Doubtful Sound is home to unique birds, seals, dolphins and the very rare Fiordland Crested Penguin that are sometimes encountered on Rolla Island as we paddle around the shoreline. Kayaking is one of the best ways to capture these rare and unique photo opportunities.

Note: If we can’t kayak due to weather conditions the kayaking may be substituted with a 3 hour boat cruise.
