Milford Sound Scenic Cruise - Real Journeys

 

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.

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

    Great cruise

    Must do if you visit Milford Sound The weather wasn't amazing but still got some amazing views and was great out on deck. Seals were cute and glad we got to see them. Tip for fellow travellers allow 3 hrs to reach Milford from Te Anau

    If its cloud and raining dont go...

    My wife and I were really looking forward to go to Milford Sound after we saw some stunning pictures and reviews in the internet. Well, I imagine that should be because the day that we did the cruise was cloudy and raining and really spoiled everything. We could see almost nothing and it didnt look like the same pictures we saw previously. Dont get me wrong, it probably is a stunning place but with a good weather.
