Nature at its best. Got to the pickup point a little earlier to enjoy the surrounding areas of the jetty, and then the cruise itself. What a journey it was! Gorgeous waterfalls, the beautiful ocean and we were lucky enough to encounter wild dolphins making their way out to the bay. Also saw seals basking in the sun. An extremely memorable trip.
Traveling with Southern Discoveries was great. There was an unexpected hot buffet breakfast which we were not expecting. The cruise was beautiful, some great scenery and our guide was funny and gave great commentary. There was plenty of room on the boat to find your own space to take some great photos along the way. I would highly recommend the early cruise as most of the tourist haven't arrived at Milford Sound yet, so you almost get a private tour :-
Absolutely delightful cruise and luncheon. Professionally organised by very pleasant staff. Captain was proficient in explaining the attractions, and certainly made sure all tourists obtained maximum benefit from the experience. Would certainly do again, and will certainly recommend highly.
one of the highlights of our trip to New Zealand loved every minute
The torrential rains brought out the most amazing waterfall display imaginable. Water falls were everywhere! It looked like rivers of milk streaming down every crack and crevice. Mother Nature was at her finest!

Pretty awesome trip, captain and crew were very friendly and helpful, the ship was large enough to reduce the rocking of the swells and waves, while not being too cavernous. Perfect weather Not that they could control it and the hot tea/coffee was appreciated.
Beautiful scenery and a very comfortable trip.
I took the 9 AM cruise and was surprised that a very good breakfast was provided. I guess I did not read the fine print.
Something that everyone should have on a bucket list
Great people on the boat
Excellent tour. Milford Sound is really pretty, we also saw lots of dolphins and seals
The weather had been awful for the previous 14 hours, torrential rain and wind. But just before our trip it cleared and we were able to see Milford Sound in all its glory. The company provided a nice buffet lunch which we sat down at ate first at a table reserved for us the rest of the trip we were up on deck seeing all the sights. Very good commentary which everyone was able to hear too!
It was excellent!!!
Mostly LOVED the friendly Staffs and Captain. It was Amazing.
Great helpful staff. They slotted me in for 2.00pm trip after I missed my 9.00am early starter.
Picturesque views. Good value. Cannot beat the package.
Found this tour far better priced, adventurous, helpful staff and than the highly publicized, expensive, Doubtful sounds overnight cruise run by The Fiordland Navigator.
Thoroughly enjoyed our trip. The lunch obviously catered more for the Asians, but nevertheless it was a lovely experience.
Second time going with this company so it must be good! Nice comfortable boat and captain gives a good overview of the Sound and even dips into waterfalls to give passengers a fun experience. If you're lucky with the weather it impacts the enjoyment of this tour massively!
great trip and nice
Exiting when stop bellow the water fall
It was the best experience my husband and I have had. The crew was very helpful, We had the Buffet lunch and it was delicious and a lot of. The trip is a wonder of the world. We will be coming back with the family and when the mountains have snow on them. And that will be another experience we will have. I do recommend to for anyone todo this, if only once in your life time.
Beautiful tour of Milford Sound, clean and accommodating crew. It was amazing how close the captain could get to the waterfalls. Knowledgeable about the birds and seals etc. like getting a little history of how the sound was formed. Thanks for a delightful couple hours.
Everything was fine, including the weather. Scenery is outstanding.
