March 20:  Doubtful Sound

The following day we headed south for more "sounding" -- this time to Doubtful Sound.  Getting to Doubtful Sound is a bit more involved:  first you drive to Manapouri, then take a boat across Lake Manapouri, then a bus across Wilmot Pass, before you finally reach Doubtful Sound.  We took a cruise on Doubtful Sound, from the head of the fiord out to the Tasman Sea and back.  Once again we had great weather.  We saw more wildlife and less people than on Milford Sound -- enjoyed both very much.
