Day 33 | Cruising: Milford Sound, Doubtful Sound, Dusky Sound, New Zealand

 

about Milford Sound: Milford Sound is the undisputed jewel of Fiordland National Park. Because of its outstanding natural beauty and cultural significance, Milford Sound has been nominated a World Heritage area. See Bowen Falls, spectacular Mitre Peak, Tutoko Glacier and the Underwater Observatory in Harrison Cove -- a unique opportunity to look under the dark waters of Milford Sound and see the life teeming below. In fact, when you descend the 60 steps of the underwater viewing platform, you will see how much natural light penetrates these seemingly dark waters.

 

about Doubtful Sound: The grandeur of towering peaks descending into deep waters, outstanding waterfalls and fjords covered with ancient vegetation, all make up the unforgettable solitude and serenity of Doubtful Sound, New Zealand. First named ‘Doubtful Harbour’ by Captain Cook, who was unsure of whether or not the inlet was navigable, was later renamed Doubtful Sound by whalers and sealers. The sound is home to several large waterfalls, notably Helena Falls at Deep Cove, and the Browne Falls, which have a fall of over 600 meters. The fjord also protects the southernmost population of bottlenose dolphins as well as fur seals, penguins, and numerous sea creatures such as sea anemones, coral and starfish.

 

about Dusky Sound: Dusky Sound, New Zealand's longest fjord, is also one of the most beautiful, with numerous wooded islands and inlets. It was given its name by Captain Cook, who sailed past the fjord on his first voyage, in 1770, as evening was falling. The upper reaches of the sound are steep-sided, and the high precipitation of the region leads to hundreds of waterfalls cascading into the sound during the rainy season. You may also have an opportunity to spot some of the area’s wildlife in the water, such as dolphins and seals.

 

Day 34 | Cruising: Dunedin

8 am - 6 pm. This city lies at the head of a fjord-like inlet and is surrounded by seven hills. It is said to be the most perfectly preserved Victorian city anywhere. Dunedin Scottish heritage is everywhere, from a statue of Robert Burns in the Octagon -- the eight-sided heart of the central city -- to the country's only whiskey distillery. In addition, a jewel in the city’s architectural crown is the first Church of Otago. The imposing railway station is worth visiting if only for its locomotives reproduced in stained glass.

 

Day 35 | Cruising: Akaroa, New Zealand

8 am - 6 pm. Akaroa has a unique place in New Zealand's history as the only French settlement in the country. The lovely bayside town has many streets with French names, and some descendants of the original French families still live there. It is the site of the nation's first Catholic Church and the first vineyard in the country.

 

Day 36 | Cruising: Wellington, New Zealand

7 am - 4 pm. Located at the southwestern tip of North Island, New Zealand’s capital city derives its character and charm from the wooded hills that curve like a green amphitheater around Wellington’s harbor. Despite its steep hills, much of the city can be explored on foot, with stairways and walking paths climbing Wellington’s slopes. Bright red cable cars operate between Lambton Quay and Kelburn, offering magnificent views from the top. New Zealand’s versatile capital provides attractions ranging from historic manuscripts to an assortment of native plants and flowers and a collection of unusual instruments -- in short, something for everyone.
