Doubtful Sound



Doubtful Sound, the second-largest fjord in New Zealand's Fjordland National Park, is powerfully serene and isolated. To visit, most people take a boat across Lake Manapouri (located 20 minutes from Te Anau), and then a bus over Wilmot Pass before reaching the head of Doubtful Sound. Some people access Doubtful Sound by sea, entering via Deep Cove.

Be on the lookout for the population of bottlenose dolphins that lives in the sound, as well as many other wildlife species, such as seals, penguins and even whales, if you're lucky.
