Weather Doubtful Sound overnight Cruise


We're thinking about taking the overnight cruise to Doubtful Sound at Nov 24th.

The weather is showing like a little cloudy or maybe rain.

According to my reading the whole area is usually this weather.

Should I take it or I wont get any fun of it ?

I have no idea on Doubtful, but if it is raining strong the road to Milford Sound is pretty amazing with all the huge waterfalls. If you can squeeze that drive (or even better, bus tour) in on a really rainy day, it is very impressive. Practically everyone I met on the road was acting like a little kid, giddy with excitement, at seeing these falls (me included).

Our experience -- Doubtful Sound in the rain is beautiful. Unbelievable number of waterfalls -- well, technically maybe they're not all "waterfalls," but that will be explained to you. Beautiful! We lucked out in waking the next morning to bright sunshine, so we saw Doubtful Sound in two completely different lights.

Given the chance -- and the money -- we'd do it again.

Seriously. Its Fiordland which is most stunning in the rain, wonderful waterfalls, dramatic features. Seriously, if you consider not doing it because of a little cloud or rain you missing out on a lot of wonderful things. take insect repellant, raincoat and great attitude. You will love it whatever the weather
