Brilliant trip

Superb day from the outset, excellent friendly staff, Ferry trip relaxing, great mountain scenery over Wilmott Pass then brilliant trip on Doubtful Sound with hundreds of water falls with the rain. Very gentle ride in Boat with informative commentary. A must do if in Te Anau.

Our trip to Doubtful Sound

Heading out to Doubtful Sound it was raining and we couldn't see a thing. The rain stopped and wow, the waterfalls were amazing. We had dolphins surfing in our wake and saw lots of seals on the rocks. A truly amazing experience with a very knowledgeable tour guide who was very informative and as excited as us to see so many waterfalls on the day
