Milford sound and Doubtful sound day cruise

Hi Experts,

Is there any changes needed in below mentioned trips ??? We have planned to visit in this month..

-> We are planning to go for Milford sound {Day cruise}...

-> And Next Morning planning to go for Doubtful sound {Day cruise}

And who is best for Milford sound Day Cruise ?? {Southern discoveries or Real Journeys}

* I guess Southern discoveries have more options than Real Journeys

And We are Planning to go by Real Journeys Day Cruise to Doubtful Sound

Cheers,

Shanth

What town are you staying in?

Your itinerary is fine, assuming you're staying in Te Anau or Manapouri.

The cruise operators in Milford are all quite similar. Differences include length of cruise, size of boat and extras offered (such as lunch). There really is no 'best'. You might get a discount if you book both cruises with the same operator though.

Both great trips. I love both Milford and Doubtful Sounds and real journeys do a great job.

I image you can get a discount for booking both. But if you can, do an overnight on doubtful sound.

If you book both tours with Real Journeys at the same time you will get a discount.

As mentioned by Mel - hope you are based in Te Anau or Manapouri and not busing from Queenstown both days?

I'm no expert, but I have seen some great reports on the overnight trip on Doubtful Sound. Could you fit that in somehow?

Won't you need three nights Te Anau?

1 arrive Te Anau - glow worm caves? Ata Whenua?

2 Milford trip, stay Te Anau

3 Doubtful trip, stay Te Anau
