Absolutely Fantastic!

The scenery is simply amazing, the mountains, the ocean, the waterfalls, and the forest are all breathtaking. No matter what the weather is, rain, snow, or sunny it is always a wonderful trip when you visit Milford Sound. Mitre Peak cruises were a great company to go with. Small boats which meant less people, inside viewing and outside along with the friendly commentary and helpful service made this trip extra special.

Great day out

A great day out , had the privilege of several Dolphins giving us a playful display and 2 seals chilling on a rock. And we all so had some snow on our way to the Cruise. One happy family.

Excellent experience. Exceeded my expectations

Mitre peak cruises have smaller boats which makes you feel just that extra bit special. The crew get in close and give fantastic commentary which enhances the fantastic experience you're provided. We had incredible weather! Which was extremely fortunate but I'm certain any day of the year this gorgeous piece of paradise would be wonderful to visit! Highly recommend Mitre Peak Cruises and would love to go again.
