Perfect day at Milford Sound

We had perfect sunny weather for our Nature Cruise and the scenery was spectacular!! We saw a few seals and enjoyed the spray from the waterfall! A great day out - highly recommend!

Breath taking

If weather is clear it will take your breath away. We were lucky enough to experience this cruise during clear & calm weather. Choose your timing wisely because cloud cover or wind will totally change this experience. That said, the drive to the bay was well worth the entire trip alone. The mountains and landscape is beautiful!
