Southern Secret Doubtful Sound Overnight Cruises
For one night and two days, escape into the wilderness to discover Doubtful Sound, experience New Zealand wilderness at its very best.
Begin your unforgettable "Journey of Discovery" in Lake Te Anau, travel a short distance to Manapouri and pass forested mountains on beautiful Lake Manapouri. From West Arm, we travel deep in Fiordland, over the Wilmot Pass and into the isolation and silence of Doubtful Sound, Fiordland.
Carved by glaciers over thousands of years, the deep waters of Doubtful Sound are often calm and protected by tall mountains.
While marvelling at the incredible scenery, look for dolphins, seals and penguins.
Your crew will bait and check “pots” to capture Fiordland Lobster and select suitable locations to try your luck fishing for Blue Cod or Sea Perch to complement the evening meal or enjoy a Kayak with your fellow passengers to experience the Fiord from water level.
Taste New Zealand food and relax as our team prepares your meals and shows you around our taonga, the treasure of Doubtful Sound.

- Transport from Pearl Harbour, Manapouri
