Milford Sound Cruise-for-a-Cause

Getting there

The journey to Milford Sound is just as spectacular as the destination itself.  Milford Sound is around 5-6 hours (one-way) from Queenstown and around 3 hours from Te Anau by road.  Our coach drivers are extremely knowledgeable about the area, its history and local flora and fauna and will provide you with informative commentary along the way.

You could also drive yourself to Milford.

By far the most satisfying way to experience Milford (or Doubtful) Sound is to do an overnight cruise; it gives you more time in the fjord when it's at its best—first thing in the morning and early evening.
