Today we are took a flight to Milford Sound and then a Boat ride on Milford Sound with Real Journeys. The flight took about 45 minutes and then we landed at Milford Sound. We had about an hour before our boat ride through the sound, so we took our time and walked around the sound a little. Out boat ride was at 1:30, so we arrived at the dock around 1:00. Our pilot is our guide and escort all day, so he got us where we needed to be and waited for us to get back.
The cruise of the sound was wonderful. The sound is so deep that the boat can get right up to the cliff wall. A westerly wind was coming in from the Tasman Sea, so the sound was a little rough. It also clouded up and rained a slight bit while we were cruising the sound. The cruise lasted about an hour and a half.
The video below is a bit long, but it has some beautiful scenery.
Since we had a light lunch we went out to dinner tonight. We walked across the street from our hotel to Atlas Beer House. It was a small place, but the beer was good. Unfortunately, there was a table nearby and the conversation was very salty with a lot of F-bombs being dropped. It made for an unpleasant dinner.
