We took Real Journeys day trip to doubtful sound and spent a day taking in the beauty of a world heritage area. The trip has four parts. A short boat trip across Lake Manapouri, a side trip to the Manapouri power station, a bus trip over a pass to the final part exploring Doubful Sound. I could have done without the power station. The star of the show is Nature - seals, dolphins, waterfalls, mountains, and forests all concentrated in Doubtful Sound.
Next time I will drive to Manapouri to start the tour. I booked a bus from Te Anau but it only added an extra couple of hours to the trip as we went around town picking up and dropping off passengers.
