Overview

On a Fiordland Navigator overnight cruise you can absorb yourself in the amazing magnificence of Doubtful Sound. Depart from Te Anau by coach, before your Doubtful Sound Overnight Cruise commences with a short ferry trip across Lake Manapouri, followed by a coach journey over Wilmot Pass. You will then head down into Doubtful Sound to meet up with the waiting crew of the Fiordland Navigator at Deep Cove.

Planned like a traditional sailing craft, the Fiordland Navigator merges the allure of former times with all the modern comforts of present days; including spacious viewing decks, a dining saloon with fully licensed bar, as well as an observation lounge. You will cruise the full length of Doubtful Sound throughout the afternoon, weaving through concealed bays and waterways. Fur seals bask on the rocks, bottlenose dolphins are frequently encountered, and sometimes, rare penguins can be observed.

As dusk draws close, the crew will drop anchor in a protected inlet, letting you have time to explore the water's edge by kayak or tender craft (small boat) with a nature guide. For the more courageous, there’s also a possibility to go swimming.  In the evening, sit down to a mouth-watering feast cooked by our onboard chef and unwind in the saloon before retiring to your comfy bed.

Afterwards you will return to Te Anau, with an option to travel on to Queenstown by coach.
