The best thing about a day at Milford Sound is that the weather doesn’t matter! On a sunny day, it is beautiful, and on a wet day, it is spectacular! There are only 2 permanent waterfalls at Milford Sound, on a rainy day hundreds of temporary waterfalls can be seen cascading down the steep cliff faces.

Milford Sound is in the Fiordland National Park, which is part of the Te Wahipounamu World Heritage Site, covering 26,000km² and encompassing four national parks. It is widely considered to be one of the world’s top travel destinations.

At Cruise Milford, we know that you will have a wonderful and truly memorable day out on your Milford Sound cruise. We love sharing the natural beauty of this special place with visitors, and your captain will tell you all about the Fiord, its history and wildlife. Meet New Zealand fur seals, bottlenose dolphins and the rare Fiordland crested penguin (July – December).

Coach transport, private transfers and fix-wing/helicopter flights are available from Queenstown or Te Anau.

For further information, please call or email us and let us help you to make the most of this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
