Overview
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to take a Milford Sound cruise while visiting UNESCO-listed Fiordland National Park. Departing from Milford Wharf, this boat cruise glides past snow-capped Mitre Peak and waterfalls cascading down steep-walled mountains that rise straight up from the water. See Bowen Falls, Stirling Falls and Seal Point while searching the deep fiord for marine life including bottlenose dolphins and New Zealand fur seals.
What to Expect
Make your way to the Milford Wharf Visitor Centre and board the boat for your Milford Sound cruise — a journey that takes just under 2 hours. 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.

Nice cruise in a natural wonder!

I‘m not rating the superb landscape which you don‘t have to miss! I‘m rating the cruise: First of all, it‘s kind of confusing when you book. We booked the cruise with lunch for nearly 200 NZD for two persons. On board they told us that...More

This 3- hour cruise was amazing. We saw seals and penguins and cruised all the way to the sound’s outlet to the Tasman sea. The cruise also took us so close to a waterfall that we got wet. The staff was informative and the lunch...More
