Itinerary

Cross stunning Lake Manapouri by ferry then, by coach, cross the Southern Alps over the Wilmot Pass into Deep Cove.  Get a taste of Doubtful Sound with 3 hours of actual paddling out on the fiord exploring Deep Cove, Rolla Island and over to Olphert Cove and return.

Trip Information

Doubtful Sound is home to some unique birds, seals, dolphins and the very rare Fiordland Crested Penguin which 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 that takes in the whole length of Doubtful Sound.
