Real Journeys Doubtful Sound Overnight Cruise
The Real Journeys Doubtful Sound Overnight Cruise is a night to remember! With rugged peaks, verdant rain forest and twisting, hidden inlets, Doubtful Sound takes one’s breath away. Home to abundant wildlife, guests may see bottle-nose dolphins and fur seals at play, or catch a glimpse of a rare Fiordland Crested Penguin. Getting to Doubtful Sound is an adventure in itself. With no direct road access, the only way is by a cruise across Lake Manapouri and a coach trip over Wilmot Pass. The isolation of this location makes the Fiord a truly special place.
The overnight cruises depart at 12:30pm and return at 11:30am the following day (Sept-May only), giving guests the opportunity to experience the Doubtful Sound during all hours of the day. The vessel is on the larger side, accommodating 72 passengers, but they provide excellent naturalist guides, kayaking and tendercraft excursions, and a social atmosphere.
