We were extremely disappointed with our experience booking this trip. I booked it online weeks before. The dates I chose was accepted. 24 hours later I received an email stating the dates I chose were not available, my credit card had been charged and asking if I’d like to book at another time. That wasn’t an option for our travel dates. I was told I would be refunded on my credit card. The only problem is with the exchange rates It ended up costing my $100+ ! So not only were we not able to take this cruise it cost ME cash out of my pocket!
If the dates are not available online they should NOT be charging a credit card,! I would appreciate having this difference credited to me!

We took the Fiordland Expeditions Overnight Cruise - Doubtful Sound. It was AMAZING. The crew was excellent and the scenery and experience were phenomenal. Includes a wide variety of unique experiences: boating through the beautiful fiords, kayaking/swimming, seal-watching, deep sea fishing, crew dove for fresh lobster, epic stargazing, dolphins swimming 2 meters away from us for 15 mintues, and more. It was expensive but the once-in-a-lifetime experience was well worth it. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

The Doubtful Sounds and it’s wild life will not disappoint anyone. However this boat experience was poor from start to finish . Staff were tired and not trained in the responsibility of operating the boat or the safety of its passengers. We would not recommend this company .

The scenery is jaw-dropping and extremely beautiful ! It was very nice to take this small group as you could definitely enjoy everything to the most. With the friendly crew, l felt I was travelling with my family. Seafood lunch, lobster dinner and warm cooked breakfast, fishes were caught on that day, everything was delicious! Very nice chef ! It was unbelievable the food was from that small kitchen. We also did fishing , kayaking.. quiet and calm surface...so unique trip ! As we travelled in the eve of the New year, we counted down together and did firework on the roof to celebrate with champagnes and wines ! Absolutely it was one of my most unforgettable trips in my life ! It was just so perfect and impeccable !!

Everrything to be totally honest.....from the online booking service which was simply excellent to every tiny detail of the cruise itself. The boat we were hooked on broke down.... we feel it was a blessing. The Sound itself is obviously out-of-control blow-your-mind glorious... and everything else measured up too. Even the weather and wildlife came to the party.....

Product rating:   excellent

Onboard Chris and Ellie were both wonderful, the Sound itself is blow-your-socks-off incredible, the boat was super comfortable, the food was simply delicious, the activities kept us on our toes, the company was unexpectedly fabulous, the weather was spectacilar and wild life did its bit to make this 2-day trip a clear highlight of our NZ adventure. Couldnt possibly speak more highly of the experience

Really good arrangements, well organised. The overnight cruise on Doubtful Sound with Fiordland Expeditions was truly amazing. The crew were so competent, personable and good fun and enabled the group to gel and get to know one another. The food was first class and beautifully presented, more like a gourmet restaurant than a boat! The cabins were very clean and comfortable and everything we needed was provided. Nothing too much trouble. The Fishing, kayaking and diving were highlights and the scenery just breathtaking. Thank you.

Latest Questions about Fiordland Expeditions Overnight Cruise (Doubtful Sound)

I am interested in the overnight cruise for Doubtful Sound and prefer more private trip than with too many people. I notice there are a few packages and ones with 70 and ones with less. What is the pricing for them and would there be any availabilities for 14 January 2018 for 2 cabins (4 adults)?

We are a family of 2 parents and three offspring: female 28yrs, male 27yrs and male 23yrs. What is the best choice of cabin arrangements for us? Travel dates flexible either 10th,11th,12th February 2018


Hi Linda, I would say the best choice for your family is the bunk room for your 3 children- it's on the top deck with beautiful viewing opportunities of the stars. Then one of the private cabins for you and your husband. I would recommend with an ensuite so the 5 of you can share that if need be, as although the bunk room has a toilet, it does not have a shower and there is only 1 other shower on the boat

How do we get from a hotel in Queenstown to Manapori to board this cruise?


Hiya, Transfers from Queenstown are not included with this cruise. They may be able to arrange a pick up from Te Anau. You can get a bus there from Queenstown or i would recommend just hiring a car and driving to Manapouri.

We are a group of three adult and 2 children who are age four, would like to know how much is the rate of our children? thanks

We are travelling with a 1 year old. There are no prices listed for children under 5. Can you please clarify the options for children under 5.


Hi Keely, your 1 year old will travel free of charge on the Fiordland Overnight Cruise. You can either book a premium cabin or economy cabin so you will have a double bed and bunk or else you can book in the bunkroom.
