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.

Beautiful scenery and a very comfortable trip.
I took the 9 AM cruise and was surprised that a very good breakfast was provided. I guess I did not read the fine print.

The weather had been awful for the previous 14 hours, torrential rain and wind. But just before our trip it cleared and we were able to see Milford Sound in all its glory. The company provided a nice buffet lunch which we sat down at ate first at a table reserved for us the rest of the trip we were up on deck seeing all the sights. Very good commentary which everyone was able to hear too!

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.

Thoroughly enjoyed our trip. The lunch obviously catered more for the Asians, but nevertheless it was a lovely experience.
