Join us on the ultimate boutique cruising experience, with day cruises, overnight cruises and multi-day cruises available. Explore majestic Fiordland aboard our unique, luxurious 5-star boat, the Fiordland Jewel, which features an on-board helipad, on-deck hot tub, kayaks and small boats for exploration, superb cuisine, and cash bar.

Our 4 hour day cruise trip begins with a helicopter fight through carved glacial valleys to Milford Sound to land aboard the Jewel. You will then be guided by our expert crew who will share with you the incredible natural wilderness and local wildlife. Relish the stunning fiord views while you enjoy a scrumptious lunch, featuring fresh local cuisine, such as blue cod, salmon, green-lipped mussels, lamb, and wild venison (when available).

Taking only 20 passengers a night, our overnight cruise includes exploration of Milford Sound, a three course dinner and full cooked and continental breakfast, and accommodation in nine luxury climate-controlled cabins; all with king-sized beds, ensuite bathrooms and majestic fiord and ocean views. 

Our 7-day cruises, also taking a maximum of 20 passengers, are tailored specifically for people who are interested in Fiordland's scenery, history and nature. We provide trips to the Doubtful, Breaksea and Dusky Sounds, and Preservation and Chalky Inlets so you can see all that this scenic slice of paradise has to offer. These enchanting areas are where much of New Zealand's European history began, with the early arrival of explorers, gold prospectors and sealers. We visit many of these historic sites including sites where Captain Cook landed. We also often leave the Jewel moored as we explore further by kayak, tender craft and on foot, with bush and beach walks.

A highlight of our cruises is witnessing the underwater life of the fiords via our state-of-the-art ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle), which explores the marine environment below the Jewel as you watch the footage from the comfort of the boat’s lounge.
