Mitre Peak Cruises lead the way in small, scenic cruises of spectacular Milford Sound – considered one of the most beautiful places in the world. Offering regular two-hour trips through the fiord and out into the Tasman Sea, giving our guests the opportunity to enter Milford Sound from the outside, approaching it just as the first sealers did at the end of the 18th century.
Our informative hosts point out scenic Milford Sound highlights along the way, such as the Lady Bowen Falls (dropping 160 metres seaward), Sinbad Gully (a classic example of a hanging valley), snow-capped Mount Pembroke, and the awe-inspiring Mitre Peak itself, towering 1692 metres above sea level.
Having smaller boats (approx. 20 metres in length) allows Mitre Peak Cruises to navigate closer to the shoreline, getting our guests up close to the incredible surroundings. Purpose-built for the waters of Milford Sound, the boats make great viewing platforms should we encounter the local fur seal colonies – once nearly hunted to extinction – the rare Fiordland crested penguins or pods of dolphins.
