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

The i SITE system is a very effective way to plan and reserve your tours. Americans aren't familiar with such a system. We didn't know they existed until we arrived. Very helpful advice and maps. The first iSite you get to is the one in Auckland Airport!

We have only good things to say about the pilot, staff and service we experienced in March 2008 when we took the Wanaka/Milford Sound Cruise/Wanaka flight and are often recommending this to people who say they are going to NZ for a holiday. A great experience. Thank You.
