Our family spent a night in Milford Sound aboard Real Journeys’ The Wanderer. The trip started at 4:30pm one day and ended at 9:15am the next morning.

It was such a great way to experience Milford Sound — from walking a portion of the Milford Track to jumping off the boat into the waters of the sound, to enjoying the first cup of morning coffee watching the sun rise over the mountains.
Our time on the boat created what will be long lasting memories.
