Full Description

Enjoy an uncrowded, hassle-free and comfortable cruise in magnificent Milford Sound.

Hop on board and immerse yourself in some of the world's most breathtaking scenery while being treated to exemplary service from our engaged and knowledgable crew.

Our Gem of the Sound vessel has been specifically designed to capture the stunning views of Milford with its unique glass roofs and large viewing decks.

Our two hour cruises travel the length of the fiord, out to the Tasman Sea and back, getting you up close to various points of interest along the way.

Spot local flora and fauna from our spacious viewing decks, and learn the local Fiordland facts from our famously friendly skipper and crew. 

Soak up the 360 degree views from the open top viewing deck, and if you're brave enough, head to the bow for a free glacial shower as the boat noses under Stirling Falls!

Free tea and coffee is available throughout the cruise, and the onboard Cafe Bar offers hot & cold food options, beers, wines, beverages and other refreshments.

With borders closed to international visitors, there has never been a better opportunity to explore your pristine backyard and experience magical Milford without the crowds.
