Doubtful Sound

674569647

Stunning fjords, waterfalls, steep mountains rising virtually out of the sound, the utter stillness of the night spent anchored in First Arm. The Fjordland Navigator, operated by Real Journeys, was comfortable, attentive staff, good food, on board bar, opportunities to talk with the captain as he navigated the Sound, kayaking or swimming allowed us to get closer to our stunning surroundings.

The experience of a lifetime. Trip on lake Te-Anau then coach ride over the pass and finally boat onto Doubtful Sound which is amazing. So beautiful and when the engines are switched off and all is silent it is magic. At one with nature as it was for thousands of years. Excellent tour guides and great faculties for a comfortable ride on the boats. A must do in NZ

Go Orange provide a very professional, organised service and meet their promise of a trip with small numbers on a comfortable boat. Travis and Karina were the guide and.captain for the day, both being amusing, knowledgeable and enthusiastic in making it enjoyable for all, The trip across lake Manapouri is a great start to the day, followed by an interesting bus ride to the harbour. Karina made a few stops showing interesting place on the way. The 3 hours sailing the Sound is full of spectacular mountains, waterfalls and scenery all around. Time passed quickly and at the end you have the pleasure of reversing the bus journey and Manapouri lake crossing to look forward to. It is not a cheap trip but does provide the small personal tour promised in a comfortable boat with enough personal space to view the Sound. We would certainly do the trip again and would recommend it to others. Thanks for a superb and memorable day
