Full Description

Experience the best that Fiordland has to offer by both coach and catamaran!

Hop aboard a modern coach, settle into a comfortable seat, and enjoy the stunning scenery, a wonderful commentary, and a journey of a lifetime.

Two hours after departing Queenstown, a stop is made in Te Anau, the Gateway to Fiordland, for a stretch of the legs, coffee break and the last of the WiFi! All phone signal is lost in the National Park, allowing you to fully absorb the spectaculary scenery.

Driving through the incredible Fiordland National Park, our talented coach drivers spill the secrets of their incredible backyard through historical and anecdotal storytelling. Plenty of stops are made for sublime photo opporutinties and scenic short walks before arriving at the main event; Milford Sound.

Climb aboard our Gem of the Sound catamaran; Milford Sound's only glass roof vessel!  The Gem has been specifically designed to capture the stunning views of Milford with its unique glass roofs and large viewing decks.

Our famously friendly skipper and crew are bursting with fun and factual Fiordland insights, and will help you spot local flora and fauna throughout the cruise.

There are plenty of indoor and outdoor seating options on our spacious vessel, or you can choose to head up top for those all important 360 degree views.

If you're feeling adventurous, why not join the crew for a free glacial shower as the boat noses under Stirling Falls !

Lunch is included in the tour and are served during the two hour cruise. There are meat, vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options for lunch.

If you're still feeling peckish, there is a Cafe Bar offering a selection of hot and cold snacks, beers, wines, berverages and other assorted refreshments. 

Return time to Queenstown is about 4.5 hours after the cruise, and a rest break stop will made in Te Anau on the return journey.

The day trip is 12 - 13 hours in total, and you will be dropped off at the same location as pick up.
