Milford Sound Sightseeing Cruise including Optional Lunch

    What to Expect
    Make your way to the Milford Wharf Visitor Centre and board the boat for your Milford Sound cruise. Peer out of the large viewing windows of the vessel or head to the outdoor decks to spot South Island marine life, such as bottlenose dolphins, fur seals and penguins in what Rudyard Kipling described as the ‘Eighth Natural Wonder of the World.’ 

    While you cruise along the southern side of Milford Sound out to the Tasman Sea and return up the northern side, your crew describes the natural features such as Bowen Falls and Stirling Falls that descend from towering slopes into the serene waters of the deep fiord, nestled in World Heritage–listed Fiordland National Park. See points of interest like Seal Point and snap postcard-worthy pics of Mitre Peak, which reaches a height of 5,551 feet (1,692 meters).

    Enjoy complimentary tea and coffee on board, and dig into a provided lunch (if option selected) before your cruise ends at Milford Wharf.

    Our trip to Milford Sound was awesome. Picked up promptly by Jamie and back by the allocated time. Jamie was very informative and we did lots of stops, small walks. Morning tea was beaut as was our prearranged lunch. Saw so much we would not have seen had we done this ourselves.

    Unfortunately, the quality of views couldn’t redeem the so called “international buffet” experience. The cruise captain was informative, the staff were polite, the views were amazing. However, it was hard to enjoy it all when we were soooooooo hungry. The lunch offered on board

    If you are driving yourself and are directed to the “Overflow car lot “ be aware that the quick free bus shuttle takes you straight to the Ferry Terminal from where the boats leaves. That is - it does not stop at the Cafe which is really “on the way”.. The Cafe to pick up
