Milford Sound private cruise and helicopter experience
Fiordland, Southland, New Zealand
An exhilarating half day combining a helicopter flight to Milford Sound with an exclusive private boat cruise. Explore this unique corner of New Zealand's South Island away from the crowds, getting up close to dramatic waterfalls and the fiord walls.
Starting and ending in Queenstown (arrangements can be made from other locations on request) you will fly by helicopter into the spectacular Fiordland, to Milford Sound. The helicopter flight is approximately 45 minutes in duration. You'll set off in your private boat with captain and explore the fiord for an hour and a half, cruising up close to the steep-sided fiord walls, watching waterfalls and looking for marinelife as you go.
Milford Sound is a popular spot in South Island and a private boat charter is the ideal way to experience it away from the limitations of a larger boat. We can arrange seafood platters, champagne or other snacks and drinks to be on board if you wish. The boat itself is comfortable and spacious, but is not a luxury vessel. The luxury in the experience is in the privacy and flexibility to explore parts of the sound at your own pace, away from the crowds. You'll then return to the helipad and fly back to Queenstown. This trip departs morning and afternoon at either 9am or 1pm. Full days are possible on request and depending on availability of the boat.
