We thought that Peter did an excellent job introducing us to whale spotting, watching and took time to explain whale habits, their environment and put us in good positions to take photos. We enjoyed the explanations around earthquakes and road restoration works and it was quite spectacular to land & stop for a very cold but spectacular photo on the top of Mt Fyfe. I wonder if pilots or ground crew have any particular tips to offer relating to photographing with telephoto lenses. Maybe high shutter speeds, Tv, auto ISO. The photos we took where good and reasonably in close but not as sharp as I hoped for. Pretty tricky with moving chopper, sea and whale I guess. Overall 10 out of 10. Thank you. Very memorable!

On our drive up to Milford Sound, we were worried about the weather, as it was super misty and a slight rain. In the end, the weather actually made the whole experience unique as we’ve never imagined the Fjords looking super crazy mysterious before, with the mist blanketing the mountains. Overall, my husband and I enjoyed our honeymoon experience at the Milford Sound.

Amazing cruise with beautiful waterfalls. The staff were vwry lovely and always happy to educate about the history of milford sounds. We even got to see some dolphins which was amazing!!!

Most amazing picturesque scenic views. Cruise was excellent and right on money. Overall 100% satisfaction for the whole trip from Queenstown to Milford Sound.

The boat was great with plenty of viewing locations and the Skipper was very informative and provided memorable experiences by the places he took us.
