We were staying at the Distinction Te Anau hotel, and observed the small floater plane stationed on the lake right across the road. We gave it a try and had a fabulous time. We did the Doubtful Sound ride. Views were amazing, the pilot super friendly and very knowledgeable of the region. It lasted 40min and this is a good duration. Of course it is a little expensive, but in my opinion well worth the money. We could not include a Doubtful Sound boat ride in our tight program and felt that this was a nice way to see some of it. But crossing the Southern Alps and seeing some altitude lakes ended up being to me the most fun part of the journey.
