Great experience! Highly recommended :) we did the morning paddle and had an enthusiastic guide who was very knowledgable on the area. We saw Dolphins, seals, penguins and of course some of the amazing sights of Milford Sound!

Despite the constant Milford rain, we had a great experience exploring the Fiord with our friendly, knowledgeable guide. The team was really well organised.

Great value for money offered by this product which is a morning kayaking followed by a water taxi back to the port. Our guide was fantastic and we were able to get close to the penguins and seals.

Nice kayaking in beautiful scenery with a good interpretation by our friendly guide Morty. We saw a couple of fur seals. We were in a group of 7 people and it is good that it was not crowded. Price $155. They provide you with all the clothes you need.

I did the Morning Glory trip. As you kayak the entire length of the Sound it is quite strenuous but it is so worth it. It is really peaceful and you get to see the stunning scenery as well as wildlife much closer than on a tour boat - we saw seals and penguins. Only 9 out of 10 due to man eating sandflies!

I would give this trip an 11 if I could. We were lucky, with great weather, and a pod of bottlenose dolphins who played with us for around 15 minutes. Beyond that, our guide, Adam, was friendly, well informed, and fun. The preparation phase was well done and fairly quick, and nice gear is provided. Milford Sound is a fantastic place to kayak, we loved it. We did the Sunriser Classic, it is a good trip. The groups are small, only 4 kayaks plus the guide in our group. And did I mention dolphins? A lifetime peak experience!
