About Doubtful Sound Overnight Cruises

Spend the night in the magic and silence of the vast Fiord, Doubtful Sound.  

Your journey begins with a cruise across picturesque Lake Manapouri, followed by a coach over Wilmot Pass, stopping to experience some of Fiordland’s densest rainforest. On reaching Deep Cove, you will board the iconic ‘Fiordland Navigator’ vessel to discover the hidden arms of Doubtful Sound.

Activities include wildlife viewing, kayaking, and exploring the shoreline in tender crafts with a specialist nature guide. A delicious three-course dinner and cooked continental breakfast are also prepared and served by an onboard chef.

This overnight cruise is the perfect escape to relax, refresh, and reconnect with nature.
