With Doubtful Sound being roughly ten times larger and three times longer than Milford Sound, there are many fantastic secluded waterways and islands to explore that make this the ultimate personal adventure on water.

During the five days we explore Hall Arm, Crooked Arm, Secretary Island, Bradshaw Sound with the hope of getting up into the primeval Camelot River. Depending on the conditions there is also a good chance of getting down into Hall Arm before returning to Deep Cove...a step closer to civilisation, warm showers and comfortable beds!

This is the ultimate kayak + camping experience!
