Absolutely Stunning

Jucy cruise was great, took us near the waterfall and provided original and funny commentary. Plenty of photo opportunities as well. Highly recommended to use when visiting Milford Sounds.

Incredible scenery

Definitely would recommend JUCY cruises. Great value for money compared to some of the other brands. Crew were all very friendly and helpful. Offer tea on board for free and coffee is cheap. Can also get hot food if you like. Would use them again!

Magnificent

The drive to Milford Sound was excellent, from the snow capped mountains to all the places to stop along the way. Just be careful of the Kea birds they will take rubber or plastic stripping off your car. The cruise was amazing as was the commentary.

Average

Milford Sound itself was amazing. We have spotted some seals. Also, the boat came really close to the waterfall. Other than that, it was an average experience because the boat was crowded, you couldn’t hear what the guide is saying. Next time I will choose a small boat with kayaks to actually enjoy this stunning place. Remember: parking at Milford Sound will cost you 30 NZD/3hr and you can stay for 3h max.

Nature really did it to us

Me and my boy Duncan got tickets for $50, didn’t really know what to expect, but it ended up being one of the best days of my travels by far!! Cruise was absolutely all good, the driver knew is stuff too - we saw fur seals, penguins, bottlenose dolphins, and the waterfalls were amazing too!!! Definitely caught Milford Sound on a good day. All the the staff very welcoming on the boat too. Would definitely recommend, an ABSOLUTR BARGAIN!!!
