Scenic Cruise - Departing Milford Sound

See incredible Milford Sound with Real Journeys

Amazing vistas await you at Milford Sound - towering mountains that rise straight up from the sea, rainforest-clad cliffs and spectacular waterfalls. Our purpose-built Scenic Cruise vessels have observation lounges with large windows and great viewing decks to ensure you don't miss a thing.

Key highlights of the Real Journeys Scenic Cruises:

1. Spacious vessels means you can spread out, chill out and take in the sights.

2. See Mitre Peak and stop at some of the waterfalls, close enough to get wet from the spray.

3. Travel the length of the fiord right up to the mouth.

4. View seals basking on the rocks and possibly dolphins and penguins.

5. Receive informative commentary in several languages from our friendly crew. (*except 1.45pm, which is English only commentary)

6. Enjoy a variety of food options on board: picnic lunch (needs to be pre-ordered), café style food and complementary tea and coffee.

    Milford Sound Scenic Cruise

    Unfortunately it was raining and very cloudy when I went but it just added to the mystery of the area. There were so many amazing water falls.
