Description

Doubtful Sound flights with Air Milford take you to a more remote area of the South Island’s rugged West Coast. Feel humbled, yet uplifted by the atmosphere of powerful solitude in the presence of superb physical grandeur of New Zealand’s remote Doubtful Sound. Sometimes called “the Sound of Silence” there is a cloistered serenity within Doubtful Sound that is a contrast with its near neighbor, Milford Sound.

The fiord is rich in flora and fauna. It is not uncommon to see New Zealand Fur Seals and in the Penguin breeding season the Fiordland crested penguins can be seen on many of the small islets in the entrance of the fiord.

At 421m deep Doubtful is the deepest of the fiords and is long and winding with three distinct ‘arms’. The distance from Deep Cove to the open sea is around 40.4km. It is also home to New Zealand’s highest waterfall – the Browne Falls at 836m (2,742 ft).

For those wanting a true New Zealand experience and who want to ‘get away from the crowds’, this fly and cruise tour is perfect!
Doubtful Sound is a fabulous wet weather option if Milford Sound is closed due to inclement weather. This is because the scenic flight, which connects with the Doubtful Sound cruise, is not as weather dependent as a flight to Milford Sound.

Our Doubtful Sound flights offer a wonderful opportunity for guests who have already seen Milford Sound and want to explore more of this unique New Zealand environment.
