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.

Super value for money

Did the 3 PM tour. I found the operator to offer a very good cruise at a price hard to beat. Super value for money.

Great day and total must see!

We had a fantastic trip and were very impressed by the scenery. The only thing that could have improved it would be a better speaker system as we missed quite a bit of the information as we couldn’t hear very well. The driver was brilliant when we could hear him and very informative! Would absolutely recommend.

Enjoyable

Most of these cruises do the same thing. This boat is smaller than some which meant it could get very close to the cliffs and waterfalls. We had fantastic weather and there is a large viewing deck and also viewing on the bow. Coffee and hot chocolate are reasonably priced. The hot chocolate was good, according to my son. Watch out for the skipper’s bad jokes.
