Doubtful Sound

Much of Fiordland National Park is inaccessible by road and this is true of Doubtful Sound.  This remote location is vast and untouched and only accessed by  a cruise across Lake Manapouri and a coach trip over Wilmot Pass into Deep Cove.

Doubtful Sound lies at the geographic heart of Fiordland and has rugged peaks and hidden inlets.  It is the second largest fiord in Fiordland National Park and three times longer than Milford Sound.  Doubtful Sound is known not only for its breathtaking scenery, but also for its abundant wildlife – bottlenose dolphins, fur seals and penguins.
