Go Orange – Kayak Doubtful Overnighter

This two day adventure connects you with nature in the spectacular wilderness of Doubtful Sound. There is no TV, no phones and no internet. Just you, your small group and your kayaks.

Begin your epic adventure with a cruise across stunning Lake Manapouri followed by a comfortable coach journey across the Southern Alps via the Wilmot Pass. The views are to die for even before you hit the water!

Your itinerary is flexible and route dictated by the weather and your desire to explore. With around 5 hours of kayaking each day, you’ll get to truly appreciate the expanse and primordial beauty of the fiord.

Our experienced and knowledgeable guides will make sure you see the best of Fiordland. As you explore this wilderness, its hidden waterways and secluded islands, look out for the locals – seals, dolphins and penguins.

If you’re lucky, you might even find yourself paddling in the company of dolphins! In the evening you’ll camp amidst the forest next to a freshwater stream in Hall Arm. Relax along the shore as the long southern twilight descends in the fiord.

Bring your own food – we’ll supply hot drinks and swap stories with your fellow travelers. And as night descends, lie on the beach and spend some time star gazing. The next morning, you’ll explore more of the fiord before heading back under sail (weather permitting) by early afternoon.

The Go Orange kayaking and camping tour showcases the very best of what the Fiordland wilderness has to offer – An incredible experience that will remain with you for a lifetime.

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!

Thanks for your review and picture Verena! Our overnight Kayaking trip is a brilliant way to get to explore Doubtful Sound. Ollie is an awesome guide and loves where he works, this really shows through to his guests :) Glad you had such a beautiful few days!

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!

Beautiful in rain or sunshine

A fabulous experience. Clothing provided keeps you warm and happy even in the heaviest of downpours. Beautiful, magnificent and magical. Can not recommend more highly.
