We booked a coach/cruise/fly combination to Milford Sound with Jucy Cruize, and the flight back from Milford Sound was handled by Air Wakatipu. We’d made the final decision to add the flight back only the afternoon before the cruise and I’m SO glad we did- it was really an amazing experience.
One of the reasons we had chosen the Jucy/Air Wakatipu combination is that Air Wakatipu guarantees each passenger a window seat, which we really wanted, especially given that the flight is the most expensive part of the trip. Before booking, I actually emailed another cruise company about which airline they used and if they guaranteed a window seat, and never heard back from them. So that alone is a good reason to choose Jucy/Air Wakatipu. But what I didn’t expect is that we would be the only passengers on the flight, AND the plane was a little 4-seater- so cool! We essentially got a private flight back from Milford Sound with pilot Flo, and I got to sit in the front. The plane first flew over Milford Sound, so we got to see it from above, and then turned and flew over/between mountains, before turning along Lake Wakatipu, with Flo explaining the landmarks along the way. The scenery was stunning, and I feel lucky that we had clear, sunny weather on this particular day.
You really, really should do this if you go to Milford Sound and the weather is good.
