About Us

Upon arrival into Deep Cove, you notice the abundance of water and the effect it has on the landscape. Lush rainforest, towering peaks, and dark brooding waters are waiting for you.

An experience like no other, our Kayak day tour is designed to maximise the time spent exploring on the water of Doubtful Sound. Your Kayak Adventure is the longest kayaking day tour of Doubtful Sound. During your 4 hour paddle you will journey up to 15km following Hall Arm, “The Sound of Silence”.

Your return to Deep Cove is via Water Taxi Cruise, so you aren’t backtracking with your kayaking and covering more distance.

We are a local company showing Doubtful Sound to 10 guests per adventure. This ensures a personal experience is provided by your Kayak Nature Guide.
