    Day 1 – Depart Manapouri at 12pm

    Your adventure will start in Manapouri at 12pm with a boat transfer across Lake Manapouri to West Arm, where you will change to a coach to travel over the Wilmot Pass. Here you will capture breathtaking vistas of Doubtful Sound and the surrounding Mountains. You will board the Fiordland Jewel at Deep Cove.

    Day 2 Doubtful Sound

    Explore the many arms and islands that make up Doubtful Sound by kayak or by small boat/tender excursions around the inlets and bays. Wildlife is another reason to visit this fiord – keep an eye out for bottlenose dolphins, fur seals and famous birds like the Fiordland crested penguin. Closer to the Tasman we may see Albatross.

    Day 3 Manapouri

    Return to Deep Cove for the transfer back to Manapouri, leaving 2.15pm for a 4.30pm arrival.
    Join us on an adventure to discover untouched landscapes thriving with an abundance of wildlife. Doubtful Sound/Patea is 10 times larger than Milford Sound/Piopiotahi and is defined by lush rainforests clinging to dramatic peaks. Waterfalls are also gloriously abundant in the area.
