Quiet, untouched and beautifully remote, Doubtful Sound is the perfect destination for an overnight cruise getaway, complete with superb wildlife-spotting opportunities
Expedition cruise | Mountains | Natural world
Escape the city energy of Queenstown for a night of tranquillity, spent on the pristine waters of Doubtful Sound. After a cruise over island-studded Lake Manapouri and a coach hop through dense, subalpine rainforest, you’ll board the Fiordland Navigator. Designed along the lines of a traditional scow sail ship, it blends old world charm with modern comforts. As you cruise through this remote fjord your guides will point out the penguins, fur seals and pod of dolphins that call the dramatic rocky crags and still waters home. You’ll also drop anchor in a sheltered cove for kayak or tender boat exploration. End the evening with a three course buffet dinner and chance to admire the night’s sky over a glass of local wine. Wake to a cooked breakfast and further fjord discovery before the return leg to Queenstown.
