Milford Sound Nature Cruise

It was a fantastic experience with Real Journeys. As we went in low season, there would have only been about 50 people on the boat so there was ample room on the outer decks to take photos and enjoy the view. The commentary was good (could have been more) and the boat went out to the entrance of the Tasman Sea (smaller boats didn’t go out as far) and up close (almost literally underneath) to waterfalls. Would highly recommend.

Brilliant

They made the day fantastic. The weather was bad but the crew made it so much fun all the same. Also I booked the wrong day by mistake and turned up a day late. Not a problem, they put my family on the same boat the day we arrived all the same. Thanks again!!!!!

What a great experience!

The drive in to Milford Sound itself was spectacular enough but the cruise and the sights of Milford Sound were awesome. The MS Wanderer provided us with an experience of a lifetime.
