Description

Air Milford hosts you on an intimate experience, combining two incredible scenic flights into Fiordland National Park, with a Nature Cruise through the fiord itself. With numbers capped on the boat at 150, and on-board Nature Guides offering personal attention. The “Spirit of Milford” catamaran explores nooks and crannies along the edge of the fjord, nudging into sheer rock faces to examine flora and fauna in detail. Enjoy return flights to Milford Sound so you can enjoy it from all angles.

This half-day eco-tour with Air Milford is perfect for close-up shots of seals, birds and other wildlife, including dolphins ‘riding’ the bow wave and the rarest penguin in the world, the Fiordland crested penguin (Spring and Autumn).

The smaller boat helps you appreciate the sheer size and grandeur of the fiord’s cliff faces rising hundreds of meters out of the water, scarred here and there by tree falls. You’ll get within touching distance of impressive geological features and close enough to catch and drink pure glacial water, or feel the full force from the powerful 15,000-year-old Stirling Falls (they’ve got jackets on board to keep you dry!).

Join the skipper on the bridge for a birds-eye view and see first-hand how the boat operates. Help yourself to free tea and coffee, with a delicious lunch included on the 11.30am departure, morning tea on the 09.30am departure and a complimentary beer, wine or soft drink on the 1.30pm departure.

This Fly-Nature Cruise-Fly option allows you to enjoy the best of both worlds, from the water and the air.
