Go Orange - Kayak Milford Sound

Don’t just look up at Milford Sound, immerse yourself at sea level. Let Go Orange help you explore one of the most spectacular places on earth, from the water...


  • Get a unique perspective of the iconic Milford Sound by kayak
  • Paddle around mighty mountains, cascading waterfalls and spectacular scenery
  • Enjoy a small, personalised group tour with expert guide
  • Watch for dolphins and the rare Fiordland Crested Penguin along the way
  • Visit a secluded beach to have lunch

Go Orange proudly present an experience like no other.

Seeing Milford from a cruise sure makes you feel small, but seeing it from a kayak is a whole new story. Get ready for the trip of a lifetime as you are joined by an experienced guide and a small group of kayakers for a fun and intimate experience surrounded by the majestic Fiords as we expertly guide you through the spectacular and iconic Milford Sound.

Nothing beats the perspective you will experience as you kayak along the walls of mighty mountains and out toward the open ocean, inches away from waterfalls cascading down from mountaintop glaciers to the ocean.

Make sure to have your camera ready as dolphins and the rare Fiordland Crested Penguin can on occasion be spotted! We'll visit a secluded beach and enjoy lunch as you soak up the breath-taking atmosphere of Milford Sound (weather dependant) before your return paddle back to base.

We challenge you to delve deeper, go further than the average experience and Go beyond with us.
