Doubtful Sound Wilderness Cruise (Day 1)Start your Milford Sound cruise with hotel pickup in Te Anau followed by a boat ride across Lake Manapouri. Disembark for a coach journey over Wilmot Pass, making stops to appreciate the glorious South Island countryside en route to your destination.

Arriving at the remote wilderness of Doubtful Sound, settle comfortably aboard a spacious catamaran. Throughout your 3-hour cruise, the captain sheds light on the natural wonder, situated in World Heritage–listed Fiordland National Park, while navigating the pristine waterway.

Come up close to dramatic rainforest-clad slopes and cascading waterfalls sometimes shrouded in eerie mists, and be on the lookout for a range of wildlife, including penguins, fur seals and bottlenose dolphins. Your Doubtful Sound tour ends with a boat and ground transfer back to your hotel.

Te Anau Glowworm Caves Tour (Day 2) Starting from the Te Anau Visitors Centre, a catamaran delivers you to the western shores of Lake Te Anau. Disembark at the Cavern House, where an informative guide explains the inner workings of the Te Anau caves and reveals the mysterious life of its residents: tiny glowworms.

Taking an underground pathway, follow your guide through the waterfall-filled limestone labyrinth, then drift along the current in a small boat to the glowworm grotto. Here, the magical display of thousands of tiny glowworms will leave you awestruck. After this otherworldly experience, cruise back across the lake to Te Anau where your tour ends.

Had a excellent time on both days. The trip to Doubtful Sound was great, the boat cruise across Lake Manapouri was relaxing before jumping on the bus and having a very informative bus driver take us to Deep Cove to catch the next boat to cruise up the fiord which was fantastic being able to see the rugged shore line. Seeing the seals sun baking on the rocks was great unfortunately was on the wrong side of the boat to see the Penguins but others on board were luckier. To top off a great day the view of the sound from Wilmot Pass was magnificent.
The next morning took the cruise to the Te Anau Glowworm Cave a very informative and relaxing cruise across Lake Te Anau and the cave it self was unreal walking beside and over the rushing water and seeing the inside waterfall then to sit in the boat and see the lights of the glow worms was great.

Absolutely amazing tour, although would not recommend booking through Viator. We found ourselves really stressed out not knowing where to meet to be picked up as it was not stated on the voucher booking and had to call customer services twice.

This was a fabulous trip for us. Doubtful Sound is amazing, majestic and so quiet! Glowworm tour was also good, beautiful craft to get us around, very modern heated vessels with great viewing decks and very comfortable. Make sure to take insect repellent as the sandflies will carry you off!

Had a truly wonderful day on Doubtful Sound. All guides were full of interesting, fascinating and amusing facts. Although a long day and fairly tiring it was one of the highlights of our holiday.
we also enjoyed our Glow worm trip and found it quite interesting too.
