Stunning!
We went for a bus+cruise+flight experience and were so, so happy about everything! Bus driver/guide was funny kiwi man, making jokes and taking us to beautiful photo spots on the way to Milford Sound.
From there be boarded the boat and enjoyed 2 hour cruise around beautiful landscapes.
The firs "wow"moment was dolphins - they literally were swimming and jumping just next to our boat! Such a cuties!
And those waterfalls and rainbows. And those cute, always lazy, sleepy seals, sunbathing on the rocks.

We had complementary coffee and tea on the boat, so when we got a bit cold from standing outside and taking pictures, we could warm up ourselves with a hot drink.

After our boat trip, we got to the local Milford Sound airport where we had to take the plane back to Queenstown. Omg, that was stunning! What a view! What a vista! What an experience! Those peaks, lakes, snowlines.. Me and my friend are so excited and pumped up after this beautiful trip!
Thank you Mitre Peak for this wonderful experience!

Thank you so much, it is honestly a great feeling when you get a review as good as yours. It sounds like you had a great combination and a fantastic all round trip, I will pass on your compliments on to the seals (they can get bashful). As for the flight, we all agree that it is one of the most stunning flights you can do.

was the best experience of my life , thank you Mitre Peak Cruises! starting with the bus, the super friendly driver showed us everything, took pictures of us, super comfortable ! if you want an amazing experience you have to use their boat , is the small single and it comes very near the falls of water and animals. You can see dolphins very closely , INCREDIBLE! The boat and comfortable and very clean, the boat staff is phenomenal , they explained to us and showed all . We return with airplane and very worth it. The girls of care when you go shopping the tour already shows that the team is sensational, they are super thoughtful. amazing staff, amazing place, amazing safety, all amazing!

Now in Portuguese:

O passeio com eles é realmente incrível, obrigada Mitre Peak cruises. Se você está em Queenstown, você precisa ir até Milford Sounds com eles. Você pode comprar os tickets com as meninas ali na Patagonia chocolates perto do lake, elas são umas fofas e super atenciosas. O passeio começa no ônibus, o motorista é super atencioso e explica tudo em inglês óbvio hahaha :) ele tirou fotos de toda a turma do ônibus e nos levou com segurança até o barco. O barco deles é o menor que tem, ou seja, ela chega supeeeeer perto dos animais e das quedas de água (cachoeiras). Voltamos de avião com eles e vale a pena o investimento, uma sensação única!!! Obrigada toda equipe vocês são nota mil!

It sounds like you had a pretty “amazing” time with us, I hope you enjoy the rest of your trip around NZ just as much. I have passed on your comments about the staff, they love to hear when they have done well.

A lovely small boat with an attentive & friendly crew. Great facilities and a very personal service made for an amazing day trip. We saw penguins, seals and dolphins!

Thank you very much for the great review. It is amazing you got to see all three (penguins, dolphins and seals), as the seals are the only ones that stay here permanently. We are very proud of the staff and crew, and I will pass on the message of them doing a good job.

The weather for our cruise on the sound was not ideal for viewing as it was neither sunny nor rainy, just drizzly; that being said, the crew did an excellent job, and the waterfalls along the way were plentiful enough to really enjoy the views. Our tour guide to and from the cruise did an excellent job showing us many beautiful sites within Fiordland National Park.

Hi there,
Thank you for your review! Milford Sound does have very unique weather – no two days are the same. Our towering mountains and temperate rainforest create high levels of precipitation, and as you noticed it makes waterfalls a plenty! I am glad you still enjoyed your experience, even though the weather was not what you had hoped, and I hope you enjoyed your time in New Zealand.
Kind regards,
The team at Mitre Peak Cruises

We got transferred to Mitre Peak by accident as we missed the last boat of Real Journey while already bought the tickets. It turned out to be better since Mitre's boat was smaller meaning less people, could get closer to waterfalls, seals, plus we had friendly captain & crew. It also cruised deeper into the fjords and took longer (2 hours). Only a few people were on board so could move around freely taking photos of the mighty fjords, waterfalls and awesome scenery. An incredible and memorable cruise. Visited in Jan. a few years back.

We are really glad you had such an incredible experience and that the mistake by Real Journeys was an eventual bonus to your trip. We pride ourselves in the fact that we allow people to have room and enjoy the experience, and I am glad this was a massive upside to the trip. Your photos look incredible, and I’m glad you shared a few for people to see. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip just as much.
