This is such a beautiful place and we went with Real Journeys on a nature cruise. Amusing commentary. We saw seals and penguins and so thrilled to also spot 2 whales which is apparently quite unusual. Such a fab day which we will always remember.

This was one of the highlights during our recent NZ trip. We drove from Te Anau (2h) and I must say that the road is equally beautiful as the destination. I suggest that you take your pictures when you back so you have more time and you're not rushed.

We did the 9h15 cruise with Jucy and I understood why early cruises were cheaper: in NZ, it tends to be cloudy in the morning and the sky clears up around lunch! Nonetheless, it was still magical to see to seals, the falls (even got a shower underneath!!) and the scenery is just breathtaking. We really took our best pictures in that region. Go for it!!!

We took a boat trip (with sales) which we booked in Te Anau (down by the lake), but you can buy tickets at the boat port itself when you get to Milford Sound. It really is a magical place. It feels very eery, like something out of Jurassic Park. 100% worth a visit.

Many years of hearing about it , seeing it on T.V and photographs galore. But nothing compares to beholding it' with your own two eyes. What makes it even more special, is sharing those first moments of spell bounding monstrous granite fortresses; that' s stretches into misty heights' piercing beyond all measures of eyesight. This natural beauty causes the very heavens to weep its bounty of tears from praying virgins, whose holy prayers are answered in cascading water that fall as the cup surely doeth runeth over the brim that is Milford Sounds! That special sharing is you Juicy Cruises. Thank you for allowing me to hear the silent sounds speak aloud. And to my beautiful wife Susannah on our three day honeymoon!

The road to and from is a wonderful part of the Milford experience, not just the fiord. Hot soup on the boat much appreciated. Too many tourists hog the photo opportunities, getting in the way of the best shots.
