Your full-day Milford Sound package begins with a morning walk along the Milford Track. A short boat ride will take you across Milford Sound’s Deep Water Basin to Sandfly Point for the start of a guided hike.

Stop at Giant's Gate Waterfall, a stunning and much-photographed site that is best viewed from the large swing bridge. In the afternoon you’ll enjoy the awe-inspiring scenery of the Milford Sound from the comfort of a small boat cruise. With outstanding viewing opportunities, you’ll take in the geological drama of sheer cliffs, massive waterfalls and more. Be on the lookout for wildlife, such as seals basking on the rocks or dolphins playing near the boat.
