Depart Queenstown for an untouched world deep in the heart of Fiordland National Park. The beauty and vastness of Doubtful Sound will take your breath away as you experience its deep wilderness, be struck by its silence broken only by birdsong or the rushing of a distant waterfall.

In Doubtful Sound, board a spacious, purpose built catamaran for a three hour cruise, with full commentary, through this pristine fiord.
