Travel to Milford Sound on our brand new coach for the only day trip from Queenstown that includes a visit to the amazing Milford Sound Underwater Observatory!

Journey through spectacular natural landscapes as your local coach driver provides engaging and informative commentary and shows you the best short walks and photo stops along the Milford Road.

Upon arrival at Milford Sound, jump on-board our smallest boat for a fascinating Nature Cruise with fewer people. Soak up breath-taking scenic views as we really explore the beauty of the Fiord, and get within touching distance of impressive rock walls and right up close to Stirling Falls. Our specialist nature guides will share their local knowledge with lively and informative commentary, plus you'll enjoy a freshly prepared picnic lunch.

Visit Milford Sound Underwater Observatory and descend 60 steps down a spiral staircase into a spacious viewing chamber to discover the unique and beautiful environment hidden under the surface of Milford Sound. Immerse yourself in a mysterious undersea world and encounter the extraordinary rare black coral and colourful sea creatures teeming just below the surface.

We'll then cruise back to the Milford Sound Visitor Centre to re-join the coach for the comfortable return journey back to Queenstown.

Departure: Coach departs 8.15am everyday except Thursdays when the coach departs at 8.45am. Check-in is at Southern Discoveries Queenstown Visitor Centre, 110 Beach Street, Queenstown.

Milford Sound Small Coach and Nature Cruise

A brilliant coach driver he was funny and so informative I really learnt a lot and I have lived in NZ most of my life. He did all the right things at the right time even down to putting the movie on on the way home it was great. Probably one of the best coach trips I've done.
