, then we'll sail along the short connecting strait of Pendulo Reach, reaching Thompson Sound through the narrow passageway that will lead us to the sea.
Here's the entrance to the fjord:

Doubtful Sound


Now we'll turn left and sail across the strait toward Thompson Sound:

We met a pleasure boat in the fjord - our "Princess" has an impressive look against the narrowness of the rocks!

Here's another landslide:
