Milford Sound Kayaking

Sea Kayak Fiordland (Fiordland Wilderness Experiences)

Milford Sound is stunning. With an experienced guide and a small group of kayakers, you'll explore this spectacular fiord. Looking up at Mitre Peak, Pembroke Glacier and thundering waterfalls from water level is awe-inspiring.

Possible wildlife sightings include seals and occasionally penguins and dolphins. Four to five hours of kayaking is involved and weather permitting, we'll stop for lunch on a secluded beach. If the afternoon breeze comes up, we'll raft our kayaks together and sail back.

You have the option of joining this kayaking adventure either 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.
