Definitely a highlight of our trip was the overnight cruise. Saw dolphins, seals and penguins. Well maintained track.

Would be perfect but for the price, slightly expensive for an average traveller. Incredible trip though: a very special place and a great Real Journeys team make for an unmissable experience.

Good food and service, too much talking through the speaker system.

This was our bit of luxury, money wise, even though we shared a quad bunk - worked out fine (with a German couple). All transport was fine, boat had plenty of space (except some reserved booths!). Information as going was good. Food great. Very relaxing - good weather helped. Staff friendly. Activities OK. Saw lots of dolphins and seals which helped. Found a good couple to pal up with.

Overnight cruise on Doubtful Sound. Lovely staff, great food (heaps of it), clean facilities. Very informative guide. Amazing trip even though the weather not the best.
