Find yourself in a serene and otherworldly landscape during this magical kayak tour on Doubtful Sound. Begin with a cruise across Lake Manapouri and a coach ride over Wilmot Pass, before paddling into this striking fiord, exploring Deep Cove, Rolla Island and Olphert Cove.
Spanning a staggering 40km from the head to the Tasman Sea, Doubtful Sound is the deepest fiord in the country and its beauty is unprecedented. Experience its magical physical presence during this full day tour from Manapouri. Your adventure begins with a one hour cruise across Lake Manapouri, followed by a 45 minute bus ride over the Wilmot Pass and down the other side to Deep Cove. After a thorough safety and paddling technique briefing, you'll head out into the expansive waters for three hours. Find solace as you glide along, with nothing but gentle birdsong and cascading waterfalls to break the silence. Visit Deep Cove, Rolla Island and Olphert Cove during your travels, and look out for dolphins or penguins who may make an appearance. Paddle back to base and reflect on your unmatched adventure on the bus and boat ride home.
