Highlights
  • More adventure in more ways: Visit two national parks by plane and boats
  • Spectacular aerial mountain views and photo ops over the Southern Alps
  • Chance to spot native seals, dolphins, and penguins from the water
  • Convenient pickup and drop-off at Queenstown hotels
What to Expect
Get picked up at your Queenstown hotel, head to a nearby hangar, and board a small plane for the spectacular flight to Milford Sound. The route crosses the Southern Alps and remote parts of Fiordland National Park, with great views across the rugged peaks. Touch down in Milford Sound and embark on a cruise that goes out to the mouth of the sound. Watch for the fur seals, dusky dolphins, and rare penguins that are native to the chilly Tasman Sea coast. When you return to shore, take off again above Milford Sound for the flight to Glenorchy, at the edge of Mount Aspiring National Park. Here you skim along the surface of the Dart River, taking the twists and turns at high speed on a jet boat tour, then learn about the region’s rich Maori heritage during a forest walk. The tour ends with drop-off at your Queenstown hotel.

I’ve been to Milford Sound before and I wanted to try something a little different this time. My husband was a little hesitant because of the price, but he was so glad we ended up going for it! It was worth every penny! The weather was perfect, our flight was absolutely

Many thanks for your review. The Milford Sound + Jetboat Combo is a fantastic way to experience two of the most scenic locations in one day. I have passed on your comments to Karl and thanks again for your feedback!

We booked our trip a week in advance based on weather forecasts. The morning started off a bit rough as we waited for a hotel pickup that didn’t show. When I called I was told that the Milford Sound boat cruise had been cancelled and was given the option to cancel for a full

Thanks for your review. It is great to hear that you enjoyed the two trips to Milford Sound and the Dart River/Glenorchy Area. Due to weather issues this is an option that is offered at times and we agree that still experiencing the flights to Milford Sound without the cruise and the Dart River Wilderness Jetboat is a great experience. Thanks again!

I was prepared for a cancellation due to weather. I was not prepared for a cancellation when there were spectacular clear blue, cloudless skies. I had another day available to reschedule but received no contact from the company. Nor did they refund my money. Fortunately I had

Many thanks for your review and I am sorry that you have not experienced the service that we pride ourselves on. We always endeavour to contact all passengers to rebook to other options and I apologize that this does not seem to have happened in your case. I would appreciate the opportunity to discuss this with you in further detail so we can investigate and ensure that this is not repeated moving forward. If you would like to email me my address is manager@milfordflights.co.nz – Thanks again!

The highlight of the cruise was the flight - everyone had a window seat and it was really fun. Because there was heavy rain the day before, the cruise part of the trip was cancelled and we were all told we would be refunded $80pp for that. After dealing with Viator (who we

Many thanks for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your flight with us and my apologies for the confusion regarding the price for your refund. We always try and make sure that all changes are communicated to our passengers as Milford Sound can be a very changeable environment so sometimes we have to offer alternative options as the weather dictates. Thanks for your review and we appreciate your feedback.

We booked the flight, cruise and jet boat tour but on the day our tour was cancelled due to weather conditions. We were offered another day and on this day the weather was such that they offered us the option of doing a scenic flight only but couldn't do the cruise. Although

Many thanks for your review. It is fantastic to hear that you enjoyed the Milford Sound flight only without the cruise as unfortunately this is an option offered to many passengers when the weather is not suitable for enough time to fly back after the boat cruise. Seeing Milford Sound by Air is truly an amazing experience. We generally fly around 70% of the time all year round to Milford Sound. Thanks again!
