Dusky Sound is a fiord within Fiordland National Park (New Zealand). Access to Dusky Fjord is by sea or air only. No roads reach the coast at this point, but Dusky Track stretches to fjord's upper reaches from lakes Hauroko and Manapouri. Dusky, Doubtful Sound and Milford Sound are among NZ's most-popular cruise ship travel destination.
One of the most complex fiord systems on this coast, Dusky Fjord is also one of the NZ's biggest, with length 40 km (25 ml) and max width 8 km (5 ml). Resolution Island is located to the north of fjord's mouth. Its Five Fingers Peninsula protects fjord's mouth from northwest. Along island's east coast, Acheron Passage links Dusky with Breaksea Sound (to the north).
The largest islands in Dusky Fjord are Long Island, Cooper Island and Anchor Island. Fjord's upper reaches are steep-sided. Region's high precipitation results in numerous scenic waterfalls. Wildlife includes dolphins, seals, occasionally large whales (southern right whales and humpback whales). Seaforth River is the longest of the many small waterways flowing into the fjord. Dusky Sound is designated "Important Bird Area" as breeding site for Fiordland penguins.
