Milford is worth it. Have your sea legs ready...

Milford is amazing! The boat was cool, however, I would say the overall ride was too long and it goes fairly far out of the Sound and into the ocean - very exposed and you'll get battered by the winds and swells. If you get seasick, you're in for a nasty ride. Apart from that, awesome.
