Overview

Experience an 8-hour day trip into the remote wilderness of Doubtful Sound, the heart of Fiordland National Park, while nature guides answer questions and point out landmarks. This fiord is home to bottlenose dolphins and fur seals - both are often seen. In season, you may even catch a glimpse of the rare Fiordland crested penguins. Explore Doubtful Sound's vast waterways on board a luxury Catamaran. A highlight is experiencing the unique 'Sound of Silence', where you hear only birdsong while floating on the fiord with the engines turned off.

Highlights

  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city
  • Family friendly
  • Travel by boat and see the sights from the water

A great trip on Doubtful Sound. There was very little traffic with no other sizeable vessels on the water and this ensured that we could fully appreciate the magnificent views and the opportunity to see wildlife etc

The tour was a great view of the country side in New Zealand. I wish we were able to do the power house tour. I would recommend this tour if you are going in the area.
