Doubtful Sound

Doubtful Sound

Immerse yourself in Doubtful Sound’s breathtaking beauty, towering peaks and bush clad islands with an overnight cruise.

Following a short cruise across island-studded  Lake Manapouri and a coach trip on the remote sub-alpine route over Wilmot Pass,  you will board the Fiordland Navigator at Deep Cove.

There is plenty of time on your overnight cruise to soak up the stunning surrounds  and to discover the hidden arms of Doubtful Sound – Hall, Crooked and First.   Bottlenose dolphins often ride our bow waves, fur seals bask on the rocks and, at times, rare penguins make an appearance. We anchor at a chosen mooring for the night giving you the opportunity to kayak around the shoreline, go exploring in the tender craft with our nature guide or simply relax on deck. A sumptuous three-course buffet is served in the evening showcasing some of the region’s finest produce.

The Fiordland Navigator is purpose built for cruising in the fiords and offers spacious viewing decks, a comfortable dining saloon/fully licensed bar and observation lounge.  You have the choice of private cabins with ensuite bathrooms or shared bunk-style accommodation.
