    Absolutely marvelous!

    An incredible experience! It exceeded what I expected. I was on the upper deck the entire time and was in constant amazement with the beauty of Milford sound. The vessel was great and crew helpful.

    Fantastic, couldn’t have been better

    Fantastic! It was a perfect day, warm and blue skies and even though there were only eleven passengers, they didn’t cancel. Even gave us free sandwiches which were leftovers from the previous fully booked trip. Going on the 3.00 pm cruise, when most coach trips have left worked really well for us.
