Are you a sociable soul that would like to work in one of New Zealand's most stunning landscapes? In the heart of Doubtful Sound our esteemed overnight vessel, the Navigator, is waiting for you to join the crew.

You will be working for a family-owned tourism provider, in the location it all started, 65 years ago. This is a unique opportunity to contribute to the vision of the Real Journeys founders and share your backyard with visitors from all over the world!

We're looking for crew members with a passion for people and the outdoors, who can maintain great service throughout the busy routine on board. This could be the hardest job you'll ever love.

As part of your role you will have the opportunity to gain a NZ Certificate in Domestic Maritime Crewing - a NZQA approved qualification.
