Go Orange - Kayak and Cruise Milford Sound

An experience beyond compare, combining two of the best Milford Sound experiences in one day, enjoy a leisurely morning kayak followed by a nature cruise on the fiord in the afternoon.

Highlights

  • Small friendly groups (8 kayakers per guide)
  • Top quality sea kayaking equipment
  • 2 hour cruise of Milford Sound included
  • Experienced kayak guides (carry group safety and emergency equipment)
  • Café and bar on board providing fresh, local meals and snacks

With an engaging and professional guide and small group sizes you’ll explore the spectacular Lady Bowen Falls. Experience the humbling power of floating amidst such vast and stunning panoramas as you sit in your sea kayak getting up close to Sinbad Gully – the valley of New Zealand's most photographed mountain of Mitre Peak. You’ll learn about the Sinbad Sanctuary Project and the special native wildlife that make this area their home.

As you paddle along the shoreline view the rainforest in beautiful detail. 2 - 2 ½ hours of kayaking is involved in this relaxing morning paddle, the tranquil waters make this an ideal place to paddle for both locals and first-time visitors.

Your kayaking adventure is followed by a 2-hour boat cruise of Milford Sound out to the Tasman Sea and return, see the pristine wilderness and experience panoramic views as you’ve never seen before.

Our newly refurbished Milford Haven is home to the Haven XPA on tap, custom-created by our very own Canyon Brewing, delightfully accompanied by Mt Rosa wine amongst other options. Complimented by fresh, local, delicious snack and meal options with comfortable outward-facing seats, this is the go-to boat to enjoy the epic and powerful surrounds.

Best way to see Milford sound!

White possibly the best experience ever! There's nothing like sitting on a kayak whilst the sun is slowly coming up over the beautiful Milford sound. You get so close to waterfalls, and the shear rock face! Our guide nacho was amazing, he was very knowledgeable, great photographer for us and just a good laugh, he really made the trip a great experience. Can't recommend this enough for everyone! Thanks again guys!

Amazing company

We had a fantastic time on the kayaking and boat cruise tour with Go Orange. The guides were friendly and knowledgeable and genuinely felt like they loved their jobs. We would definitely recommend this company to anyone who wants to visit Milford Sound!

Fantastic experience

Had a wonderful time on the kayak and cruise. The kayak is a great way to see the splendour of Milford Sound up close, and we even had a seal swim playfully right next to our kayaks! Our kayak guide (Josh or "Nachos") was friendly, informative and made sure us first time kayakers had a comfortable but exciting experience. The 2.5hr kayak length was perfect and the cruise was a good way to relax and see the further parts of the Sound after our morning workout. Highly recommend this experience for anyone going to Milford!

We were wet but loved it none the same :)

We were a bit doubtful as when turned up it was a very very wet day in Milford but our guide Jeff was awesome and made the very wet trip so much fun, full of fun facts about the region we really enjoyed the kayaking and the rain even cleared for our afternoon cruise which was awesome as the views were like nothing else you have ever seen!!! Would def recommend, so well organized!!

Milford 2 different ways

Milford Sound is such an iconic place that you need to immerse in it and see it from different aspects. The 2.5 hour kayak followed by the 2 hour cruise looked to be and indeed wax a great way to do that. The kayak trips get you up & personal with the water. The cruise let's you see more and in a relaxed way. Perfect.
