March 18 – morning Milford Mariner

Milford Marriner

Early this morning the cruise continued from Hamilton bay where the boat had been anchored for the night.  We headed toward the end of the sound and the Tasman Sea.  On our way our captain steered the boat directly under Fairy falls where we experienced the mist from this magical place.  On our return we encountered a pod of bottle nose dolphins and we were entertained by their play and swimming along the ships bow wake.

We docked and boarded the bus for our scenic return to Te Anau.
