Doubtful Sound Overnight Cruise

Get set to enjoy the ultimate Doubtful Sound experience with this overnight cruise in an unspoiled, unmatched and unforgettable place.

Start in Manapouri, a short distance from Te Anau, with a short cruise across Lake Manapouri. A coach then takes you across Wilmot Pass, travelling on a sub-alpine road through dense rainforest. At Deep Cove you’ll be met by your crew and your vessel.

With old world charm, modern comforts, spacious viewing decks, a dining saloon with a fully licensed bar and an observation lounge the small ship is perfect for purpose. Be prepared to see the pod of resident dolphins, fur seals or rare penguins. As you cruise through some of New Zealand’s most stunning scenery, the knowledgeable nature guides will provide commentary so you miss nothing.

After dropping anchor in a sheltered cove you choose how you enjoy this special place. Explore the shoreline by kayak or tender boat. Or simply relax onboard. For the adventurous — or very brave — there’s even a chance to go swimming. (All activities are weather dependent.)

In the evening, you’ll enjoy a delicious three-course buffet dinner prepared by our onboard chef and served in the dining saloon.
