    Sea Kayaking - Milford Sound

    Milford Must Do

    Milford Sound

Experience Milford Sound from sea level with an experienced guide and a small group of kayakers.

Join us for a fun, relaxed and intimate experience of this majestic fiord. Paddling here is awesome, whatever the weather and whatever your previous paddling experience (or lack of it!).

You’ll enjoy 4 – 5 hours on the water with the freedom to explore the fiord, check out the wildlife (seals and occasionally penguins and dolphins) and marvel at the natural wonders of Mitre Peak, Pembroke Glacier and thundering waterfalls. 

Weather permitting, we’ll stop for lunch on a secluded beach.  If an afternoon breeze comes up, we’ll raft our kayaks together and sail home.

You can join us at Te Anau, The Divide (Routeburn Track road end) or in Milford Sound.  Travelling with us along the Milford Road is definitely part of the experience - we'll provide good kiwi music and tell stories, have afternoon tea and stop at our favourite places.
