  • Commentary by our knowledgeable onboard nature guide
  • Wildlife viewing, including dolphins, fur seals and even occasionally penguins
  • Cruise across Lake Manapouri

Sit back, relax and soak up the scenery as we leave the hustle and bustle of Queenstown behind and venture deep into the Fiordland National Park.

Upon arrival in Manapouri, we will board our first vessel and cruise across the beautiful waterways of the lake towards the West Arm.

Guests will then board a coach to experience a scenic trip with photo opportunities over the epic Wilmot Pass, journeying through Fiordland’s majestic rainforest and into the sound.

Upon arrival at the sound, our friendly crew will welcome you onboard our purpose built catamaran the Patea Explorer.

Throughout the enchanting cruise of Doubtful Sound, you will be mesmerized by this vast fiord with its rugged peaks, lush rainforest, and beautiful hidden inlets.

Our experienced nature guides will share with you the knowledge and history of the fiord throughout the journey and highlight the local wildlife we may encounter such as dolphins and fur seals.

Join us and immerse yourself in nature and the sheer beauty and isolation of the pristine Doubtful Sound.
