Lovely day flying from Wanaka over the alps and onto a small cruise ship. A few things to be aware of:

1) Don't bother trying to decide between 'Wanaka Flightseeing' and 'Southern Alps Air' - it's the same firm behind the scene

2) Be aware that this is very weather dependent. My trip was postponed a day, even though the weather was fine in Wanaka it was no good in Milford. So if you only have a few days in the area book this as soon as you can. If getting to the sounds is a 'must' for you on your trip then don't rely on flying - instead take a land route to Te Anau and go to Doubtful sound - much much less weather dependent.

3) I had visited Doubtful sound on a previous trip. As a humble tourist, I could see very little difference between Doubtful sound and Milford. So if you've already been to Doubtful then probably not worth the extra time and money to go to Milford

Fantastic flight into Milford Sound; knowledgable pilot. Very helpful at the desk. Excellent views wherever you sit in the plane.

Flight to Milford Sound, then boat tour and back with same airplane was wonderful, the way back a bit bumpy.

Good value for money - 40min helicopter scenic trip over Mt Cook, Mt Tasmin and Glaciers. Local firm, very friendly, pick up from site and return.
