**Important notes for your Doubtful Sound kayak**
Note regarding weather: Route may vary due to conditions at the time of the tour. Fiordland is a very high rainfall area – we seldom cancel tours due to rain – the rainy days are the some of the most spectacular with mountain mist and a profusion of waterfalls everywhere. Our main concern regarding the weather is strong wind forecasts for the coastal area that can on occasion cause cancellation of tours.
As the kayak cockpit is a fixed size, to ensure “fit” into our kayaks we must impose a weight limit of 115kg. HOWEVER Kayakers who are wider at the hips or who have long legs please call and speak with us to discuss if it will be practical to fit into a kayak.
Children 14 years minimum age – children must have kayaked some distance before. Each child must be traveling with a strong adult (as they will be in a double kayak with parent) and be at least 1.4 metres plus tall and plus at least 45 kg in weight.
