    What an experience it was!

    We were very impressed with the overall service by the staff. We were slightly late getting to the terminal having to deal with the last minute stuff around an infant and two kids. We weren't asked to collect the token to get on board, but instead they contacted the office and got us in. So it was a plus point to start things off. The boat took us through breathtaking views of the scenic mountains and pristine water. They offer complimentary tea/coffee.

    Lovely modern boat and lovely crew

    If you want comfort, space and several viewing options for your trip to Milford Sound, The gem of the sound is the boat for you. Modern leather seating, screens inside so you don’t miss anything and two viewing decks (front and back). Our skipper Rob was fantastic - his commentary was funny and really interesting, and he got us super close to some amazing waterfalls and seals! The rest of the crew were great too. Thanks for making my trip memorable and amazing
