A small boat is indeed better. The cruise was able to go places where the bigger ferry couldnt go. The only place where the small size was not good is when the cruise did the turn around at the mouth of the fjord where it meets open sea. We were able to get really close to the falls. Only let down of the trip was the rain

We did the fly-cruise-fly tour & it was amazing. Our pilot was friendly, professional & knowledgeable. We had prefect weather to see the beautiful snow capped mountains. The cruise was smooth & the views were indescribable, just breathtaking. The cruise tour guide provided all the history & information about Milford sound.

The captain of the boat was awesome in his commentary and his safe practice when he took us out to experience the 5 metre swell. He also took us in close to see a fur seal and a massive waterfall. I highly recommend this trip as it was exciting, informative and brilliant views.

Kia Ora Helen, Thank you for the review! Yes, our captains have been sailing in Milford for a long time – they definitely know what they’re doing! We only go into areas of swell when it is safe and comfortable to do so. Ngā Mihi, Mitre Peak Cruises Team

Kia Ora 7Happy07, Thanks for the review! Yes, we don’t sell food on board so we have more windows and seating. Brining a picnic is an excellent idea! Ngā Mihi, Mitre Peak Cruises Team

Had an amazing time, not only on the boat but also the trip there and back with our driver Andy. He is very knowledgeable and has a great sense of humour.
The boat ride was a magical experience, beautiful unspoilt scenery. The waterfalls were spectacular and we got a bit wet from one of them called the Sterling. Unfortunately when I woke the next morning I did not look 10 years younger as the māori myth suggests I would hahaha
Would 150% recommend this trip with Altitude Tours and Mitre Peak 😀
