Doubtful Sound, is quite simply awesome on a scale you won’t believe.

Brief Itinerary:

Cruise across Lake Manapouri by ferry, coach cross the Southern Alps over the Wilmot Pass into Doubtful Sound. In Doubtful Sound spend 3 hours exploring the full length of the fiord to the Tasman Sea and return.

The isolation of this place makes the fiord a very unique place few people get to experience.

Doubtful Sound is also home to some of New Zealand's unique birds, seals and on occasion dolphins, whales, and the very rare Fiordland Crested Penguin visit the sound providing privileged photo opportunities – which you can capture on your iPhone, iPod, pad, instagram and upload, post, send, tweet, pin, blog and email to your heart’s content when back in the land of cellphone towers!
