From 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 regions history, flora and fauna provides detailed interpretation in English.

On the return cruise, the vessels 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.
