What You Can Expect
Nestled in the World Heritage listed Fiordland National Park, Milford Sound is described as the 'Eighth Natural Wonder of the World'. The only way to truly appreciate the splendor of this area is to enjoy a spectacular Milford Sound cruise.
A cruise is the perfect way to discover the beautiful scenery of this famous fiord, including the incredible Mitre Peak, which at a height of 1,692 meters (5,560 feet), is one of the highest mountains in the world to rise directly from the ocean floor, as well as stunning waterfalls that crash down into the serene waters. Wildlife such as dolphins, seals and penguins are often seen in their natural environment. The Milford Sound cruise along the southern side of Milford Sound out to the Tasman Sea and return up the northern side, stopping at all points of interest along the way, including Bowen Falls, Stirling Falls and Seal Point.
It went like clockwork as planned. Plenty of room on the boat. Good food but the word is, get your meal as soon as it is available. They claimed to have run out of bread rolls when my wife got there but we saw them later being set up for a later cruise. Not helpful.
We got close to waterfalls, penguins and seals. (something the smaller boats were claiming they had an advantage on - Not so).
Tip: We heard the day before that the road was blocked. Don't believe it until you see the sign on the road as you are driving there. We heard the same thing last time and it was clear in the morning.
What a fantastic trip. The boat was well appointed and great soup for a cold morning. We had a brilliant clear day. Our skipper was humorous and very informative. Great value.
