Doubtful Sound is a remote fiord known as ‘the Sound of Silence’. It’s home to one of the southernmost populations of bottlenose dolphins. This majestic fiord has no direct road access so is quieter and more remote than it’s famous neighbour Milford Sound, visitors agree that this adds to its magic.

This tour includes a Wilderness day cruise.

  • Start with a cruise across Lake Manapouri, followed by a coach trip over the epic Wilmot Pass through Fiordland’s rainforest and into the Sound
  • A 3-hour cruise through the waterways of Doubtful Sound

  • Wildlife viewing, including dolphins, fur seals and even occasionally penguins
  • Picnic lunches available for purchase from Manapouri Café or choose an add on lunch option when making your booking
