We flew with Nadia and Sean from Te Anau into Milford Sound in a Cessna - no nerves from me as we glided over the mountains gaining an amazing perspective over the lakes and fjords of the National Park. Great commentary from Sean telling us about the early settlers of the area and the terrain. Our trip was rearranged to... More

Our plans to drive from Milford Sound to Te Anau got roadblocked (literally) by closures due to avalanche risks along the way. Not wanting to miss visiting Milford Sound, we called up Fly Fiordland and they were able to quickly arrange a flight for us. We were quite nervous as we have never flown in such small plans, but pilots... More

We highly recommend this flight. Honestly the most amazing experience - breathtaking 360 views from a totally different perspective. Shaun was a fantastic pilot, very knowledgeable and friendly. Shaun and Toni could not have been more accommodating and so great to book and fly with!

We took the 40min scenic flight over Doubtful Sounds. It was an amazing experience and the pilot gave great commentary along the way. A must do!

We had initially tried for the conventional cruise option through Doubtful Sound which was unfortunately cancelled at last minute due to a road closure. The weather was otherwise holding up so we called Sean at "Fly Fiordland" to see whether it might be possible to arrange a fly over at last minute. Sean was incredibly accommodating and booked us in... More

This has been the highlight of our trip to Fiords. I had got in touch with Shaun for the trip and he organized the Cruise and Coach as well. We were picked up from the hotel and driven to the airport. The take off on board Cessna was smooth, we were 6 souls including Shaun. The views were stunning and... More

The road to Milford Sound has been closed for two days, but I really wanted to see Milford Sound before leaving, so I booked a trip with Fly Fiordland. They were absolutely amazing! They picked me up from outside the isite and took me to the airport. I got in a 4-seater plane with a couple and our pilot Adam.... More

Flew the Fly Fiordland with Shaun - a very experienced and relaxed, informative pilot who took us on an incredible flight over doubtful sound and the fiords. Got motion sick but was well looked after! What an experience and felt like we were in great hands. Very well-priced and worth it!!

A group of 5 of us were planning to walk the Kepler track. Getting back from Te Anau to Queenstown was proving to be a bit of a pain: the buses were at the 'wrong' times, and hiring a car one-way seemed way too much. Enter Fly Fiordland and Shaun. Shaun was the only one who could take 5 of... More
