It poured rain the day we visited Milford (19 Jan), the clouds were low so we were not able to see the tops of the mountians. It did not stop us from having a great time! Be prepared - bring an umbrella, rain jacket, second pair of shoes and a change of clothes as there is nothing worse than driving back home soaking wet and cold - especially in the middle of a NZ summer (which is quite mild!!!) Dont be afraid to get wet - get out on the top deck in the rain and enjoy the cruise :)

Good cruise- although the weather was horrible- so was hard to talk in the beauty of Milford sound. The guide was informative, but hard to hear on the loudspeaker downstairs
