Real Journeys, which operates boats in both Milford and Doubtful Sounds, is significantly up-scaling Doubtful Sound operations to cater for more visitors and will continue to operate a fly-cruise-fly Milford option. The company has relocated one boat, being the Milford Mariner from Milford to Doubtful Sound, increasing on-board capacity to 400 visitors per day to help cater for “a decent proportion of the total daily expected visitors to Milford” for this time of the year, Real Journeys chief executive Richard Lauder has stated. “Doubtful Sound is a vast and remote fiord that many of our visitors rate as highly as Milford. The trip is more than a boat cruise, it’s an experience – and this is a great chance for Doubtful Sound to shine,” he adds. Cruise options include day trips and multi-day luxury and guided nature discovery voyages.
