Doubtful Sound

Doubtful Sound

When you discover Doubtful Sound you will be struck by its silence – a silence broken only by birdsong, or maybe the rushing of a distant waterfall.
Your Doubtful Sound adventure begins as you cruise the crystal clear waters of Lake Manapouri – a stunning lake renowned for its numerous islands and deserted beaches.
Then it’s over Wilmot Pass, on one of New Zealand’s remotest and prettiest sub-alpine roads, stopping along the way to experience some of Fiordland’s densest rainforest and to view Doubtful Sound glistening far below.
On reaching Deep Cove, you will board the Patea Explorer our spacious catamaran, for a three hour cruise that takes in the most dramatic scenery of Doubtful Sound.
Our nature guides provide an engaging commentary and point out highlights.
Keep a look out for wildlife as bottlenose dolphins frequently swim alongside our vessel, fur seals bask on the rocks around the fiord and rare penguins can at times be observed.
