Ocean Ports of Call

Doubtful Sound - New Zealand Highlights:
Densely wooded fiord
Doubtful Sound is equally as intriguing as the name implies. Named after Captain Cook spotted it in 1770 but was "doubtful" of his ability to sail out again, this steep sided, densely wooded fiord lies in the remote southwest corner of New Zealand. It is part of the largest of the nation's national parks - Fiordland National Park. Cruise ships cruise through the fjord, often entering by Thomson Sound exiting by the narrow entrance of Doubtful Sound. Note that the sea approach can be rough at times, the rainfall intense and the mountains tops hidden in mist. Wildlife is a major attraction of this area although difficult to spot on land from a ship. Kaka, Kiwi and other rare bird species can be found here. In the Sound bottlenose dolphins may put in an appearance and fur seals and Fiordland crested penguins may be seen on the outer islands.

There are more than 30 cruises calling at this port. Click the month or cruise line logo you are interested in to see details of the cruises.
