We had the best time on our overnight cruise. Everything was fabulous - the crew, the food, the boat, the other guests, the weather, the fishing & kayaking, and of course the spectacular sounds! Love, love, loved James! Highly recommended!

My wife and I had a fantastic time on the Cindy Hardy, starting with the helicopter flight from Te Anau weather was unusually good, the crew are absolutely welcoming, full of knowledge of the area. food really good, fresh blue code, crayfish unlimited. Friends had done the trip previously and totally enjoyed it. Would not hesitate to do the trip again.

We had a fabulous overnight cruise in Doubtful Sound and would highly recommend it to anyone. Great just being a small group,11 of us all up and then 2 crew. Boat is extremely comfortable and the crew amazing. We were well looked after and feed so well with crayfish, fresh fish as well as a choice of other yummy dishes. Jenny is an amazing cook. Right from booking the trip to leaving the boat we were well looked after and nothing was a problem.

Absolutely faultless on Southern Secret boat overnight in Doubtful Sounds. Small group on board (max 12person) heated private rooms with ensuite. Fishing kayaking swimming crayfish pots dolphin watching. Amazing food by the Chef Jenny including crayfish & Blue Cod. AND magical serene setting of gorgeous doubtful sounds with waterfalls etc. So much packed into a short time. So glad we decided to do this. Was well worth it xxx 10 out of 10
