Great trip. Enjoy the commentary by the skipper, lots of,tales to tell plus local history. Also good stories about th people we dropped off mail and supplies to. The boat was very stable, even in some of the rough stuff close to Cook Straight. Well worth doing.

Great day out. After spending nearly a month travelling around NZ my sister rates this as the best day of our trip and we had many good days. This was my second trip to Milford Sound in the last couple of years and I really enjoyed it again.
Doing what: Milford Sound Cruise and Optional Coach Tour
A very well run trip with the cruise it self very good, with the captain well versed in how to get the best for virtually everyone. The cruise was extremely enjoyable, seeing a lot of wildlife including Dolphins, a fjord land penguin and a number of different types of albatross. I would highly recommend this trip. The very sunny dry weather did help make the trip even better but, the tour company were great.

Mathew was very knowledgeable of the area and shared many entertaining stories. We enjoyed the tea and sword fights.
This was better than I expected. I would've love to do it again. Definitely a must do if you're in Queenstown. Breath-taking views and the most fun you'll ever have!!! I give it 10 stars and I'm not an easy person to please, so take it from me!!!!
We had perfect weather, a fast boat and an amazing driver. The boat skimmed over rocks and sediment in just a few inches of water and came so close to cliffs we were sure we were going to crash into them. We screamed, we yelled and had a wonderful time. We think this is the best jetboat ride in Queenstown and highly recommend it.
Great trip! Milford Sound is amazing! I recommend staying and doing the overnight as it is a long drive if you are coming from Queenstown. I don't think I would have enjoyed it as much if I tried to return to Queenstown the same day. The staff were wonderful, the food was great and it was fun meeting people from other places. Beware of the sand flies, they are everywhere!
Seriously wonderful scenery, great accommodation and good guides.
I went as a single and found it pretty well wall to wall couples. Suggest you take a friend or just go for a day trip.
A beautiful location with the Remarkables as a back drop. Walter Peak Farm is a very pretty place and the food and service for the Dinner was very good as usual. We have been before and it does get busy.
I would go again, the next time we are in Queenstown.
It was a great experience!

For the LOTR fans this tour is a must. Our guide Jean was very knowledgeable and and we were taken to most of the film locations of the movies. it was an enjoyable tour covering up to fifty kilometers of country road. We even had the costumes and swords for our photo sessions.Highly recommended.
Cruise was lovely, and the meal was Absolutely fabulous! Roast meats of all kinds, salmon, prawns, anti-pasto, cheeses, salads, desserts. Wonderful food, as much as you wanted. Highlight of our trip.
Great time! The guides, Lily and Naomi, were great - helpful, friendly, professional! I had only ziplined one other time and this was different in that the guides did the breaking for you so less stress, more safety, and more carefree focus on the thrill. Thee was a variety of lengths and height drops on the 6 lines and a long hike between the last two lines. A bit muddy given recent rain, but the views were spectacular. They boast the last line is the steepest n the world, and my inexperience prevents any dispute from me. The tour does not include the gondola ride up. I highly recommend you include this tour in your trip to Queenstown.

Highly recommend this operator. Friendly efficient and professional. Comfortable vessel and good value for money. The ships cove trip gives a good overall intro to the Queen Charlotte Sound area in comfort and convenience. Recomend staying at the Beachcomber motel/hotel about 100 meters from the wharf.

My second time on the shotover Jet and it didn't disappoint, the driver was great and we had a fun time.
Excellent jet boat ride! Our driver, Wayne was simply great. We are in our mid 60's, and had no problem with the sudden shifts and swerves. It was so much fun that we almost took another ride only 19 but were constrained by time. We thoroughly recommend this ride.PS wear a beanie or scarf if its cold, because you will end up with cold, wet hair.
