    Pleasant comfortable boat cruise

    We were lucky to have scored the much larger new boat in their fleet. Plenty of room in all areas of the boat with nobody fighting for a view. Fantastic day at a reasonable cost.

    Milford Sound Cruise SouthernDiscovery

    Felt this cruise was excellent value for money. Crew friendly, commentary great, unexpected cooked breakfast very well received. It certainly helped that the skies were clear and the water calm. An added bonus was the humpback whale performing for us and the seals we saw on the rocks. Another bonus was the little rare fiordland penguins.

    Milford Sounds with buffet lunch

    What a great trip! The food was very well prepared and tasty and gets served as soon as we left from the harbour. The service on the boat was excellent and the information provided by the captain was very informative. The trip through Milford Sounds was wonderful!! The magnificent mountains rising directly from the sea and snow caps is something that has to be seen above everthing else.

    Fantastic!

    The trip was well planned with lots of information and interesting stops. As Kiwis it was nice to visit a part of New Zealand we had never been to before. We were blown away with the beauty in Milford Sound
