Sometimes called the ‘Sound of Silence’ Doubtful Sound is the deepest (421 metres) and second longest (40 kilometres) of the South Island’s fiords.
Visiting here is a much more remote experience than at the sometimes busy Milford Sound. It is your ultimate “digital detox” destination. No Wi-Fi or phone access allows you to immerse yourself in the beautiful nature that surrounds you.
Doubtful Sound has provide me with the opportunity to see dolphins, fur seals and other rare wildlife such as the albatross, penguins, and whales,
To fully experience the beauty and remoteness of Doubtful Sound I spent both days and nights on a boat and it wasn’t uncommon during my stay to see a pod of curious and playful dolphins around the boats at dawn.
So of course the piece of unique New Zealand Ariki jewellery which reminds me of this enchanting region is:
GP887/PO887 Dolphin Pendant in ring
The Dolphin’s playful nature is a reminder that everyone needs to play sometimes just for the sheer joy of it. They remind us to take some time out of our busy lives to experience life like a child does. Our sleek elegant piece of jewellery portraying a playful dolphin embellished with colourful Paua Shell and diving through a ring portrays this sense of freedom.
