A great day on the water with guide Mark and skipper Napier. Apart from being a top bloke Mark is such a knowledgable enthusiast and champion of the Doubtful Sound environment - drifting and paddling beneath the vegetation-covered sheer rock walls you will have a more intimate experience amongst the scenic grandeur. The accompanying boat makes a real difference to the experience. Finish off with a swim in the Sound!

Kayaking doubtful sound was a fantastic day, made better by our guides' tips and organisation - drifting under waterfalls and learning about the incredible ecosystem of this area. Specifically, our guide Mark was knowledgeable, calm and friendly and him and skipper Napier made our trip really special. The trip was seamlessly organised and little touches like muffins further contributed to us having a really wonderful trip.

We will remember and cherish our day for a long time. It is hard to put words to the feeling of paddling through the towering green cliff-face walls on shimmering, deep, clear water. We were also astonished to have a pod of dolphins come upon us and relished our swim off the boat post-kayak. The experience is extremely well run - thanks to the team for the fun and professional support. Further, this is a boat-assisted kayak trip, which means there are plenty of toilet opportunities and one doesn’t have to skimp on what one brings.

Our guide Mark was awesome, so knowledgeable. We had a great group of fellow kayakers, perfect conditions and saw so much from a unique perspective. A day out you won't forget, thank you!

We enjoyed every single part of this multi-experience day. On the boat ride across Lake Manapouri we saw amazing sights in every direction as it was packed with hills, islands and things to look at. As we drove up and over the steep Wilmot Pass we learnt about the construction of the Manapouri power station and we gasped at the splendid view into Deep Cove. The kayaking in Hall Arm of Doubtful sound was smashing. We tranquility of kayaking gently through the sound getting such an up close look at the plants, geology and ecology of the sounds. Mark, our accomplised guide, ensured our safety at all times and relished telling us the natural history of the place with passion and encyclopedic knowledge. We would do it again for sure. This is the Doubtful Sounds trip to take!
