Hadn,t been to milford in years, but had a nephew over from the uk and decided to drive through on a saturday . The drive i found to be spectacular even though it was rainy until we actually go to Milford sound itself. Right from the time we checked in at the cruise milford desk at the visitor terminal we knew this was going to be a special experience.The staff were so attentive and personable. The boat was not large , but appeared to be very well maintained and just the right size to nudge into the waterfalls we encountered as we motored out to the mouth of the sound and back. The captain on the pa gave a really good and informative commentary, just the right ammounmt of info, pleasant and easy to understand, without talking too much or corny jokes which i have experienced on similar excursions overseasw Well done to all the crew., it was a quality experience that both my nephew won,t forget.

Wow! Everything on this cruise was truly awesome... the information given with a great sense of humour, floating in under the waterfall, watching the dolphins play with their fish catch and the beautiful weather. The experience provided by a small NZ company is truly unique.

Amazing experience. Would highly recommend. Gorgeous drive in among the mountains, easy parking ($25) and friendly check in. Our captain Hamish was a character with awesome humour injected into the commentary. Views were breathtaking. Endless access to coffee/tea and biscuits was a nice touch. We were lucky to get a cloudless day but I’ve heard it’s stunning in any weather!

Our tour guide Kraig. With a K was amazing. Fun guy and had a lot of local knowledge. Kept us constantly informed and just generally made the day uplifting. The cruise it self was also a great experience. The boat was immaculate. Such a beautiful place to visit. Would do again in a heartbeat.
