We did the Doubt sound flight and it was the most amazing experience I have ever done!!!! Iv done some cool stuff but that has got to be top of the list!!! Craig was an amazing pilot who was super chill and easy to chat with and made it just that little bit better (Go on a good day)

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. Pleased to hear you enjoyed your flight. Doubtful Sound is a spectacular area and to be able to view it from the air is fantastic.

This was a spur of the moment decision and we are so glad we did this scenic flight around the hilltops of Te Anau. Words cannot express how awesome this experience was. We are still buzzing about it 2 days later! If the score is out of 10 then we would rate this a 12! But TripAdvisor only allows us to give a 5 max. Thank you so much Matt our trusty pilot and the lovely ladies in the office. Shirley and Steve from Rotorua.

What a stunning ride. Just my wife and me plus the pilot. We took the trip over Doubtful & Dusky Sounds. Clear sky over Doubtful and some moody clouds over Dusky so we got the best of both worlds. Our pilot, Matt, was very knowledgeable and a delight to fly with. We were still buzzing the next day. Totally recommend this trip.

Yesterday I went on a flight with southern lakes helicopters around fiordland national park, and what a experience it is! Truely amazing. With a great pilot named Matt, he gave us all amazing commentary with a few stops along the way to get out and stretch the legs. I would definitely recommend flying with sourthen lakes helicopters. Cheers guys I’ll be back for sure.

Trip of a lifetime - there aren't enough adjectives to describe how stunningly beautiful Fiordland is!
We were fortunate enough to have enough time to wait for the weather to clear up. And man was it worth it! We were 2 couples booked for the same 3 hour flight from Dusky across to Doubtful and up to Milford Sound.
It may seem pricey but once you are up in the air, crossing across some much incredible terrain which would otherwise be inaccessible, you know you've made the right choice.
Our pilot Matt was an added bonus - informative, friendly, and most importantly competent! We felt we were in safe hands. He accommodated our requests, hundreds of photo opportunities as well as ticking a bucket list wish to stand at the top of Lake Browne and Browne Falls, named after my grandfather. Matt was happy to accommodate.
And don't forget to order the gourmet picnic lunch! Complete with champagne! It made the whole experience even more delightful - local cheeses, meats, crackers and fruit. It really hit the mark - although I suspect we were all so excited, we had to be reminded to eat!
The whole team at Southern Lakes Helicopters were charming, friendly and helpful, keeping us informed of weather situations and new possible flight dates.
Thank you for an experience we will never forget!
