Hi, Real Journeys operate the day tours into Doubtful Sound. There are several small companies which provide overnight trips, along with RJs. The overnight trips are highly recommended :)

Apart from Real Journey's there are a couple of small boat operators but I think most do overnight stuff.

I've done the day trip with Real Journey's and whilst it is a large boat it is an awesome experience. You get excellent service on a very modern vessel. They show short documentary's on the area on the flat screen TV's, have a roving nature guide and generally put on a great day out. Doubtful Sound is nothing like Milford with its huge boats (by comparison) and chances are your boat is the only one you'll see.
