Chose Mitre Peak Cruises because they have a smaller boat and certainly was not dissapointed. Less people meant it was easier to get around and get that perfect picture. Based on what the other larger boats were doing we went further out of the Sound and got much closer to waterfalls and wildlife. Commentary from the Captain was very entertaining and informative. If you are looking for a cruise company, pick these guys.
Friendly, good weather, few people.
We did the tour at 4:30pm, less people, small boat, around 30 people, space for 75, funny skipper (entertaining), got very close to the seals as the boat is so small.
Thank You - to the thousands of travellers that have contributed to our Top Voted NZ Activities Map - it's free from Rankers.

It was a small boat with just 25 people (much less than other boats). Although the weather was not perfect, the Milford Sound was beautiful.
Very professional service and a beautiful trip, dramatic scenery and a stunning drive to get there!
Best boat tour I have done so far. Nice scenery, seals, dolphins, a penguin and the perfect boat size and very friendly crew.
The weather started off cloudy with low cloud for the first 1/8 of the top then cleared up to amazing views of the whole Fjord.
Small cruise company with small ships. They go further into the Sound than other companies and give good information about wildlife and nature.
We picked the 8:55am cruise as it is $10 cheaper and we camped at Milford Sound. The weather was not great: raining and foggy so it was not great to start but it cleared up afterwards. The boat was one of the small ones which was good to take pictures and see everything. We came really close to the seals and the boat stayed long enough for us to take videos and pictures. Great experience but better when sunny and clear.
We took the trip with Mitre Peak Cruises as they have smaller boats, but nothing too extraordinary.
