See Milford Sound up close on our fantastic day cruises. Informative and relaxed, our Nature Cruise is the perfect way to learn about what’s been called the “eighth wonder of the world”, while our Scenic Cruise introduces you to all of the sightseeing highlights, including Mitre Peak and the Pembroke Glacier.

On our leisurely Nature Cruise explore the full length of the fiord right out to the Tasman Sea (weather permitting), learn about the history, flora and fauna of the region with insightful and entertaining commentary from your specialist nature guide, experience the cool spray of a waterfall as we move in close to sheer rock faces, or watch out for dolphins, seals and, in season, the rare Fiordland Crested Penguins. Our Nature Cruises have a flexible, extended itinerary that gives you plenty of time to enjoy the scenery and take in the highlights. Our experienced skippers tailor the 2 hour 15 minute cruise to take into consideration weather and recent wildlife sightings, ensuring you’ll see the best that Milford Sound has to offer on the day.

For breathtaking, awe-inspiring scenery join us on a Scenic Cruise and enjoy spacious decks and relaxing observation lounges that are designed to maximise your viewing experience. From here you’ll see just what makes the New Zealand landscape so incredible – the sheer cliffs, massive waterfalls, glaciers and rainforest. Keen eyes may observe seals basking on the rocks or the local pod of dolphins streaking through the Sound. During the 1 hour 40 minute cruise, our crew provide commentaries in several languages (English, Mandarin, Japanese, and Korean).

Lunch options, a licensed bar, and snacks are available onboard both cruises at extra cost. Tea and coffee is complementary. Daily luxury coach connections from Queenstown and Te Anau plus fly out options from Milford Sound are available for passengers at extra cost. All ages are welcome, so come and enjoy a truly unforgettable Milford Sound experience with our friendly crews and modern vessels.
