Cruise & Kayak Milford Sound

1. Cruise & Kayak Milford Sound

Your tour starts off with a cruise along the entire length of the sound and out to the Tasman Sea on a Nature cruise. Each cruise has a different focus and explores a different part of the sound, so pick the one that's best for you! Towards the end of your cruise you will be dropped off at the Milford Sound Underwater Observatory to journey through the history, geology and wildlife of Milford Sound and visit New Zealand's only floating underwater observatory to view rare black coral. Then, your specialist kayak and nature guide will take you over to the kayaking pontoon to enjoy up to 90 minutes of relaxing kayaking in serene Harrison Cove. Gaze through the glacier-fed waters as you kayak in one of the most majestic places in the world. This is an intimate experience with a maximum of 8 kayaks per tour including a specialist kayak and nature guide to point out the fjord features and wildlife. No previous experience is necessary and we even have an automated lift for easy entry and exit from the kayaks.

Milford Sound is so beautiful. One of the best trips ever. By doing the cruise, under water observatory and the kayak we got to spend quite a bit of time and really got the full experience. Very friendly helpful informative guide. Anyone can do the kayak with the great launching platform that lifts and lowers you into and out of the water. Bonus great picnic lunch bag provided to each of us. The water is so crystal clear and you get to paddle right up to the sides of the fiords. Totally recommend whole experience is breathtaking from start to finish. Bonus of seeing dolphins and fur seals also.
