Morning departure: Double dive trip for qualified divers
- Duration: 6 Hours (approx.)
- Location: Milford Sound
- Product code: MDT
Unique to the Milford's underwater world are sheer cliff faces, which provide for the most spectacular Fiord wall diving and a totally unique eco system of black coral trees. The coral trees have a stunning white appearance over a jet black skeleton and are normally only found in deep water trenches. Thanks to Milford's heavy rainfall making for a mix of fresh and salt water on the surface with huge mountains casting their shadows over the waters, enough light is blocked to allow these beautiful coral trees to call Milford's Piopiotahi marine reserve home.
While diving and cruising you have the chance to see dolphins, seals, penguins, sharks, eels, octopus, stingray, crayfish, nudibranch and over 150 different fish species.
This tour is for qualified divers with confident buoyancy skills. Parts of our dives include wall diving in a group where these skills are important. If you are a freshly qualified diver and you are unsure about your buoyancy skills consider booking the first time diver experience.
