WHAT TO EXPECT
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.
Your itinerary is flexible and the 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 swap stories with your fellow travellers. 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
