Desfrute de um cruzeiro de duas horas atravessando as águas profundas de Milford Sound, situado em Fiordland. O cruzeiro irá levá-lo além do farol de St Anne e até o Mar de Tasman. Guias informativos indicarão os destaques panorâmicos ao longo do caminho, como Bowen Falls (cataratas de 160 metros até o mar), Sinbad Gully (um exemplo clássico de um vale suspenso), o Monte Pembroke coberto de neve e o inspirador Pico Mitre, que se ergue a 1692 metros acima do fundo do oceano.
It was a very wet day when we went but that was good as we got to see lots of waterfalls. Our captain got us very close to the waterfalls and we got to see a few seals. It was a lovely way to spend a few hours.
It was well organised and a pleasant trip with spectacular views. The commentary was good. We were also lucky with the weather the day we went. Suggestion is that you can do more with the coffee bar options and maybe even have it manned if it makes sense....
We loved this tour because it was on the smallest boat, which made it more flexible and close-up to waterfalls. Also we booked the first tour of the day, which meant it wasn't full, so there was much room to move around on the boat. And luckily, we had gorgeous weather, so it was pretty perfect!
Had booked ahead but we missed our boat. Recommend to allow an extra 30 minutes if you drive to be on the safe side.
The young man at check in was terrific. Gave us a jaffa and a she'll be right and we were on the next boat within a hour with no extra charge. We had beautiful weather and got in close to all the highlights. The driver gave very informative commentary.
I had understood no food or drink or the boat apart from the complimentary tea and coffee but that actually meant none served. Passengers are allowed to bring their own and eat on the boat which is nice if you are going out around lunchtime.
What a great day out, we booked with Mitre Peak cruises because they were a smaller boat and because all the tourist buses went on the larger vessels, Great tip from a friend who previously went on this cruise, Great boat with lots of viewing areas and staff were very friendly.
We went on a day when a storm came through which showed another side to Milford Sound, all the mountains were waterfalling which made our trip memorable, Could not recommend this trip enough with Mitre Peak Cruises
The day of our trip to Milford Sound it had rained continuously for over 12 hours and continued right throughout our cruise. In total 175mm of rain was deposited in Fiordland. However, this in no eay detracted from the beauty and majesty of the wonderful sights we were privileged to see. If anything it enhanced our cruise as the skipper of the boat told us that the waterfalls on one side of the Sound were only there because of the rain. Unfortunately, we were only on a little boat and the skipper had to turn it around earlier in the cruise than normal, thereby not making it into the Tasmin Sea. The weather being as it was, this was a good decision!
