Doubtful Sound Overnight Cruise ex Manapouri - Private Fishing/Diving/Hunting Charters in Fiordland.
Fiordland Expeditions can show you this truly outstanding world class scenery, including some of the highest mountains to rise directly from the sea-floor and deep water reflecting the sheer cliff forms; the word "paradise" is never far from our guests lips.
Whilst considering your boat cruise in Fiordland, your hardest decision is which option to take to enjoy it in your own way.
Doubtful Sound Cruise Options:
Doubtful Sound Overnight - A Doubtful Sound Overnight Cruise is an excellent way of experiencing what Fiordland has to offer if you have a limited time budget.
Private Charter (fishing, hunting & diving) - By far the best way to see this magical part of the world is to either take a Private Charter for as many nights as you require or if you are few in numbers then you can Join A Group and meet new friends.
Join A Group - If you can't get a group together but want to take an extended trip then register with us and we'll see when we can fit you in.
Whichever way you go time becomes irrelevant as the never-ending scenery unravels before you, but there's a whole world beneath the hull too.
Brachiopods, black and red coral, sea anemones, sea pens and fish life, all normally found in the deep are found much closer to the surface here. This allowes you to view them in five to forty metres of clear water. It's a world class diving experience in your very own playground.
Then there's the option of harvesting your meals from the sea by fishing.
Fish makes a wonderful meal and the succulent flesh of the blue cod is the most preffered fish in the region, but there's also plentiful terakihi, trumpeter, hapuku (groper) or blue nose (sea bass).
They're all excellent eating and you can add a side dish by diving for scallops, crayfish (lobster) and paua (abalone) to whet the appetite.
And all the while on the shore, there's classic deer hunting with red deer and wapiti in great quantities on the tree-clad slopes of Fiordland, just a short ride away by Tutoko's tender.
Put simply, your dining choices outclass many world renowned restaurants for freshness and variety - and you get to go to market yourself!
The Tutoko II comes fully equipped with facilities that will ensure the best experience possible. Your crew will assist in any way you require so your experience will be the very best memory we can offer.
And that's not a claim we make lightly, as our testimonials and articles show.
Tutoko II is set up to provide comfort for up to 14 clients on each Private Charter or Doubtful Sound Overnight Cruise.
Whether you board with your family and friends or join a group, a Fiordland Expeditions wilderness adventure makes for a world of comradeship and relaxation you'll never forget.
