Milford Sound Cruises

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

Our experienced skippers tailor the cruise to take into consideration weather and recent wildlife sightings, ensuring you’ll see the best that Milford Sound has to offer on the day.

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

Getting there

The journey to Milford Sound via the famous Milford Road is just as remarkable as the destination itself.

Milford Sound is around 5-6 hours (one-way) from Queenstown and around 3 hours from Te Anau. 

If you are self-driving from Queenstown, try to stay overnight in Te Anau as the trip to Milford and back from Queenstown can get very tiring.  Also, leave plenty of time to stop at the many scenic trails and lookouts along the way.

What to bring

Non-slip shoes/boots, waterproof jacket, warm sweater/fleece jacket, sunscreen/sunglasses, insect repellent and camera.
