Less than 3 weeks to go for NZ, what activities do I need to pre-book?

Jump to last reply

We're getting very excited about our South Island New Zealand trip coming up. We leave in just under 3 weeks. We've booked all accomodations and have pre-booked a Nature Cruise in Akaroa, heli-hiking at Fox Glacier (with a back-up the next day), and the Dart River Jet Boating in Glenorchy. There are a few other things we're planning to do where we're not sure if we should pre-book.

1) It looks like there are several operators out of Milford Sound. Are we safe not pre-booking a specific cruise and just showing up? Any recommendations for particular companies? Is the Discovery Center worth doing?

2) We know going to Doubtful Sound is a full day. We are not planning an overnight in Doubtful Sound, just a day tour. Should we pre-book this? Any particular company?

3) We are most likely going to skip skiing and just go tubing for an hour or so one morning at the Remarkables. The website says we should prebook. Anyone know if this is really necessary?

Thanks!
