
