JUCY Cruise - Premium Milford Sound Cruise

Add to List

JUCY Cruise welcomes you aboard their new premium vessel, the Gem of the Sound, providing year-round cruises in breath-taking Milford Sound.

Our premium three-level catamaran offers extensive indoor and outdoor viewing, and her unique glass roofs and large viewing decks allow you to marvel at Milford Sound from every angle.

Sit back and relax in comfortable booth seating as HD cameras project live outdoor footage onto TV screens throughout the vessel, ensuring you don’t miss a moment of Milford.

Our scenic cruise travels the length of Milford Sound and out to the Tasman Sea, bringing you up close and personal to Fiordland flora and fauna.

Keep an eye out for New Zealand fur seals basking on rocks, playful dolphins who occasionally come to surf the wave of the boat, and if you’re lucky, you may catch a glimpse of the rare Fiordland Crested Penguin (August – November).

Our knowledgeable skippers provide entertaining and informative commentary throughout the cruise, and there are multilingual information sheets available on board too.

Complimentary tea and coffee is provided, and there is a fully licenced bar serving espresso coffees, alcoholic beverages and assorted snacks.

Premium Milford Cruise

It was a wet and windy day in Milford Sound, which all added to the experience. Whilst we couldn’t see the peaks due to cloud the abundance of spectacular, cascading waterfalls more than made it for this. The boat was fantastic, and the crew were friendly, knowledgeable, encouraging, and very polite. Highly recommend this cruise.

Absolutely fantastic!

Highly recommend this cruise - we have been to Milford Sound several times with different companies and the Jucy cruise far exceeded the others. The captain was knowledgeable and showed us things we’d missed on previous cruises. Sterling falls was particularly great! If you’re going to do a cruise in Milford Sound, make it this one!

Perfect experience

We lucked out with perfect, sunny weather. Our afternoon cruise had only a total of about ten passengers, including us. The boat is new and beautiful. The crew were friendly and helpful. We ended up encountering several dolphins and stayed with them (or rather, they stayed with us) for some time; this is apparently quite rare though. Really great experience. Multiple outdoor areas to witness the splendor of the sound. Highly recommended.

unexpected cruise change

although the milford sound trip is ok in bad weather, but disappointed that premium cruise trip was changed and gathered to another normal boat without any apology just because not enough passengers.

From JUCY Cruise - Premium Milford Sound Cruise

Hi Chris, The road had been closed and the opening was delayed which meant we could not operate the 11:00am cruise you were originally booked on. No one had arrived by at Milford by this time. Weather related Milford road closures is no ones fault but something we all have to work around. When you checked in you were given two options, to go on the next available cruise or on the same boat your were originally booked on but on the next departure on that boat, which was at 1:45pm. You chose the next available departure. Your choice! To say that the change was made was due to insufficient numbers when it was because of the road closure is misleading and simply untrue. It was a weather related issue. You were provided choices and you chose the cruise you travelled on. JUCY Cruise Team

Beautiful boat, fabulous tour

Rainy day but our skipper “fjord” made it fun and interesting. We saw all the key sites. Kym the assistant was lovely too. Highly recommend this tour as good timing at late morning and stunning luxury boat which is safe and dry in the event of wet weather. Recommend this company.
