This was one of our first excursions on the South Island. Though we were catching the tail end of summer in February -the weather was all over the place. It turned out we had the best weather on this day- the rest of the week visitors had to endure rain or clouds. The visitor center was easy to find -exchanged our vouchers for passes to board, eat lunch, and lanyards for kayaking. We rode on the top of the boat which was chilly in shady spots and warm in the sun. Great views all around- saw several waterfalls. Then we were able to see some wildlife-NZ fur seals along with dolphins. Once we arrived at the Discovery center, we immediately met up with our kayak guide, Simon. It was my first time kayaking so I was unsure of what I could manage. Booking an hour was perfect for me as a beginner. Plus they had a lift that lowered us already in our kayaks into the water which made the whole process simple. We only had 4 total in our group and the views from the water were stunning -away from crowds and the boat engine noise-it was truly peaceful. Our guide said it was a catch-22 with weather- because while we had sun and great views, we had less waterfalls.Whereas if we had rain, the skies would be cloudy, but we'd have seen far more lovely natural waterfalls . So I say be prepared for either and you won't be disappointed in the least. I'd also recommend when kayaking to wear your camera on a lanyard around your neck. With a paddle it was too easy for me to drop in the water. And even though I didn't, I stopped taking pictures because of the fear. After Kayaking-we were in the underwater observatory which was fascinating because our guide was well versed on the sea life we saw.We learned some interesting things and saw creatures that I'd not seen before. Favorite part: kayaking. On the whole- I would definitely do this excursion again and recommend to family/friends. also-pictures do not do it justice.

Such an excellent experience - extremely, extremely rainy the entire time but still very worth it! With the rain came the thousands of waterfalls we were able to see. Our kayak guide Simon was fantastic! Very knowledgeable. Would recommend to anyone who isn't afraid of getting wet and wants to see Milford Sound it it's true environment.

This was by far the best thing we did on our month long honeymoon. Could not recommend this tour enough. It was downpouring while we were there, which is what you want b/c it creates a thousand pop up waterfalls! So, hopefully you are lucky and get wet weather while you are there like we did! The tour company and staff were fantastic. They gave great info out during the cruise, while getting you really close to the waterfalls, and the kayaking was a fun experience as well!

Thoroughly enjoyable. Amazing views with interesting commentary. Enjoyed seeing the seals as well as the fish etc. in the optional observatory tour. We had a clear day and were able to sit outside most of the time. The boat was not crowded and the picnic lunch was bigger than expected and worth having. Overall a good day.

Great customer service with amusing and informative commentary. Comfortable boat with decent picnic lunch especially the white choc cookies! and unlimited tea/coffee. Milford Sound exceeded our high expectations. Unmissable and worth every penny.

HIGHLY recommend the kayak. We went at the end of June, so it was cold. However, you don't realized the magnificence and waterfalls until you get in the kayak and get really really close. It was awesome! I love Milford Sound even more because of this tour.

Absolutely beautiful. The rain made it more amazing as it created numerous waterfalls. The staff were very knowledgeable about the area. We even got to see seals and a Fiordland Crested Penguin which was a highlight. I highly recommend this trip.

My booking through Viator saved me money! I had an awesome cruise and lunch. No problems at all. Would I book an event through them again? Absolutely!

You must go to see milford sound by yourself, it is best experience in my life. The milford sound is so beautiful.
Recensione di: Jiamin L , agosto 2014
the cruise was so-so though we were quite delighted to know that a good spread of buffet was included (i think we spent more time inside eating instead of enjoying the view outside). saw some seals on the rocks. the aquatic centre wasn't fantastic. but we definitely had a great time kayking in milford sound, taking pictures and just absorbing the nature. so kayaking in milford sound made this trip worthwhile....

It could have been poor weather, but it was a slow trip round the one bay.

Milford sound overrated. Kayak was good but felt rushed.
