Steve Gurney and Steve Moffatt are good friends and very accomplished adventures.

Together they have achieved some remarkable feats, following in the footsteps of early explorers, most notably Mr Moffatt's great uncle George Park.

In 1890, Mr Park and his brother became the first Europeans to canoe Cook Strait.

And yesterday, Mr Moffat and Mr Gurney sailed and paddled the same route, in an exact replica of the original vessel.

Jendy Harper and Campbell Live cameramen Billy Weepu and Christie Douglas saw them off and welcomed them in.

Watch the full report.
