Doubtful Sound is the second largest of the 14 fjords in Fiordland National Park and is three times longer and ten times larger than Milford Sound. Doubtful Sound is recognized for its wilderness nature and wildlife.

It is recommended you take a cruise across Lake Manapouri (New Zealand’s prettiest lakes) to West Arm of the Lake then coach over the Wilmot Pass Road, stopping along the way at the Wilmot Pass lookout point to experience some breath taking views of Doubtful Sound. Stop by at Deep Cove, an arm of Doubtful Sound and take a tour of the highly impressive Manapouri Underground Power Station (New Zealand’s largest hydroelectric power station)

The cruise around Doubtful Sound is truly awesome and you will get to enjoy the views of pristine forest, pure rock walls and falling waterfalls. Doubtful Sound really does have breath taking scenery you will never forget.

Wildlife found in Doubtful Sound includes bottlenose dolphins, New Zealand fur seals and Fiordland crested penguins.

It is highly recommended you do both the Milford Sound and Doubtful Sound tours.
