So much fun!

This trip was excellent! Our guide, Dylan, was knowledgeable, confident, hilarious and took good care of the group. The whole experience was well-planned and extremely enjoyable. Weather was perfect, which was a pleasant surprise considering the volatile Milford Sound climate. Even saw a couple of playful fur seals right by our kayaks! What a day... We had a lot of fun and would definitely recommend it to friends :)

Awesome Experience!

The guides were very knowledgeable and engaging. We had a great time kayaking and the views were awesome. Just two things to give feedback on: 1) It’s not within their control but the presence of sandflies was a bit extreme. 2) Perhaps some light refreshments could be provided (E.g. Energy drink) once we got ashore after the whole kayaking. Otherwise kudos to the company! Our guide, Brandon, was awesome!

Incredible!!

This is such a great way to see the Milford Sound! Our guides were very funny and helpful and the kayaks were really nice (they even have rudders for steering). My husband had never been kayaking before and thought that it was a little tiring (at the end where you paddle back in without stopping much) but really doable for a first timer. We even saw 2 fur seals!

experience amazing, staff ok

Kayaking in the milford sound&seeing the wildlife (dolphins, penguins) was wonderful however we (group of 4) found the staff impaired this a bit. Courtney was rude (sarcastic comments about where to park, the stuff we had with us (even though we tried to confirm what would be provided but she insisted we wait until the briefing) and she huffed and rolled her eyes when we asked for the gloves. Andrew was the lesser of two evils so we were relieved to be in his group but even he still made ill judged comments about Irish paedophile priests (like, seriously?), bikini waxes and the 'French' but in his defence his kayaking instruction and wildlife knowledge were great.

Perfect Morning

Great introduction to sea kayaking. The Team were very thorough in our preparation for the tour. The guides were very informative and supportive to newcomers to the sport. Our experience was enhanced by absolutely perfect conditions.
