Explore Doubtful, Breaksea and Dusky Sounds, including Preservation and Chalky Inlets, aboard the Fiordland Jewel

Soak in the atmosphere and pristine wilderness of New Zealand’s largest National Park on this six-night expedition. Part of the Te Wahipounamu World Heritage site, Fiordland’s Doubtful, Breaksea and Dusky Sounds are rich in history and spectacular scenery. Experience the area’s native birds and sea life up close and personal, with opportunities for kayaking, short walks and fishing to catch a feed, if you so wish, from our purpose-built catamaran, the Fiordland Jewel.

With a maximum of just 18 passengers on board, there will be many opportunities to soak up stories of the area from our knowledgeable crew, and to take in breathtaking vistas from the deck or from any of our nine climate-controlled cabins, all of which have sea views and private ensuites. Relax in the hot tub on the top deck and enjoy all your meals prepared by our talented on board chef, with seafood/kaimoana pulled fresh from the surrounding waters.

Individual cabins can be booked for yourself, your small group of family and friends, or as a couple, for an experience you’ll be talking about for years to come.
