Super efficient ferry service - 1 hour crossing - staff are great - what more is there to say. Only other option is to fly which is a lot more or charter your own boat.

We had superb weather and the crossing both ways was a doddle. Have done crossings in the past with BIG seas and it can be an assault on the nerves! The crew as ever were slick and super well organised. As I have seen previously, those who sit towards the front and cant see outside tend to get sea sick, so sit towards the back, or even stand up, will reduce chances of seasickness dramatically.

Our visit to Stewart Island in December was great. Excellent accomodation at Jimmy's cottage, a great morning fishing with Squiggy, carving Greenstone with Dave at Rakiura Jade, some walking and excellent food, drink and chat at the South Sea Hotel. Well worth visiting this beautiful, QUIET and interesting Island.

Expensive but well worth the overnight experience, trip across Lake Manapouri was smooth and narrated by Ian. The bus ride over the pass was narrated by adriverbJohn with a dry wit and the Fjordland Navagator trip was magical. The staff was very friendly, the servers xengreat and the educational program narrated by Carol fantastic can’t fault the food either.
We enjoyed two bright sunny days in the sound but experienced a wide range of temperatures from morning to night.
This is a magical place.

This was a day to remember - collected by bus from our site, brought to ferry to sail over lake Manapouri, coached over Wilmot Pass and then ferry to mouth of Doubtful Sound.
Well organised itinerary, fantastic scenery. An excellent day trip (9.30am collection to 6.30pm drop off) by a well run organisation.
