Discover the unspoilt and remote wilderness of Doubtful Sound during this unique overnight cruise on board the Fiordland Navigator.

Following a boat transfer across Lake Manapouri and coach over Wilmot Pass, join us aboard the Fiordland Navigator for a cruise around the hidden arms of Doubtful Sound. Designed along the lines of a traditional scow, the Navigator blends old world charm with modern comforts that include; spacious viewing decks and an observation lounge, a dining saloon with a fully licensed bar, and private cabins with ensuite bathrooms or quad-share bunk-style compartments for your one night’s stay.

As you cruise through some of New Zealand’s most stunning scenery, our knowledgeable nature guides will provide commentary ensuring you don't miss a thing; be it the pod of resident dolphins, the colony of fur seals or the rare penguins you might encounter. After dropping anchor in a sheltered cove, you can choose to explore the shoreline by kayak or tender boat – or to simply relax on board. For the adventurous, there’s even a chance to go swimming. Enjoy a delicious three-course buffet dinner prepared by our on-board chef and kick off the next day with a hearty cooked breakfast, before setting out to explore the fiords some more.

Doubtful Sound is unspoiled, unmatched and unforgettable. So come create some lifelong memories with us.

Note: Daily Queenstown and Te Anau coach connections are available at extra cost.
