Amazing guide - Robbie

Even thou our two day was cancelled due to weather and the camp site was going to flood. We did a one day in the rain and this was amazing - well worth it . Amazing water falls, spotted wild life and great tales and great attitude from our guide Robbie. More kiwis need to do this!! 😀

Awesome to hear you had a great day out with us in Doubtful Sound last week. You were lucky enough to experience Fiordland in a storm - amazing!! Yes we agree - more kiwis should come and visit :-)

Best NZ experience

This was the best thing I've done in NZ. Had a great guide. The weather wasn't that great, but she made sure we were able to get through it and kept our safety a priority while managing to get us out of the water to have a good time! My only recommendation would be to let people try on wetsuits before just assigning a size (only taking weight and height), I was given a small but shoulders were killing me because of it being a tad too tight. Other than that it was great!

Awesome Tour with wonderful views

Had a wonderful time on the Kayak Overnighter in the Doubtful Sound. Very good equipment and organisation, great introduction, interesting knowledge about the fjord and much more and a beautiful scenery for two days. Thanks to Ollie (our guide) who did an awesome job!

Kayaking a fjiord.

The kayaking was incredible, beautiful places and waterfalls up close and personal. Our guide, Scott was fun, full of stories and clearly well qualified to lead us when the weather became formidible. I appreciated the smooth transitions from our hostel doorstep, through 2 bus rides and 2 boat rides to our put in,deep deep inside fjiordland. Did I hate the sand flies? Doesn't everyone? Thank goodness I didn't let them keep me from the "great adventure" I had with the GO ORANGE team amd my fellow travelers!
