Set sail on the Fiordland Jewel catamaran to experience the ultimate in comfort, luxury, and authentic Kiwi hospitality on board.
The Fiordland Jewel catamaran gives 20 guests direct access to many areas including Milford Sound, Preservation Inlet, and Fiordland on one- to seven-day scenic cruises. The aim of this journey is to get you as close as possible to the stunning wilderness.
Each of the nine cabins include a private en suite bathroom. Sleep the night away soundly in your private king suite. Imagine waking up to views of shimmering water and green, rocky hills from your bed facing the large windows.
Beyond your suite, amenities abound across the Fiordland Jewel. Soak in the top-deck tub; it has perhaps the best view on the catamaran. A chef prepares fresh meals served with drinks. Cuddle up with a cup of tea and a blanket on one of the comfy seats while this far-flung landscape unfolds before you.
A helicopter pad onboard makes it easy for you to be whisked off to soar above the scenery. The rugged land has been well known to the Maori who recount legends about the region. Fiordland National Park was declared a World Heritage Area in 1986.
Kayak out into the water to really feel immersed in the incredible beauty of this raw wilderness. A remote operated vehicle relays underwater footage of the vibrant depths of Fiordland’s sounds in real time on the boat lounge’s television. Shy and mysterious marine creatures swim by giving you a glimpse at their world. You will see starfish, lobsters, lots of fish, and black coral trees, some as old as 300-years.
Spend a sandy day at one of Puysegur Point’s secluded beaches and see the most isolated lighthouse in the country. History buffs will feel like they discovered a treasure when they visit the Captain Cook and Gold Rush sites. The British explorer was the first European to visit Fiordland in 1773 spending weeks in Dusky Sound.Request Information
