In the sheltered cove, enjoy activities including sea kayaking and exploring the shoreline on the tender craft, or simply relax on deck. After kayaking, seal-spotting and having some great weather, the trip was well worth the journey and expense.
Bandagi / Sat siri akal / Sassi garr, Rabb rakhaa / Namaste - Punjabi 97. If you’d like, relax with a drink in hand, sold at the licensed, onboard bar. The staff were professional and friendly, the food was excellent. I was worried about leaving our car with all of the luggage in it..problem. The cruise departed at pm, just when the last of the day tours where finishing, leaving us the entire of the sounds with just one other overnight vessel.After reaching the open sea, your captain hoists the sails for a period (subject to favorable weather conditions) before returning the Milford Mariner to Harrison Cove to anchor overnight. We saw sunset and sunrise on the sound, were well-fed and looked after by the Captain and his team and were well-informed by the on-board tour guide.The next morning, enjoy a hearty cooked breakfast and further cruising before you’re returned to the Milford Sound Wharf. In the evening we had 5 inches of rain which really enhanced the scenes before us, the number of waterfalls that were flowing grew expodentially and taking the trip out on the boats tender was an added bonus.In the morning clear bright blue skies but the number of waterfalls was reduced by two thirds but still very spectacular.A brilliant experience not to be missed if you are in the South Island. The crew, all so friendly and opportunity to chat with the captain up on the bridge.
Great company , food, nice cabin and learnt a lot about the whole area.

The on board nature guide showed us rare penguins, seals, birds etc and the Captain took the boat up close to see them in their natural habitats.
We would highly recommend this tour in the South Island.
