What you can expect

Discover the staggering beauty of Milford Sound on this 2-hour cruise. Travel down the south side of the fjord, out to the Tasman Sea, and then return along the north side. Take in the breathtaking scenery and enjoy full commentary from your expert crew members on the natural history of the sound.

Begin your scenic cruise by boarding a large, modern catamaran at Milford Wharf. From there, ride the calm waters of Milford Sound and travel down the south side of the fjord towards the Tasman Sea. Stop at waterfalls that cascade from the rainforest rockery and step into their spray if you're feeling brave.

Along the way, keep your camera close by as you look out for New Zealand's seals relaxing on the rocks. If you're lucky, spot dolphins and penguins swimming nearby. As your cruise moves out to the head of the fiord, see towering mountains, hanging valleys, and ancient alpine forests. On your way back to the wharf, listen to your expert crew members discussing the sound's natural history.

While onboard, enjoy a wide selection of fine food, from tasty snacks to a Picnic Lunch, as well as an ever ready bar (all at your own expense).
