Milford Sound is stunning, and you should try to see it one way or another. We decided we wanted to see it up close and personal via kayak. After discovering I am pregnant, my husband and I decided to do a shorter excursion than originally planned: the Milford Must Do with Go Orange. The Go Orange staff was super helpful... More

Took the milford must do kayak package. We booked a day before at Te Anau. Be noted that you only can booked before you go to Milford Sound, as there is not wifi signal after Te Anau, so basically if you plan to book via online at Milford, best to forget the idea. Its was fun, views beyond amazing. Acquire... More

We just got back from our trip and we did the Milford Magic tour with Go Orange - kayak and cruise. It was spectacular for many reasons...

At 6 months pregnant I wasn't sure if I was pushing it with an overnight kayak and camping trip to Doubtful Sound but it was amazing. Doubtful Sound is stunning and we learnt so much about the history and geology of the area. Scotty was a fantastic guide and the kit was great. With their bug shelter in camp and... More

Wow....what an epic 5 days i've just had. Doubtful Sound is just amazing (understatement of the year) - if you have the time go for the full 5 days, you see so much more of the sound than you would on a shorter kayak trip (or cruise). our wee crew managed to get up close and personal with all 5...

I am an avid and experienced sea kayaker. I also think that Milford Sound is stunningly beautiful. My problem is that this kayak trip went so slowly that we barely seemed to cover any distance at all. Because of this, we missed many of the views of the sound that were available to the cruise passengers. Bottom line: If you... More

We had the best tour with our guide, John. He is very friendly, helpful, entertaining and understanding! The weather was perfect, with extremely beautiful scenery starting from the Deep Water Basin, all the way to the lunch site. We were lucky to have penguins and seals swimming near our Kayak. One of my best outdoor experiences for sure!

We did the Milford must do kayak tour with our guide John. The tour was fantastic, scenery was extremely beautiful and managed to see some seal, dolphins (in the distance), and a penguin. John was a great guide, extremely friendly and knowledgeable.

Last week I kayaked the Doubtful Sound tour with Go Orange. One word to describe it - Heaven! Had lovely calm days, one in the sun and one in the rain - was perfect and peaceful.
