Overview

See the sheer cliffs of Milford Sound from the air and water on a 4.5-hour tour from Queenstown by sightseeing plane and catamaran. Fly over Fjordland National Park, part of a UNESCO World Heritage Centre landscape, then touch down at Milford Sound for a cruise with lunch and drinks served on board. This 4.5-hour tour is perfect for photography and wildlife watching, and hotel pickup and drop-off from Queenstown hotels is included.
  • 4.5-hour Milford Sound tour from Queenstown
  • Travel by sightseeing plane and catamaran
  • Enjoy fantastic aerial views
  • See native wildlife in a pristine environment
  • Lunch and drinks served on board
  • Once-in-a-Lifetime Experience
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off in Queenstown
Start with 12pm pickup at your centrally-located accommodations in Queenstown, then head to the airport for a scenic flight to Milford Sound. The pilot will point out key landmarks and topographical features on the way to the coast, where you’ll land at the head of the glacially-carved fjord.
Board a catamaran boat for a cruise on Milford Sound: with room for 150 passengers, the catamaran is smaller than many Milford Sound boats, so you can get closer to the cliff walls and waterfalls, including the spectacular Stirling Falls. Wilderness guides will be available during the cruise, and you’re welcome to head to the bridge of the boat to meet the skipper and get a captain’s view of the dramatic fjord. Keep your eyes on the water throughout the tour, as it’s common to see fur seals, dolphins, and many kinds of birds along the way, and the rare, Fjordland crested penguin can be spotted in spring and autumn. Lunch, coffee, and tea will be served during the cruise.
Following the Milford Sound cruise, meet the pilot for the return flight to Queenstown, with spectacular views of the landscape in the constantly changing mid-afternoon light. This tour concludes with drop-off at your Queenstown hotel.

Loved the flight, not quite as good on the boat. Jim our pilot was excellent, reassuring for those with a weak stomach or of nervous disposition flying in a small fixed wing plane. Sadly, part of the trip was ruined by the rudeness of a Chinese passenger - enough said.

Amazing experience. More than just a taxi ride to Milford Sound, the views were stunning and managed to see some seals and dolphins along the way.

The beauty of the scenery is beyond description. NZ is an amazing country and this region is spectacular. The pilot was cordial and professional as well as the rest of the staff. In general, everything was exceptional. Thank you for such a great service.

Our flight was breathe taking! We did not get to do the cruise due to getting socked in by clouds. They refunded us in full for the cruise which was a very professinal thing to do considering it was a weather caused cancellation. Our pilot was very knowlegable and safe. We would definitely reommend this tour!

Wegen schlechtem Wetter ausgefallen! Da kann man natürlich nichts machen. Absage lief aber nicht gut, Rückzahlung des Geldes hat extrem lange gedauert. Das liegt aber wohl an Viator.
