Half-Day Milford Sound Flight and Cruise from Queenstown

See Milford Sound’s soaring cliffs and waterfalls on a spectacular trip that explores Fiordland National Park by air and water. Combining a sightseeing flight and cruise—with included transportation from your hotel—is a great way to take in the vast scale of the region's alpine lakes, fjords, and glaciers. After touching down in Milford Sound, cruise the entire length in a boat for spotting wildlife and snapping photos.

Absolutely one of the best experiences. I’m a nervous flyer but not any more. I felt so relaxed and calm in their company that I asked to sit up front on the way back. The views, pick up from your hotel, boat with reserved seating for their clients where all excellent. This is the way to see Milford Sound, truely is an amazing well run business with such care and compassion for what they do. Don’t think about flying with anyone else!

What a way to visit / see the surrounding environment on the way to Milford sound. The flight allowed us to be able to fully appreciate the marvels that mother nature has created around this area that you would otherwise not have know existed from a car / bus ride. All the staff were very friendly and helpful along with the pilots being informative while providing commentary before and during the flight. A locally owned and operated company with a modern fleet. Thanks for the experience.

We decided to treat ourselves to a trip to Milford Sound while staying in Queenstown. We chose to fly down with Air Milford and we weren’t disappointed. The staff were great and friendly - picking us up from our hotel. The flight was awesome, definitely better than sitting on a bus especially when time is limited. I even got to play co pilot for the first part of the trip. We couldn’t fault Air Milford and would definitely recommend them. A great experience.
