We chose the morning nature tour and are glad we did as it didn't have as many people on it as the scenic cruise. Cabin had big windows so you have a good view even if the weather turns bad, and there is plenty of deck space for an uninterrupted view. There's a guide walks around the deck pointing out seals, penguins and features of the landscape during the tour. Milford is a must-see in Fiordland and this was a great way to see it.

Accomodating enough to put us on the next boat when we missed our due to traffic. Cruise was great even though the top deck constantly smelled of what was being cooked in the kitchen.

We chose the scenic tour in the afternoon, only 15-20 people on the boat to share such amazing scenery. We were lucky to see penguins, seals and dolphins.

Everyone has said Milford Sound is a must see and I 100% agree!! From the start of the Milford Road to the end of the Sound, jaw dropping cliffs with waterfalls, penguins, seals and loads of interesting commentary from the boat crew.

Very beautiful cruise during about 2 hours, very spectacular waterfalls, we saw penguins also. But a bit expensive for this type of activity.
