The flight to Milford Sound is fantastic. Amazing scenery that I have never seen before. Our pilot, Matt, was as great a tour guide as he was a pilot. The boat ride on the Sound was breathtaking. We were able to get really close to a huge waterfall. The boat left from the dock that was only a short walk... More

Milford Sound is amazing. A must see if you are blessed by decent weather as we were. Our party of four used Southern Alps Air flying out of Wanaka (book at the tourist place in the main street). This involves an incredible scenic flight cross the alps and then a cruise of the Sound itself. It's not cheap but it's... More

Milford Sound, a place Rudyard Kipling called "The Eigth Wonder of the World" Flying to Milford Sound is a hit or miss situation. You get a call about 30 minutes before your flight time to say go or no-go for the day. Lucky for us it was a go. We were picked up and driven to the airport to board... More

On the sunniest of days, this flight over the Southern Alps and Fiordland has to be experienced to be believed! It costs a bit but well, well worth it. It IS a tiny plane; the pilot wasn't joking when he asked who wanted to co-pilot....You do experience some 'turbulence' due to the size of the plane and it's not for... More

We have traveled the world, Milford Sound on the south island of New Zealand is the best place. The flowers and palms this time of year look and smell wonderful! In the gift shop we purchased sixty dollars worth of package seeds approved to bring home to Florida but after clearing customs the US Agriculture took them away so save... More

We had our "fly-cruise-fly" experience leaving from Queenstown using Air Milford. We had originally booked our flight with another air carrier who had cancelled two days in a row because of weather and wind at Milford Sound. With only one more day left on our trip, we awoke to a beautiful sunny day and high hopes. We found out that... More

We took a bus from Queenstown to Milford Sound and spent the night on the Mariner. While it was a very long bus ride close to 7 hours the scenery and the stops were great. The boat experience was fine and the scenery again beautiful. We boarded at 4PM and set out through the Fiords. We watched the sun set... More
