The weather was perfect throughout the day and we had amazing views on our flight to Milford Sound and back again later. Blair, our brilliant pilot, looked after us throughout the day and made sure everything went as planned. His great sense of humour and knowledgeable comments in flight added to the occasion. The cruise was very enjoyable and it... More

The Engine was started and very quickly we were in the air. The pilot was very friendly and made us, first timers in a... More

Spend the extra and fly to Milford Sound, you will not regret it!!! Extremely professional pilot and team, made me feel at ease as I am not the best flyer! I have the most incredible photos from my trip, and even got to sit next to the pilot one way! Fantastic!

I did this trip when I was 12 with my parents. I remember the mountains so close to my window. Some 30 years later I shared this amazing experience with my husband. I was excited (and maybe a little nervous). Once the plane took off any fear left me and the awe of where we were was just beautiful. To... More

The most awesome day ever. We had a wonderful time flying over the Southern Alps into Milford Sound. We then cruised up the entrance and saw dolphins birdlife and even a seal. What an amazing day worth every penny and this company goes over and beyond to make your experience safe and memorable.

You can take a short private flight to Milford sound on a fly cruise fly package. Which gets you back to Queenstown on the same day as well as you enjoy the Milford sound cruise.The view of snow peaked mountain from the flight is a view in itself.
