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.

    An out of this world must do experience

    This tour is a must do! Milford Sound is out of this world! Even though the weather wasn’t great for us, it was still such a magical experience! Good commentary and knowledge from staff, and good facilities on board.

    Great cruise

    Great cruise, would recommend the 11:20am slot in terms of travel to and leaving from Milford Sound. The cruise itself is well staffed with knowledgeable crew, on time and explains key points of interest in both English and Mandarin. Food and drinks available for sale on board, would highly recommend enjoying a warm melting choc chip cookie (or a few) whilst taking in the beautiful surroundings - simple but unbelievably satisfying and surreal experience.

    Best cruise ever!

    Had the best time on this cruise! The Jucy guys were hilarious on board, making us feel very comfortable and lots of laughs were had. We got a free brunch cake with sauces and cups of juice for a wee snack and then there was free tea for the whole ride. The rain cleared as we boarded so couldn't have picked a better time to see the waterfalls in their prime! Thanks Jucy!

    Boat cruise

    Was a nice cruise . Loved the waterfall spray. When i did booking the advertisement said we would go to the opening of the tasman sea but they cut it short. We could only see the sea but never went near it. Customers should be given what the product has been advertised as.

    From Eco Tours Fiordland - Milford Sound Cruise

    We are sorry the cruise did not meet your expectations. We don't advertise that we go into the Tasman Sea, just to the Tasman Sea, although the the Tasman Sea is not mentioned at all in the Bookme description. The point where the Fiord ends and the Tasman Sea begins is Dale Point. We have had a lot of rough seas in the Tasman Sea recently. Going into the Tasman Sea would be pointless. There is nothing in the Tasman Sea except water. All the interesting sights are within the Fiord. This is what our customers come to see. When the Tasman Sea is rough, as it has been lately, it only serves to make people ill (sea sick). I am pretty sure this it not the experience that most of our customers pay for so we opt to stay in the sheltered waters of the Fiord where the waters are calm. JUCY Cruise Team
