It's time to don your Captain’s hat and rule the crystal-clear waters of Southland. With a coastline that stretches 3,400 kilometres, the deepest lakes in the country and some of the best scenic seascapes in New Zealand, it's no wonder there are many water activities to do. One of these water activities is stepping on board a vessel and experiencing the region from the water. Experience the magnificence of Fiordland, with its clear waters, tumbling waterfalls and rare animals. Ferry across the Foveaux Strait to New Zealand's third island: Rakiura Stewart Island, and jump on board one of many charter boats to explore the island. From sunrise and sunset cruises to overnight cruises in the fiords and more, there is a cruise to suit every itinerary in Southland.
