Great Day

We booked this trip through bookme but unfortunately no order confirmation or receipt was received. We booked again direct. Upon arrival we had paid for 4 tickets and not 2. They actively refunded us there and then. The actual trip was a quick 2 hours through the sound and we stayed on upper viewing deck which was not crowded. A simple commentary was provided and we stopped 3 times to see highlights which for us was seeing a penguin and stunning scenery.

Amazing cruise!

I found the cruise was the perfect amount of time with lots of things to learn about the Fiordlands. With the cafe on board, you have everything you need for the 2 hours on board with lots of space where it didn’t feel cramped.
