We "did" this trip in 2013 and nothing has changed. It is still a "must do". Kerri at Radfords in Te Anau purchased the tickets for us. She suggested this smaller ship because it could get up closer to the penguins and seals for photos....More

Nice tour on nice clean with much smaller groups than other cruises. Good and informative staff that showed off bits that larger vessels couldn't go. A bit cold in the breeze.

This is the best cruise here, smaller and private than larger boats and you get in very close to waterfalls and watch out for penguins and seals!

Loved our tour with Mitre Peak. The crew was fantastic and the tour fantastic - enjoyed thoroughly! Free tea/coffee and boat warm inside. Saw seals, dolphins and some penguins swimming (luck if the draw i realise)

On the way we just stopped at mirror lakes and Upper Ellington. We got an early boat so as to miss the tour buses and this worked well, as we came off the boat lots of buses arriving. We then took our time going back in the... More
