Cruise Milford Sound

Cruise the idyllic waters of Milford Sound and admire the magnificent scenery up close. Catch views of dolphins, penguins and seals basking on rocks. Milford Sound is the most famous and accessible of the glacier carved fiords in Fiordland. Deep blue waters, cascading waterfalls, sheer cliffs, dense rain forest, towering mountains and fascinating wildlife; it’s all here waiting for you.

Most cruises also offer a visit the Milford Sound Underwater Observatory as part of their package.


Day Cruises

A variety of daytime cruises are available for visitors to Milford, on vessels ranging from the very large to the small. Launches travel down the south side of Milford Sound, out to the Tasman Sea and return up the north side, stopping off at all points of interest. Cruises feature commentary on the flora and fauna of the Sound and on most either hot meals are provided or lunches can be purchased.


Overnight Cruises

Twilight is a magical time at Milford Sound, and its yours to enjoy as you cruise throughout this magnificent fiord. Launches cruise out towards the open sea before anchoring in sheltered cove. Experience the fiord at your own pace as you kayak around sheltered bays, explore the shoreline in a tender vessel, go swimming in the fresh water or simply sit back and unwind. An on-board nature guide will be on hand throughout the cruise to answer all your questions and give interesting commentaries about this spectacular fiord.

Cruises anchor for the night in Harrison Cove, and provide a variety of sleeping cabins on-board the launch. In the evening, retreat to your private cabin, or settle back and enjoy the company of fellow passengers.
