Milford Sound Nature Cruise

It was a fantastic experience with Real Journeys. As we went in low season, there would have only been about 50 people on the boat so there was ample room on the outer decks to take photos and enjoy the view. The commentary was good (could have been more) and the boat went out to the entrance of the Tasman Sea (smaller boats didn’t go out as far) and up close (almost literally underneath) to waterfalls. Would highly recommend.
