What to expect

Explore the length of Milford Sound on a scenic cruise to the Tasman Sea and back aboard a modern catamaran. Enjoy the spectacle of sheer mountains rising vertically from the depths below, waterfalls dropping 160m into the fjord, seals, dolphins, and Maori legends. Milford Sound is a two-hour drive from Te Anau or four hours from Queenstown. Customers wishing to visit this extraordinary location that has been described by Rudyard Kipling as the 8th wonder of the world can either drive themselves or take one of our tours departing from either Queenstown or Te Anau.

The adventure begins with a stunning drive through breath-taking Fiordland National Park, a World Heritage Park via Eglington Valley. The journey is a delight for photographers and those that enjoy majestic landscapes. Not to be missed stops include Mirror Lakes, Lake Gun, Lower Hollyford lookout, Monkey Creek, and Homer tunnel.

Two-hour cruises are made in one of our modern three-deck catamarans taking passengers the length of the fjord to the Tasman Sea and back. Learn about local Maori Legends and why Captain Cook failed to discover Milford Sound during a full commentary. See seals from meters away and occasionally bottlenose dolphin and the rare Fiordland Crested Penguin. Stop by towering waterfall dropping from hanging valleys directly into the fjord where rainbows can be witnessed and a freshwater shower can be experienced beneath the 160m high Sterling Falls.
