Eco Tours Fiordland - Milford Sound Cruise

Enjoy a unique and simply unforgettable experience of the breathtaking Milford Sound aboard Milford Sounds' friendliest cruise!

Highlights

  • Soak up the beauty of Milford Sound aboard the fabulous "Maiden of Milford" vessel
  • Our modern catamaran is built for optimal viewing and has three spacious decks
  • Visit iconic locations, cruise beneath cliffs and get right up close to cascading waterfalls
  • Abundant wildlife viewings of seal colonies, dolphins and penguins depending on the season

Discover New Zealand's most spectacular natural attraction, Milford Sound by way of a comfortable cruise aboard our modern catamaran, the "Maiden of Milford".

Relax in the comfortable interior, perfectly positioned to capture optimal views or walk around its three spacious decks and soak up the breath-taking scenery on offer while enjoying the informative on-board commentary.

We'll travel just beneath the sheer cliff faces of the mountains that rise from the depths of the fiord, and get within touching distance of towering waterfalls - stand on the decks and get close enough to be doused by the spray!

As we visit iconic locations in this natural slice of paradise, make sure to look out for native wildlife including dolphins, seal colonies and the rare Fiordland Crest Penguin - you'll want to make sure your camera is at the ready in case you spot some!

To top it all off, you can purchase a selection of food on-board including tasty wraps from our Pita Pit outlet as well as drinks and espresso coffee.

    All the boats see the same sights; why pay extra?!

    We booked the first trip of the day on a changeable day at Milford Sound. The boat was one of the first to leave the terminal and looking back you could see the others following the same route. The Jucy boat was modern and clean with food and drink available to buy, and a free brunch cake (a glorified potato rosti), orange juice and bottomless cups of tea on board. Our guide, Andrew, was absolutely phenomenal. Genuinely the best tour guide I've had. Greeted us onto the boat, had cracking banter, knew his stuff, was happy to pose for photos with other passengers and chat to us about walks on the drive back all while driving, giving out tour info and contacting base. 10/10 experience!

    Breathtaking

    Milford Sound never disappoints! Breathtaking scenery as always. Our trip was informative and educational. The captain and crew were very professional, kind and funny. The vessel was clean and tidy, toilets included.

    Excellent cruise

    We were quite lucky with the weather I guess. We sailed under the clear skies on a sunny morning. Staff on the jucy boat was very friendly,smiling, positive and taking good care of cleanliness on board (continually collecting empty tea cups). The cruise itself was fun and a commentary was just a cherry on the pie- informative and entertaining too! Very well done!! -v

    First but not the last!

    Definitely worth the drive. I just wished i brought my swim wear with me to experience getting wet under the falls. I will go back for sure and be ready for it! Thank you for the lovely experience! New Zealand is really breath taking! 🙂 and thumbs up to our tour guide in the cruise, sadly i forgot his name because i was busy trying to capture a photo of the dolphin! 🙂 thank you!
