Milford Magic

 Kayaking past Bowen Falls

Join us in Milford Sound for this full day adventure – enjoy a leisurely morning kayak experience followed by a nature cruise on the fiord in the afternoon. 

With an experienced guide and small group of kayakers you’ll explore the spectacular Lady Bowen Falls.  Getting up close to Sinbad Gully – the valley of New Zealand’s most photographed mountain of Mitre Peak, you’ll learn about the Sinbad Sanctuary Project and the special native wildlife that make this area their home. 

As you paddle along the shoreline view the rainforest in beautiful detail.  2 ½ – 3 hours of kayaking is involved in this relaxing morning paddle –  a great morning out.  Then join us on a 2 ½ hour nature cruise out to the Tasman Sea and return.
