What to Expect
This is an intimate experience with numbers capped at 150, and on-board guides offering personal attention. The “Spirit of Milford” catamaran explores nooks and crannies along the edge of the fiord, nudging into sheer rock faces to examine flora and fauna in detail for 2 hours.

This ‘ecotour’ is perfect for close-up shots of seals, birds and other wildlife, including dolphins ‘riding’ the bow wave and the rarest penguin in the world, the Fiordland crested penguin (spring and autumn).

The smaller boat helps you appreciate the sheer size and grandeur of the fiord’s cliff faces rising hundreds of meters out of the water, scarred here and there by tree falls. You’ll get within touching distance of impressive geological features and close enough to catch and drink pure glacial water, or feel the full force from the powerful 15,000-year-old Stirling Falls (they’ve got jackets on board to keep you dry!).

Join the skipper on the bridge for a bird's-eye view and see first-hand how the boat operates. Help yourself to free tea and coffee, with a delicious lunch included in this option.
