The One Thing You Don't Want to Miss

Its mountains and cascades are more immediately eye-catching but Doubtful Sound abounds in rich marine life which makes a trip through its waters a special treat. Look overboard for bottlenose dolphins following the boat or turn your eye ashore for lounging fur seals.
