Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Highlight of the trip - would definitely recommend if you do the Milford Sound Cruise with Southern Discoveries. We saw black coral, lots of different fish and an eagle ray! Felt like we were on a diving trip!

    Authentic old tunnel. A bit claustrophobic for some. An amazing task completed with picks and shovels. I wish the exit on the Milford side was still the home of the cheeky Kea!

    Absolutely surreal trip! Boat was state of the art and very tidy, views were stunning. The staff were super knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour (even despite the dad jokes). Having only half capacity made the cruise much more personable, would recommend to all!

    Our most favourite excrusion to date ❤️ loved the flights, our pilot Muddy was very professional, personable, he was reassuring and made sure everyone onboard we're comfortable and enjoyed the experience. He made us feel safe in his capable hands.

    The view from up above was STUNNING, the flight paths were breaktaking, this was the highlight of my trip.

    Once we landed it was a quick easy bus ride to the dock to board the boat for the cruise through Milford sounds.
    Absolute majestic beauty, we enjoyed the cruise and the commentary onboard was awesome, the hot drinks were a welcome treat to keep you warm.
    Sit back and marvel at natures beauty, loved the cruise we had perfect weather conditions that made it feel magical.

    Highly reccomend flying there as the beauty from up above is phenomenal ❤️

    Friendly, professional, laid-back crew. Well-organised, gear in good condition. Beautiful and unique way to experience Fiordland, seeing rare black coral and hundreds of crayfish! The wall-dives were spectacularly rich in colour, amazing macro life + larger species too!

    So glad we decided to take the overnight cruise through Milford Sound.
    A beautiful boat, welcoming staff, great local food and wine.
    The cabins are well designed, with comfortable beds, powerful shower ( I would agree the loo needs a shelf) nice linens and beautiful views from your cabin
    A great experience to cruise through the sound, see the waterfalls, kayak, have a hot tub on the upper deck and all so leisurely.
    The staff went out of their way to make this a very special trip.
    Thank you Jimmy, Liv, Leish and Chris, ( sorry for the crew I have not mentioned).
    It was a very memorable trip and highly recommended.
    We will be singing your praises.
