Find Flora and Fauna in New Zealand’s Fiordlands

Tucked away at the end of the world is a natural wonder you have to see to believe. Rich in history and impressive landscapes, Doubtful Sound is three times longer than the more familiar Milford Sound, New Zealand.

Named by Captain Cook in 1770, who avoided the area as he was “doubtful” whether winds would be sufficient to safely blow his ship back to sea, Doubtful Sound's beauty is dramatic, yet humble.

Nestled deep within Fiordland National Park and one of the world’s last great wilderness areas, discover the many faunae that call this awe-inspiring land home. Bottlenose dolphins, fur seals, and even penguins can be seen playing and hunting by those passing through the fiord.

A narrow maze protected by the surrounding podocarp forest and majestic mountains, you'll want to take every cruising moment in to soak in its scenery. A delight for all senses, hearing its many cascading waterfalls—The Hall Arm, The Browne Falls, and Helena Falls at the areas Deep Cove, is almost as beautiful as seeing them (which you’ll also get to do!).

Aside from flowing waterfalls and enchanting birdsong, Doubtful Sound is a peaceful haven perhaps best described by its Native Māori name, Patea—the "Place of Silence.”
