Doubtful Sound Wilderness Day Cruise Ex Queenstown

On boarding the coach in Queenstown, visitors are treated to a relaxing trip along the shores of Lake Wakatipu and through the rolling countryside to Pearl Harbour, Manapouri.

They then board a Real Journeys vessel and cruise across picturesque Lake Manapouri to West Arm before travelling by coach through dense rainforest across Wilmot Pass. There are opportunities along the way to examine the plant life and view the spectacular scenery.

Once at Deep Cove, visitors board the catamaran, the ‘Commander Peak’, for a three-hour cruise of beautiful Doubtful Sound. On board there is excellent viewing of waterfalls, rainforest and mountains.

Of particular interest, if sighted, are fur seals basking on the rocks, or a resident pod of bottlenose dolphins. Rare Fiordland crested penguins are sometimes encountered on a seasonal basis. Understanding of the area is greatly enhanced by the interesting on board English commentary. On the return journey, the vessel’s engines are turned off and visitors are treated to the “Sound of Silence”.
