What makes us different?

We are a Owner/Operated Doubtful Sound Cruise business.

We are the ‘real locals’ having lived in Manapouri for most of our lives (Chris has firsthand knowledge of the West Arm power station and 2nd tunnel construction and has spent virtually all his life in Fiordland).

Being true blue locals our knowledge of Doubtful Sound is profound.

We try to steer away from the ‘large/impersonal approach’ to our business in fact we pride ourselves on all our trips being:

  • Small (no more than 12)
  • Personal and friendly (we genuinely do want the very best experience for you)
  • And caters for those who want something a little less commercialised.  

We appreciate you have come a long way to do a trip, that is why we go to every effort to make this an EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME.

We wanted small, personal outfitters so opted to go with Deep Cove Charters and we could not recommend them highly enough.
