The overnight cruise in Doubtful Sound with Fiordland Expeditions was a highlight of our trip to NZ and just the right amount of time to spend in Doubtful Sound. Their small vessel was just perfect in creating an intimate environment for fast friendships. Mandy, your hostess, cook, and all-around handywoman, greeted us with champagne as you boarded. Richard, your captain, encourages you to catch your dinner, but will supply your plate with fresh lobsters as well. Fishing at the edge of the sound before open water at sunset was incredible. We took advantage of a sunrise kayak paddle. Watching the ice on the water crack ahead of us as the vessel started making it way in the morning was just amazing. Mandy and Richard kept us well fed (lobster in my scrambled eggs? how decadent! homemade whipped cream with homemade jam on homemade scones = so delicious), well informed, and well entertained and it was very easy to book with them.
