Doubtful Sound Wilderness Cruise from Te Anau

Te Anau, New Zealand

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Superb trip and well organised. Coach pick up from hotel on time at 7.30am. Weather looked bleak on first leg but cleared to beautiful day on the Sound. Do all NZ guides go on the same training course? Commentary a bit stilted. Power station trip OK not a lot of info from guide but trip on Sound absolutely brilliant. Lunches can be provided by the tour company - we took our own but stuff was available on the boat. High speed catamaran looked brand new! Best bit was when they turned the engines and power off so there was absolute silence. Of course one or two people had to spoil it by talking! Saw some dolphins, seals and an albatross. Went right out to Tasman Sea. Everyone says this is better than Milford Sound.

My Review
Really well organised. Coach ride to gorge along Skippers was awesome - not sure I'd like to drive it myself even in a 4WD let alone a coach towing inflatables. First part very pedestrian but gave guide chance to 'train up' the crew. Never done rafting before but lack of experience no prob. Most rapids tame but the level 4 bits were good fun. The guides really seemed on top of everything in case of any misfortunes but there weren't any. Most of the time it was a very pleasant journey down the gorge. Would like to do some more rafting now.
