Doubtful Sound (Patea)

Equally stunning and more remote, Doubtful Sound is a nature lover’s dream destination. Here you can see Rare Fiordland Crested Penguins, New Zealand Fur Seals and playful Bottlenose and Dusky Dolphins. The richness and diversity of the scenery will leave you speechless.

Away from it all, you can experience the “Sound of Silence”. It is also within this fiord that we can offer you extended kayaking trips which take you further than anyone else. Our scenic helicopter flights also offer nearby glacier landings.

You will return from a day at Doubtful Sound with memories that will last a lifetime. You can also choose one of our scenic helicopter flights that combines this destination with some of the lesser known Sounds such as Nancy, Caswell and George.
