Milford Sound

Kayaking within Milford Sound, a designated World Heritage Area is unbeatable – it is immensely rewarding and lots of fun. 

The Milford Road which is considered to be one of the finest alpine drives in the world, provides access to spectacular Milford Sound.  Mitre Peak, an iconic feature of the sound, is believed to be the one of the world’s highest mountains to rise out of the sea.  At 1682m this mountain rises more than a kilometre from the water level of the fiord.

Explore this magnificent area at sea level from a kayak and whatever the weather – teaming with rain, shrouded in mist or glistening in the sunshine – prepare to be inspired!  Join us in one of the most beautiful places on earth – Milford Sound.

An ideal half day on Milford Sound with a leisurely 2 hour paddle around Deep Water Basin and Sandfly Point plus 2 hour easy walk along the final section of the famous Milford Track Walk.

Explore the shoreline of Milford Sound by sea kayak (2.5hrs-3hrs), including the Lady Bowen Falls and Sinbad Gully on this morning adventure.  Learn about Fiordland National Park and the wildlife that call this fiord home.

A great combination of sea kayaking and a nature cruise of Milford Sound.  A relaxed morning paddle (2.5hrs-3hrs) and then a 2.5hr cruise of the fiord out to the Tasman Sea.  Look out for seals and other wildlife.  Picnic Lunch included.

Join a small group sea kayak (4hrs) in Milford Sound accompanied by an experienced guide.  Get close to thundering waterfalls and explore the fiord edges and sheer cliffs.  Look out for seals, penguins and possibly dolphins.

Customer Comments

“The best way to experience Milford Sound”. Experiencing the Milford Sound from a small kayak makes you feel real small, but it’s a very rewarding experience and simply the way to see Milford Sound if you’re not afraid of the water! Our guide Luke, could not have been better, he shared a wealth of knowledge throughout the tour.
