Go Orange - Kayak Milford Sound

Don’t just look up at Milford Sound, immerse yourself at sea level. Let Go Orange help you explore one of the most spectacular places on earth, from the water...


  • Get a unique perspective of the iconic Milford Sound by kayak
  • Paddle around mighty mountains, cascading waterfalls and spectacular scenery
  • Enjoy a small, personalised group tour with expert guide
  • Watch for dolphins and the rare Fiordland Crested Penguin along the way
  • Visit a secluded beach to have lunch

Go Orange proudly present an experience like no other.

Seeing Milford from a cruise sure makes you feel small, but seeing it from a kayak is a whole new story. Get ready for the trip of a lifetime as you are joined by an experienced guide and a small group of kayakers for a fun and intimate experience surrounded by the majestic Fiords as we expertly guide you through the spectacular and iconic Milford Sound.

Nothing beats the perspective you will experience as you kayak along the walls of mighty mountains and out toward the open ocean, inches away from waterfalls cascading down from mountaintop glaciers to the ocean.

Make sure to have your camera ready as dolphins and the rare Fiordland Crested Penguin can on occasion be spotted! We'll visit a secluded beach and enjoy lunch as you soak up the breath-taking atmosphere of Milford Sound before your return paddle back to base.

We challenge you to delve deeper, go further than the average experience and Go beyond with us.

A+ Experience with an excellent guide.

I think kayaking is the best way to see the sound. You can’t go as far but the experience is much more present. Plus, you get a wee bit of a work out. Also...do they hire their guides based on attractiveness? Our guide Matt was a nice piece of eye candy who was quite knowledgeable about local ecology, biology, and history. We saw dolphins and a penguin and stunning scenery.

Great fun, beautiful setting

Fun morning spent on Milford Sound with informative guide, Noah. Good equipment, lots of kit. Traversed the sound stopping to look at the waterfalls and scenery, paddled across the sound before the strong wind came in which made for a more exciting experience. Very enjoyable experience in a beautiful place finishing up with an interesting Maori story on its creation. Only downside was the Sandflies, make sure well protected with nets and no uncovered areas!

Very nice attraction. Well prepared, not rushed, interesting and fun. Highly recommended and you don't need great experience in kayaking

Couldn't make it - no refund

Unfortunately our flight couldn't land in Queenstown due to heavy cloud so we had to cancel our trip. The team were responsive but refused to offer any refund. Every other company (car hire, equipment hire, campsite, etc) all offered a full or partial refund, despite having the same cancellation policies, but go orange would not, which was disappointing.

Fantastic Experience

Kayaking at Milford Sound was fantastic fun and great way to see Milford Sound. Our second time kayaking, ever. We kayaked out 1/2 way to Stirling Falls, had lunch on quaint little beach area and did kayak sailing! We did cruise at Doubtful Sound, which was lovely and peaceful, but this was way better, despite the other boats, planes and helicopters every now and then. We did this mid Jan, so not peak season.
