Travel with us to this untouched world deep in the heart of Fiordland National Park. The beauty and vastness of Doubtful Sound will take your breath away as you experience its wilderness.

Your day begins in Manapouri with a cruise across the picturesque Lake Manapouri, followed by a trip across New Zealand's most expensive road over Wilmot Pass, pausing along the way to experience the dense Fiordland rainforest and view Doubtful Sound far below.

Whilst cruising this pristine fiord, our friendly nature guides will share their passion for the region through their commentary. They will answer questions and provide you with information about the varied wildlife you may encounter like dolphins, fur seals and the rare Fiordland crested penguin.

This cruise is suitable for all ages and departs Manapouri all year round, with coach connections available (at extra cost) from Queenstown. Delicious lunch options are also available from the RealNZ Manapouri Café.
