What a great time we had. From the booking lady at the counter when we first arrived to the captain and the fella that walked around answering questions etc. We arrived for our early cruise at 8.50am. We had stayed the previous night just past Lake Te Anau so we were closer to Milford Sound as all the accommodation was booked in Milford Sound. Arrived after a drive in the dark, parked in the park, walked along a nice easy walkway and booked in. There were not many of us on this particular cruise. Off we went. Coffee and Tea etc available. (We had our own mugs so took a nice drink away with us). As it had been raining the night before we had a lot of wonderful waterfalls to see and even go under. We saw seals and it was great knowing we were out in the Tasman sea. Lots of history was told to us. Definitely an experience not to be missed. No dolphins for us to see alas, but a great trip well worth doing

Took the day tour from Te Anau. Highly recommended as the drive is half the fun, so was good not to do it ourselves. Driver was great - super knowledgeable, friendly and safe. There were also lots of places to stop and take in the views and grab some photos. The boat tour was also fantastic. Was good to be on one of the smaller boats - the staff were easily accessible to answer questions and it was also easy to move around to get good views. We went on a very rainy day which was brilliant for seeing waterfalls, but make sure you take good waterproof clothes so you don't have to worry about getting wet!

Tania our tour guide on the bus was so friendly, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and entertaining. She made the 3-4 hour journey to Milford feel so manageable with lots of stops and interesting facts. The van was comfortable and spacious and the glass ceiling made all the difference. It also had charging ports and for the areas with phone service there was working wifi. The boat was perfect for viewing the sound with plenty of open and covered viewing areas. I could not have chosen a rainier day (100% and thunderstorms) and it was still worth every penny.
