Cruising to Doubtful Sound

Wilderness wonderment

Like the nearby Milford Sound, Doubtful Sound represents one of New Zealand's most incredible locations to experience nature at its most raw and impressive.

The fjords that carve their way through the steep rocks are so incredible that the indigenous Maori people attributed them to a giant stone mason. They could think of nothing else that might have caused them.

While Milford and Doubtful are often confused, the former is far well-known and thus attracts more visitors thanks to the fact it can be accessed from the road. For that truly alone feeling here, you need to hop on a cruise.

It is worth taking plenty of insect repellent if you're visiting Doubtful Sound, as the sandflies and mosquitoes are known to be relentless. However, it is worth enduring the occasional bite for the incredible natural sites you will see rising up out of the cold dark waters. Spectacular indeed.
