Explore the spectacular Doubtful Sound on a relaxing sightseeing cruise. Located in the remote UNESCO-listed Fiordland National Park, getting to Doubtful Sound is quite an adventure: first you have to cross Lake Manapouri and the Wilmot Pass. There's a good chance to see fur seals and bottlenose dolphins, as well as unforgettable views of the rainforest and mountains of the park, whatever the weather.
