Lonely Planet review

Has a Wilderness Cruise day trip (adult/child $235/65), beginning with a 45-minute boat ride across Lake Manapouri to West Arm power station, followed by a bus ride over Wilmot Pass to the sound, which you explore on a three-hour cruise. Pick up options from Te Anau or Queenstown are also available. To venture underground and admire a power station, take a separate Lake Manapouri cruise (adult/child $70/22, October to April). From September to May, Real Journeys also runs a Doubtful Sound overnight cruise. The Fiordland Navigator sleeps 70 and has twin-share, en-suite cabins (per adult/child from $675/337.50) and quad-share bunkrooms ($375/187.50). Transport to and from Te Anau or Queenstown is available. Prices include meals and kayaking or tender-craft trips.
