Float on the waters of the incredible Milford Sound during this short, guided cruise. One of New Zealand’s most iconic places, this fiord is where you’ll see mountains covered in vegetation, the imposing Mitre Peak and stunning Stirling Falls. Take a seat on one of the boat’s beanbag deck chairs and take in the once-in-a-lifetime view.

What to Expect

Once you're on board you will be introduced to your crew and after a short safety briefing the adventure will begin. With a 2 hour tour time you will enjoy a scenic cruise around the fiord with relaxed commentary. Your skipper will show you the unforgettable sights of Mitre Peak, Anita Bay, Stirling Falls and so much more. 

You will have plenty of space to roam around; the boat capacity is set to half its full potential and with indoor and outdoor seating you'll have a comfortable journey no matter the weather. For those who want to get a full tour of the vessel, there is an open wheelhouse policy so you're welcome to visit your skipper and say hello.

After 2 hours your skipper will bring you back to the Milford Sound Terminal where your journey began.

We were picked up at Queenstown at 6.20am as per schedule right on the dot. The road trip was very long. Had few stops for breakfast and toilets. The cruise was ok. All good.

Great experience and beautiful sights

We had a great time on the Milford Sound Cruise. The views of the fjord and waterfalls are spectacular. The skipper’s commentaries were very informative. It was very windy during the whole cruise but we enjoyed the experience.

I think it was a 4 hr bus ride from city centre of Queenstown. Multiple options with thee guys but you can get one with the bus trip included which is recommended.
