About Doubtful Sound, New Zealand
Located deep in the heart of a World Heritage Area, Doubtful Sound is an overwhelming place. Feel the power of nature, the remoteness, wildness and peace.
Doubtful Sound is often referred to at ‘the Sound of Silence,’ there is serenity and tranquility within Doubtful Sound that contrasts to Milford Sound. Like Milford Sound, this fiord is rich in flora and fauna, fur seals and Fiordland Crested penguins. So if it is a bit of peace and quiet you are after enjoy a Doubtful Sound day cruise or an overnight cruise to truly experience the sound during both day and night.
At a depth of 421 metres, this is the deepest of the fiords in Fiordland. It is long and winding with three arms and several waterfalls from the departure point at Deep Cove to the open ocean. The sound is around 40 kms long, so there is plenty of time to sit back and relax and take in the scenery.
Doubtful Sound is the second largest of the 14 fiords in Fiordland National Park and it is three times longer and 10 times larger than Milford Sound. To reach Doubtful Sound, join a Doubtful Sound day cruise which includes a short cruise across island-studded Lake Manapouri, a coach trip on the remote sub-alpine route over Wilmot Pass and full cruise along Doubtful Sound, taking in the most dramatic scenery.
If taking the overnight cruise you will really immerse yourself in Doubtful Sound’s breathtaking beauty, towering peaks and bush clad islands. Sea kayaking is the alternative; experience a personal adventure with a kayaking and camping experience in the remote environment.
