Your Hosts

Bernadette (Bernie) & Brent have built Flowerpot Bay Lodge over the last few years and have operated the Pitt Island Day Tour since 2006. The Lodge opened for its first guests in 2013. Our aim is to share the wonders of Pitt Island and the experience of remote Island life with everyone.

Brent has a back ground in building services design and training and is originally from Canterbury. Brent first visited Pitt Island in 2002, when he met Bernie.

Bernie is a 5th generation Pitt Islander, she has lived on the Island most of her life with short stints in Christchurch. Unbeknown to each other Bernie and Brent lived in the same town and used to frequent the same Café/Wine Bar many years before.
