Doubtful Sound Overnight Cruise

Overnight Cruise on Doubtful Sound, on the Fiordland Navigator

An overnight cruise amidst spectacular Doubtful Sound, is a ‘once in a lifetime’ experience. The cruise offers you a relaxing opportunity to explore the tranquil scenery and wildlife of Doubtful Sound, Fiordland's best kept secret. The Fiordland Navigator blends old world charm with modern comforts, and offers a delicious three course dinner and a fine selection of local and international wines.

On board the Navigator you'll cruise around different, secluded parts of the fiord, whilst knowledgeable nature guides provide commentary, ensuring you miss nothing; be it the pod of resident dolphins, fur seals or rare penguins. After dropping anchor in a sheltered cove, you can choose to explore the shoreline by kayak or tender boat or to simply relax onboard. For the more adventurous (or very brave), there’s even a chance to go swimming!

      What's The Rush?

      I’m not a triathlete, but I’m in decent shape and I’m not looking to experience a place just through a bus window. I’m happy to slow down on the trail, soak it in and breathe in the fresh air.

      Leg Stretcher

      Sure, I own some hiking boots, they’re even worn in, but they don’t go on long trips. I like my creature comforts and I like to give a range of activities a go.


    • ACTIVE 3

      Earn Your Lunch

      I stay active on vacation so that I can eat and drink what I like without feeling guilty. I season my trips with a little fresh exercise.


    • ACTIVE 4

      Challenge Accepted

      I’ll let my trusty guides sweat the small things, so I can focus on my goal. Getting to the top, reaching the end, achieving my dreams! Sure, it’ll be tough, but the views will be worth it.


    • ACTIVE 5

      The Ultimate

      I’ve put in the hard yards and now I get to reap the rewards. I’m a seasoned adventurer, not afraid to get my boots wet.

    If you're short on time and you'd like to experience some of New Zealand's Great Walks, this is the trip for you.

 

Awesome trip!

“Our trip through New Zealand was a combination of hiking and a cruise on the Doubtful Sound. Our guides, Ken and Mel, were wonderful. They were not only our hiking guides, but our chefs at the end of the day. Our meals were exquisite!”
