Overview

Take a trip with us on a Doubtful Sound Wilderness Cruise from Manapouri to the untamed beauty that lies at the very heart of Fiordland National Park. The vast and untouched beauty of Doubtful Sound is nothing short of breathtaking to everyone lucky enough to witness this deep wilderness.

As you explore Doubtful Sound, you cannot help but be taken aback by the amazing silence. The only noises you will hear is the rushing sound of a waterfall off in the distance and birds singing. 

You begin your day in Manapouri as you cruise across the picture-perfect Lake Manapouri. You will then travel across the most expensive road in New Zealand over Wilmot Pass. Along the way, you will get to enjoy the remarkable Fiordland rainforest along with the sparkling Doubtful Sound below.

Once in Doubtful Sound, you will board the Patea Explorer. Our purpose built catamaran offers you the luxury of spacious surroundings as you enjoy a three hour cruise through this immaculate fiord. As you explore these waters, our experienced and educated nature guides will provide you with the perfect commentary. Take this opportunity to ask any questions you like as they highlight important landmarks and share interesting information about the local wildlife including fur seals and the rare Fiordland crested penguin.
