Doubtful Sound Images and Video

A picture paints a thousand words…

A selection of images are provided below as is a video that was produced by a recent guest on our Southern Secret Doubtful Sound Overnight Cruise.

Idyllic

Disconnect from the world for one night, two days and experience Doubtful Sound.
“There are just a few areas left in the world where no human has ever set foot. That one of them should be in a country so civilized and so advanced as New Zealand may seem incredible, unless one has visited the south-west corner of the South Island. Jagged razor backed mountains rear their heads into the sky. More than 200 days of rain a year ensure not a tree branch is left bare and brown, moss and epiphytes drape every nook. The forest is intensely green. This is big country… one day peaceful, a study in green and blue, the next melancholy and misty, with low cloud veiling the tops… an awesome place, with its granite precipices, its hanging valleys, its earthquake faults and its thundering cascades.”

A beautiful quote about Doubtful Sound from Charles John Lyttelton, 10th Viscount Cobham, Governor-General of New Zealand (1957–1962).
