The wife and I enjoy active activities like kayaking and hiking. Cruises - even day cruises, which are the only ones within are budget - are expensive.
I'm wondering if a cruise on Milford or Doubtful is really necessary to experience the beauty of the Sounds.
Would it be that much better than a day kayaking in Milford, and a day hiking off Milford Sound Highway (http://bit.ly/dxmo5G)?
Thanks in advance!
