Milford Sound is so beautiful. One of the best trips ever. By doing the cruise, under water observatory and the kayak we got to spend quite a bit of time and really got the full experience. Very friendly helpful informative guide. Anyone can do the kayak with the great launching platform that lifts and lowers you into and out of the water. Bonus great picnic lunch bag provided to each of us. The water is so crystal clear and you get to paddle right up to the sides of the fiords. Totally recommend whole experience is breathtaking from start to finish. Bonus of seeing dolphins and fur seals also.
The cruise was nice and perfectly relaxing. Looking back the alpine background as you paddle towards the peninsula gives a unique tranquility base. The guide is very knowlegeable about the wildlife and the environment. I would not have appreciated a lot of local knowledge and fieldcraft survival if she did not show us. The guide looked after not only our comfort and safety but also in making sure the whole trip was recorded in digital photo without a charge. It very unique experience worth the time and the price.
It was beautiful to be on the water in the kayaks that were easy to paddle. The scenery and wildlife spectacular. The guides were fun friendly and informative in all aspects of the trip.
Well run, great commentary and helpful crew. Stand out was seeing a pod of orca! The kayaking experience was great!!
An enjoyable trip and easy level with great guide Callum! Some lovely views too! Thank you.
