Absolutely amazing experience, kayaking in the gorgeous Doubtful Sound. Our wonderful tour guide, Ollie, made sure everyone felt safe and comfortable and tailored our day around us. He had lots of local knowledge and made the trip entertaining and enjoyable. Go Orange provides all the gear you need to kayak, and the boat trip and bus ride to get there are really enjoyable and scenic parts of the trip. Highly recommended - our teenagers said it was the best day of our holiday.

We were extremely lucky to have amazing calm, cloudy weather on our trip into doubtful sound. Malcolm, the bus driver on the way over Wilmot pass was great, sharing a lot of knowledge, some good humour and photo stops. We were on a day trip kayaking, and the scenery was ridiculously beautiful. Ollie, our guide, was incredibly knowledgeable and there was no question he couldn't answer. He was also really friendly and made the day so much fun. We were lucky to make good ground and experience the beauty and the silence of the sound. We would highly recommend this trip!

We have recently returned from yet another professional and well organised kayak trip with Go Orange. This time, the one day, Kayak trip on Doubtful Sound. Even before the kayaking began, it was a great adventure, getting the boat across Lake Manapouri and taking the educational ride over Wilmot pass. Don’t be put off by the effort to get there. Doubtful Sound is an amazing place - remote, and pristine. It’s remoteness is what makes it all the more special. The scenery is just breathtaking, and kayaking on the sound is such a fabulous way to experience it. We were lucky to enjoy calm waters and a sighting of three Fiordland crested penguins. Thanks to Ollie for your professional guiding, education, humour and keeping us safe. Also, thanks again to Go Orange for helping to make this an unforgettable experience!

I was very lucky with the weather when I went on this tour, calm when we started (so could get used to steering the kayak and then apart from the last 30 minutes we had the wind at our backs. AJ our guide was fantastic, very knowledgeable of both the wildlife and area. He also set a good pace for us and brought us to some great areas. We were fortunate that the conditions allowed us to get to all areas. I have to say the scenery was breathtaking and we also got to see some Fiordland penguins swimming near us early in the day, the water was flat calm at the time which helped make it real easy to spot them. Overall a fantastic experience

Go Orange really exceeded my expectations with this trip. They are so organized! You start with a ferry ride, followed by a bus ride to the kayak launch. They supply you with all the gear you need. Everyone gets matched up in small groups with an instructor (Brody was awesome!) who takes you out and shows you some of the prettiest parts of the sound. It's really so, so beautiful and peaceful. It's a great workout and you might be a little sore after, but totally worth it!
