Milford Sound Cruises
Milford Sound overnight cruise

Take the time to enjoy the best of Milford Sound with a leisurely cruise aboard one of our vessels, The Haven, The Mariner, The Sinbad or The Sovereign. Exploring the length of the fiord, you’ll learn about the region’s history and benefit from the knowledge of your specialist nature guide. Experience the cool spray of a waterfall as you cruise close to sheer rock faces, and watch out for dolphins, seals and the rare Fiordland crested penguins.

Our experienced skippers tailor each Milford Sound cruise, considering the weather and recent wildlife sightings, ensuring you’ll see the best Milford Sound has to offer.

Informative, participative and relaxed, a scenic cruise is the perfect way to experience what’s been called the “eighth wonder of the world”.

Milford is by far the best known of all of the fiords in New Zealand and is the only one that can be accessed by road. It is approximately 16km from the head of the fiord to the open sea, which means visitors can comfortably travel the length of the fiord to open ocean and return on one of the many cruise options available in one and a half to two hours cruising time.

Milford Sounds breath taking scenery draws many tourists each day – between 550,000 and 1 million per year. New Zealand’s Milford Sound is one of the most visited tourist spots in the country. Almost all tourists going to the sound take one of the boat tours which usually last between 1–2 hours. There is also the option of extended overnight cruises on Milford Sound.

Milford Sound experiences a lot of rainfall each year which can create lots of temporary yet spectacular waterfalls throughout the sound, some a thousand metres high. The rainfall in the sound can be as much as 250 mm during 24 hours.

In Milford Sound you will find the remarkable Mitre Peak – standing an astounding 1,692 metres above sea level. It is certainly an impressive sight and makes for some amazing photographs.
