  • Spot Fiordland flora and fauna with the friendly crew, and learn the local insights from our knowledgeable skipper

Discover the best of Milford Sound on a scenic cruise aboard a spacious and comfortable catamaran.

Cruise capacity is capped to allow for plenty of room to roam the vast viewing decks, and ensuring no squabbling for space during photo ops!

Choose to relax in the comfortable interior cabins, or visit the outdoor decks to breathe in the sights and sounds of the fiord.

The famed fabulous scenery is guaranteed to leave you speechless as you are spoiled with ancient rainforest, towering cliffs, cascading waterfalls and magnificent views.

The jovial and cheery crew are on hand throughout the cruise to share their wealth of local knowledge, take those all-important photos, and join you to feel the spray as the boat noses close to Stirling Falls for a refreshing finale!

You are welcome to visit the skipper in the open wheelhouse who can help you spot seals lounging on rocks, look out for dolphins curiously coming for a surf, or perhaps even a Fiordland Crested Penguin if the time is right.

Enjoy complimentary tea and coffee throughout the cruise, with the option to purchase further hot and cold beverages and refreshments from the on-board Cafe Bar.

Comfy trip

For non-native and native English speakers, the commentary was mumbled quite a bit and hard to catch. Otherwise, a fine cruise on a perfect day!

No communication for last call

We had reached Milford Sound early but due a long queue for paying parking we reached the eco tours counter one minute before departure. They had my number and never called me for the last call before departure. Moreover they asked me to pay for the next cruise(which a definite downgrade). Seems like they wait for people to get late and make more money out of them.

From Eco Tours Fiordland - Milford Sound Cruise

We ask people to check-in 30mins prior to their cruise departure. In effect, you were 29mins late. We are very busy during check-in time and we don't know who is going to be late or not during this process. If you had arrived 30mins earlier you will not have had a problem. Boarding closes 5mins before departure as the boat is being untied. For health and safety reasons people are not permitted to board during this procedure. Harbour control dictates boat movement s in the harbour and we need to be ready at departure time. You were ask to pay a nominal rate so we could transfer you. We could have asked you to go to another operator directly and pay their full rate, but we wanted to assist you getting on a cruise having driven all the way to Milford Sound even though we were not responsible for your lateness.

Great but too Crowded!!!!

I have definitely enjoyed the scenic views around, and the guide was great, but the cruise was too much crowded that it was getting quite difficult to even move from one place to another. Filled with quite a lot of people! Would have loved if there were few people so everyone gets a fair chance to see the lovely views around.
