Doubtful Sound is a remote fiord on a grand scale! Meeting at the Visitor Centre in Manapouri, begin your day with boat travel across Lake Manapouri, then cross the Southern Alps by coach, travelling over the Wilmot Pass into Doubtful Sound. The isolation of this place makes the fiord a very unique place few people get to experience. In Doubtful Sound spend 2.5 hours exploring the full length of the fiord to the Tasman Sea.
With a large viewing deck offering covered and uncovered seating there is plenty of opportunity to view this beautiful and serene fiord. Take in the rugged mountains clad in dense sub forest, cascading waterfalls, valleys carved out by glaciers in another age and the pristine waterways. It is like no where else in the world. Wildlife, such as penguins, dolphins, seals & sea birds, while not guaranteed, are often sighted during the cruise through this remote part of Fiordland World heritage area.
Note: During summer 01 October to 30 April you will travel with Go Orange to Doubtful Sound. In the winter from 01 May to 30 September it will be Real Journeys
