Doubtful Sound Overnight Cruise
Doubtful Sound Overnight Cruise

Cruising amidst Doubtful Sound’s towering peaks and bush clad islands is awe-inspiring.

Following a short cruise across beautiful Lake Manapouri and a coach trip over Wilmot Pass, you will board the Fiordland Navigator at Deep Cove, Doubtful Sound.

There is plenty of time on your overnight cruise to enjoy the stunning views and to discover the hidden arms of Doubtful Sound.  Fur seals and bottlenose dolphins are often seen and at times, rare penguins can be observed.  There is also time for you to kayak around the shoreline or go exploring in the tender craft with our nature guide.  As the shadows lengthen we’ll drop anchor at a favourite mooring for the night.  After the days activities, enjoy a delicious evening buffet meal in the spacious dining saloon. 

The Fiordland Navigator is purpose built for cruising in the fiords. The vessel 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.
