Go on a Doubtful Sound cruise extended by a cruise on Lake Manapouri and a bus drive through the picturesque Wilmot Pass. On the Tasman Explorer, everyone will find a comfortable place to enjoy the views as our vessel has two spacious decks and it 24 metres long.

This experience will let you discover cascading waterfalls, towering mountains and diverse flora and fauna for 2,5 hours. The fjord is also home to bottlenose dolphins, fur seals and penguins so look closely to those amazing animals. During the Doubtful Sound cruise, you are also welcomed to use facilities on the vessel such as a cafe and a bar with local products. We are looking forward to seeing you on board!
