Overview

Get a taste of Doubtful Sound in this 3-hour kayaking trip starting from Deep Cove, offering you an opportunity to experience a small, interesting part of an immense wilderness area and fiord in the heart of Fiordland National Park.

Go on a cruise across the scenic Lake Manapouri, then board a coach that will carry you across Wilmot Pass and down into Deep Cove located on the other side.

You will be joining a small group of kayakers led by an experienced guide in this 3-hour kayaking trip out on the fjord, paddling in Deep Cove, Rolla Island and into Olphert Cove before returning.

What to wear when kayaking

Please wear your swimsuit or kayaking underwear layer beneath warm clothes/waterproof jacket on pick-up (makes changing into paddling gear easier and quicker). The best way to carry your other gear to the launch point is in a backpack.
