We can now well understand why everybody is so enthusiastic about Milford. We took an early morning cruise (9am) package with Milford Lodge which also included the Discovery Centre. The downturn was that the sun was still very low and did not illuminate parts of the ffiord although the ample boat breakfast made up for it. We saw loads of dolphins, seals on the rocks and waterfalls. The absolute highlight was the underwater observatory. We stayed for about 90 minutes and did not want to leave. The guide was from Ireland and loved his work being very knowledgeable and answered everyones questions. The fish and coral were amazing helped by low levels of fresh water which made it easier to see everything. We were lucky enough to see a shark loitering around the pod and got some great photos. Would do it again. There are options to have longer cruises and other meals.
