Unique experience staying overnight on the amazing Milford Sound on the Milford Mariner.

The crew were really helpful and keen to make the trip something special. Dinner and breakfast are buffets with nice food. It was a friendly atmosphere and we got to chat to passengers from all over the world.

It did not matter that weather was overcast with some showers as it created hundreds of spectacular waterfalls. We saw penguins, seals and were lucky to experience 2 dolphins who bow rode the boat for 10 minutes or so. Amazing creatures.

We drove to Milford ourselves after staying at Te Anau for the night. We did not find the drive too challenging but could see where landslides had taken place recently. Amazing rugged countryside.
Took the whole family of five on the overnight cruise. The drive up from Te Anau was spectacular in itself.

After an initial scenic cruise we moored for the night in a bay where there were activities including kayaking and a nature guided ride in the tender boat.

Fantastic staff, very helpful and informative, the cabins were far more spacious than I expected on a boat this size and very comfy. Food was great – Bob the chef is a culinary genius. Scenery and wildlife were spectacular.

One of the best experiences of our lives.
