What You Can Expect

Milford Sound Sightseeing Cruise including Optional Lunch

Milford Sound Sightseeing Cruise including Optional Lunch

Make your way to the Milford Wharf Visitor Centre and board the boat for your Milford Sound cruise — a journey that takes just under 2 hours. Peer out of the large viewing windows of the vessel or head to the outdoor decks to spot South Island marine life, such as bottlenose dolphins, fur seals and penguins in what Rudyard Kipling described as the ‘Eighth Natural Wonder of the World.’ 

While you cruise along the southern side of Milford Sound out to the Tasman Sea and return up the northern side, your crew describes the natural features such as Bowen Falls and Stirling Falls that descend from towering slopes into the serene waters of the deep fiord, nestled in World Heritage–listed Fiordland National Park. See points of interest like Seal Point and snap postcard-worthy pics of Mitre Peak, which reaches a height of 5,551 feet (1,692 meters).

Enjoy complimentary tea and coffee on board, and dig into a provided lunch (if option selected) before your cruise ends at Milford Wharf.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Great helpful staff. They slotted me in for 2.00pm trip after I missed my 9.00am early starter.
Picturesque views. Good value. Cannot beat the package.
Found this tour far better priced, adventurous, helpful staff and than the highly publicized, expensive, Doubtful sounds overnight cruise run by The Fiordland Navigator.

Second time going with this company so it must be good! Nice comfortable boat and captain gives a good overview of the Sound and even dips into waterfalls to give passengers a fun experience. If you're lucky with the weather it impacts the enjoyment of this tour massively!

Beautiful tour of Milford Sound, clean and accommodating crew. It was amazing how close the captain could get to the waterfalls. Knowledgeable about the birds and seals etc. like getting a little history of how the sound was formed. Thanks for a delightful couple hours.
