We booked with Fiordland Outdoors as we wanted to support a small, local company for our Milford Track transfers.
The staff and vehicles were great. The weather conditions made the boat ride a bit bumpy but the skipper was good and the boat was the first to arrive at the start of the track. We were happy to see the boat at the end of the track at the boat jetty. Our boat driver radioed the bus driver so we did not have to wait around and we had time to refuel with some food and drink at the cafe before we headed back to our car at Te Anau. Thanks Fiordland Outdoors!

Outstanding service from Fiordland Outdoors & Contractor/partners Cheeky Kiwi. When fog shut Wellington airport down & left one of our group unable to get to Queenstown, Fiordland Outdoors was the only operator who went above & beyond to try & help…ringing other stuck travellers in Wgtn to try combine efforts, suggesting ideas, arranging a late taxi in case a flight came through…just outstanding service. And when it was finally deemed impossible for her to get to QT, they refunded in full. All other parts of the chain (hotels, DOC) said “bad luck, no refund” & offered no assistance.
And then there’s driver Kreyg whose geological/environmental AND trekking knowledge of the area was super interesting. The lovely boat taxi drivers, the swift boat trip back after reaching the end of trail….while everyone else waited for their big boat taxi at Sandfly Point, we were whisked back to shore & then a quick van ride lined up to take us to Milford Sound lodge for well earned cold beers while we waited for our shuttle back to QT. Absolutely recommend this operator & their partners 100%!

This company goes above and beyond for their customers and were very helpful. Would not hesitate to recommend or use them again.

Arriving a bit early at the start meant once the first boat was full we could get a head start on the track which was awesome. The boat driver was very friendly and gave us lots of information about the area.

The return trip from the track was just as easy and convenient as the boat runs continuously from 2-4:30pm so no need to rush on the final day of the track, with plenty to see more time on the track is always good. Combine with car relocation for the ultimate easy exit from the Milford Track.

Thank you very much Fiordland Outdoors Co.

We are a group of Trampers who tackled the Milford track 1 week ago. Unfortunately, we stuck in the 2nd hut (Mintaro Hut) due to the bad weather. We decided to turn back to glade wharf and we are surprised TJ (Boat skipper) is on time.

He arrived at the right time that we reach the wharf. We are the first group pick up by the boat on that day which is a big relief to us to get in the boat straight away and not waiting in the rain.

Moreover, the booking is so easy and Mark and Christine are patiently replying my question promptly. I will book again and recommend Fiordland outdoors to my friends and tramping communities.

If you’re trying to decide who to use for your Milford Track transport, you’ve found the right company!

We booked a combo bus and boat transport departing from and returning to Queenstown. At every step service was on time, friendly, safe, and professional.

Highlights: First, we arrived at Glade Wharf 20 minutes before the other ferry on the fast water taxi and got to be the first ones on the track. Then, when we arrived around 1:00 at Sandfly Point, we expected to have to wait until 2:00 for our departure - instead, the skipper was there ready to go and happy to take a group of us early! He arranged us to spend the hour having a beer at the lodge instead - MUCH preferred option!

Thanks Fiordland Outdoors, we are so happy we chose you!

We’ve used Fiordland outdoors twice in a row now. Last year was going at start of kepler track and just recently we did the milford track. Mark is very passionate with his work and ensures that all passengers gets into their destination safely. Also Christine is very easy to communicate with, explains the what & where with parking when starting the tracks. Would definitely arrange transportation with them again in the future! 😊

A truely professional company. Due to weather warnings and heavy rain we decided to cancel our booking - to complete the Milford track One day walk. This was professionally sorted and a refund was returning quickly to our account. The gentleman we spoke with went out of his way to offer us alternatives and helped us at all times with a positive manner. Fantastic company to work with. We will be back in the new walking season and will rebook without hesitation.

Fantastic experience. The boat on the way to the Milford Track was quick and the driver was excellent in the rough conditions we had leaving Te Anau Downs. The boat from the end of the Milford Track to Milford Sounds was a welcome sight and the driver was very helpful in lifting our packs on and off for us. Would highly recommend using Fiordland Outdoors Co for your Milford Track transport.

It was quite nice to be the first boat to arrive at the start of the track. The boat was also rather fast which was a bit of fun!

The staff on both the boat rides and the bus trip back to Te Anau Downs were efficient and helpful.

I also felt much better about spending my money with a smaller, family owned business.

Booked our groups Milford Tramp including water taxi, bus and shuttle transfers, Milford Lodge stay and Milford Sounds boat trip through Fiordland Outdoors. Couldn't recommend them them highly enough. They went above and beyond with Christine even picking our bags up from our accommodation in Te Anau to transfer to Milford Sounds Lodge, waiting for us at the end of our walk. PS. A stay at Milford Lodge (managed by Fiordland Outdoors) is a must!
