Doubtful Sound is commonly referred to as "the sound of silence" and now is the time to immerse yourself in its sweet serenity.

Our epic 3-hour kayaking experience is unlike any other, bound to give you ultimate bragging rights amongst your friends.

Longer, deeper and bigger than Milford Sound, Doubtful Sound is here to rival the masses. The mountains are just as high, the cliffs are steep, the waterfalls are powerful and the views are even MORE SPECTACULAR (in our humble opinion of course). We are sometimes at a loss for words of how to adequately describe the raw, majestic beauty of this Fiord, so come and let us lead the way.

Kayaking gives you a whole new perspective to this immensely stunning corner of the world and we aim to challenge the ordinary and leave you with memories that are unsurpassable.

We challenge you to delve deeper, go further than the average experience and Go beyond with us.

Great Experience

My mom and I had a wonderful experience with the Go Orange staff. Cam, our guide, was very informative and extremely nice. We even took a slight detour to watch dolphins swim around us!

What a tour, what a guide!

If you're tossing up between Milford and Doubtful Sounds, do Doubtful. It's isolated, dead quiet, stunningly beautiful and you probably won't have to share the water with anyone. Our guide, "Nacho", was friendly, helpful, extremely knowledgeable on the history, flora, fauna and Maori particulars of the area. My only criticism would be how Go Orange describe this tour: if you're booking to see seals, dolphins and other sea mammals you'll be disappointed. We saw a few birds but nothing else, which seems to be how it is for 90% of the year. Thank you to Nacho and Go Orange for a memorable Sea Kayak tour.

Kayaking Doubtful Sound

From start to finish, we were impressed with Go Orange. They are well organized and focused on safety. Equipment and clothing was top notch. And the destination is incredible; hope to do the trip again some day!
