That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
Cruise across the crystal waters of Lake Manapouri to West Arm before boarding a coach and crossing the alpine route of the Wilmot Pass through some of Fiordlands most dense rainforest. On reaching Deep Cove board a modern catamaran vessel, the Patea Explorer, for a three hour cruise.
Departing from Queenstown, travel by coach to Manapouri. Cruise across the crystal waters of Lake Manapouri to West Arm before boarding a coach and crossing the alpine route of the Wilmot Pass through some of Fiordlands most dense rainforest. On reaching Deep Cove board a modern catamaran vessel, the Patea Explorer, for a three hour cruise exploring the waterways of this serene and isolated fiord.
There is plenty of time available to explore points of interest and view the spectacular alpine scenery including waterfalls, rainforest and mountains all the way out to the Tasman Sea. It is home to Bottlenose dolphins and fur seals and when in season, the rare Fiordland Crested penguin. A nature guide with specialist knowledge of the region's history, flora and fauna provides detailed interpretation in English.
On the return cruise, the vessel's engines are turned off and passengers are treated to the "sound of silence" where guests experience floating in silence on the fiord, only the rush of waterfalls and birdsong breaks the silence.
In the event of rain or inclement weather your experience will still go ahead unless contacted by the experience provider. If your experience is cancelled you will be rescheduled by the provider.
Comfortable weather appropriate clothing is recommended.
This experience takes place in Doubtful Sound, departing Queenstown.
