This trip isn't cheap, but it has got to be one of the highlights of any visit to New Zealand's South Island. The trip is actually a bit "might be on, might be off" due to the weather, which can be quite bad at times. A small twin-engine plane took us to Milford - piloted by a man who really knew what he was doing - thank goodness! A very skilled pilot & very knowledgeable about the area. The cruise was breathtaking, & we were lucky enough to see dolphins closeup where the Sound enter the sea. If you can afford it, the trip does everything driving to Milford would do & more, but takes 40 minutes rather than 5 hours each way! Worth thinking about if time is short!
