Milford sounds trip was excellent. The Captain and his crew member personalised the trip. Captains commentary was very informative. I particularly enjoyed going out to the heads and going under the waterfall-sure we got wet and cold but well worth it.

We had most magical day driving from Te Anau to Milford Sound. Then taking afternoon crouse. The boat had plenty of space inside, where is was nice and warm. And plenty of space outside on the decks. Stuff was very friendly. Commentary was interesting and fun. And the view was out of this world! It was a highlight of our holiday!

Best. Cruise. Ever.

Allthough the weather happened to be perfect and only couple of passengers on the boat, it’s not the reason why in rating this cruise the best. First of all, the boat is awesome. New, clean, spacious catamaran. Second, the captain Hamish. He was the best. It was the best cruise i’ve ever been, crew was great, no rush, took even a little detour and get to go to open sea, funny stories and interesting facts about Milford Sound, and relaxed atmosphere. Big recommendation to all!
