Great way to get on the lake
This is second time I have visited Queenstown in May and the Earnslaw has been on survey. Any visit here always it is a trip on the lake that beckons me. This time we discovered this cruise and what a great trip. After a morning of pouring rain we had fingers crossed for an OK afternoon. It was glorious afternoon not a cloud in the sky and the lake like a mill pond. A good commentary and friendly service fitted beautifully with the breath taking scenery. We booked online and ordered the wine and cheeseboard as well. A beautiful selection of cheeses, crackers and other nibbles topped off with very drinkable wines.1.5 hour cruise. A highlight was the brief stop to let off a passenger at Mt Nicholas Station- I had never been there before. You are far enough up the lake to see the Glenorchy area in the distance.

Not to be missed.
May 2021
A great experience from start to finish. Pilot Andy looked after us extremely well, the flights were stunning - above the clouds for about half of the first flight, so beautiful, and the commentary both ways was informative. Cruise was excellent. We really enjoyed this trip and would recommend it to anyone. Well done, team, and thank you.

A lifetime treat,,,
Apr 2021
Magnificent scenic flight, especially with different return route; this is quite simply an unforgettable experience, somehow generating closeness and intimacy with these forbidding mountain peaks. Have flown into Queenstown on a number of commercial flights, but even after these inspiring arrivals the scenic flight was a wonderful treat. Pilot Peter seemed knowledgeable and gave a good commentary. The excitement of the landing at Milford it is hard to beat, but (Jucy) cruise is fine, with some awe-inspiring up-closes to the rock cliffs and waterfalls, and comfortable boat. Ok commentary but jokes wear thin after a while, and sometimes hard to hear what was being said. Then another flight....just wonderful. So glad we did this.

The scenic flight was beautiful and the cruise experience was ideal as there was plenty of space for everyone - it was not cramped or crowded. You will see the most stunning scenery on this tour! All staff including the pilot Andy and captain Kahurangi were welcoming and friendly. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone.

Reconnecting with wild beauty
Feb 2021
WOW! Mind blown.. the pilot Katie is so professional and relaxed, I always felt safe. The views are indescribable. She flew so close to the mountains, there's no better way to see my own backyard really. Living in Queenstown, I have never taken the opportunity to go to Milford but it was such a perfect day trip to see and feel the wild of this beautiful country I call home.

Incredible scenic flight with the best Pilot Katie
Feb 2021
It was such an amazing day and unforgettable experience flying with Katie to Milford sound round trip and cruise. Katie was such a skilled pilot her flight was so smooth and you feel safe ad relax during the journey. It was wonderfull sunny day with stunning mountain view, and the knowledge shared by Katie on the mountain and lake, it was like taking you into a amazing real life story telling on the history of the land and feels like you experience the life of the landscape, glacier, and Aotearoa in your mind vision. Definitely recommended, amazing experience that you will remembered for the rest of your life.
