The 6 hour trip was brilliantly organised. We ere picked up from our hotel and taken on a tour with an interesting commentary to the Penguin Rehabilitation Centre where penguins from the wild, who were suffering from an illness, or had been bitten by a shark, for example, were brought to be cured. Having seen the penguins in the various stages of recovery before being put back into the wild, we were taken to the coast to see the penguins and fur seals in their natural environment. We were then taken to a beautifully converted fishing boat at a jetty near the entrance on the south side of Otago Bay. From there we went out through the heads to view the magnificent abundance of bird and marine life. The albatrosses, with their 3 metre wing span were in full flight that day and were the highlight of the sea-bird activity. There were shags, shearwaters, penguins and baby seals climbing up the rocks. The commentary was excellent as was the trip back to the port of Dunedin.
The experienced is wonderstruck. The stunning beauty of Milford sound is extra ordinary . Should be on top of your lists when visiting Queenstown. The driver is funny but full of knowledge although he forgot to hand over my boarding pass and ticket for food on time. I was looking for him in the parking area to get my passes. I recommend the driver should asked if everyone got their boarding pass before we get off the bus .
The tour was great, the photo shots available are amazing. The food where we stopped for morning tea wasn't the best. The scenery was awesome and having the rain made the Milford Sounds magical
This is a fabulous option for those wanting to do Milford sound without having to spend hours in a coach..very professional..fabulous pilot..great experience.
great tour,well worth seeing,great tour guide,opted to take helicopter back[awesome]
