Cloudi day kayak in Doubtful Sound

It was a bit of a trek to get to Doubtful sound – an early pickup to Manapouri, a 45 minute boat ride across the lake and then a bus ride on a gravel road. I shouldn’t have had that flat white before we set off…! The day was gorgeous again and they kayak was amazing. The fiord was so calm and edged with high peaks covered in tree ferns, beech trees, moss, and waterfalls. I was in good company – 5 thankfully bilingual and fun Germans were on the trip and we were led by a charming and knowledgeable guide named Cloudi. I distantly saw a penguin and seals even!
