Great views of Milford Sound even though it was pouring with rain and foggy!! However the boat was a little overcrowded.

Very well organised tour with lots of great history and stops along the way! We also did the underwater centre which was interesting but not unmissable. Comfortable boat with rain jackets on board for those daring to go under the waterfalls!

Three hour cruise on a rainy day - like almost every day on Milford Sound. Took the early boat, just 8 other people with us. Great experience! Loved all the falls and the landscape. Great guide at Milford Discovery Centre who explained a lot of interesting things.

The weather was typical, grey and raining but the Lady Bowen took us along the myriad of waterfalls. The kayaking afterwards was actually the best part, gently cruising along the lakes edge for 1.5 hours, where we were lucky to see a Tawahi Penguin - very cool!
