Loved the experience well worth it. Interesting to learn more at the observatory and see wildlife. Perfect weather and food service on the cruise was convenient.

Under water observatory is the most memorable part of this tour. Excellent experience. The crew members were very friendly and they were explained about this place clearly. Thanks for everyone

Great Service. A cruise on a Sunny day is a blessing. Still with few water falls and specially the company of dolphins were amazing.

Just being on the cruise, Bowen falls + the other waterfalls. Wildlife. Lovely lunch. A bit disappointed by the small numbers of fish at the observatory

Milford Sound Cruise Including Underwater Observatory and Lunch
There were only 43 people on our trip and so the boat was spacious with plenty of room to move around. The landscape was stunning and we got close the the fjords and the waterfalls with a great commentary from our captain. We saw penguins and seals and enjoyed sailing out into the Tasman Sea before turning into the relative calm of the fjords. There was enough rain that the waterfalls were srunning and the underwater observatory was magical.

It was a wet day with snow all around the Mountains which made it perfect with all the water falls going. Amazing trip and lovely staff.
