It was pretty much love at first sight when we arrived at Milford Sound. Of all the places we visited, this might have been the most surreal. I can see why the South Island is a popular filming location, because I've never seen a place that looked so straight out of a movie!
Just a few minutes into the trip, we saw a whale surface. I missed it for the most part, but got this tail picture as it dove back down.
In other wildlife news, we got up pretty close to a bunch of seals just chillin on this rock.
After seeing them up close, I've come to the conclusion that seals, as a species, aren't that cute.
We continued down the coastline and came across a lone penguin waddling through the rocks. Who needs a zoo when you can just cruise around Milford Sound instead!
The last picture I got before getting completely soaked.
We took a couple more pictures, because how could you not with this background, and then were on our way!
