Prepare to soak up the beauty and grandeur of what has been called the "eighth wonder of the world" with RealNZ.

Departing from either Queenstown on-board a luxury coach, sit back, relax and take in the stunning location on one of the most scenic drives in New Zealand along Milford Road, while enjoying on-board commentary and various photo stops along the way.

Upon reaching Milford, you'll take a relaxing cruise on board the spacious vessel which boasts fantastic outdoor decks and indoor lounges specifically designed to optimise your viewing experience.

To ensure you experience the very best of Milford Sound on the day, your knowledgeable skipper has planned each trip based on the weather and recent wildlife sightings. As we cruise the full length of the Fiord you'll witness the majestic beauty of Milford first hand while we cruise right up close to grand waterfalls and sheer rock faces, and discover local wildlife such as dolphins, seals and, in season, the rare Fiordland crested penguins.

Enjoy the relaxing scenic journey back on the coach to your accommodation.

Snacks and drinks are available to purchase during your cruise (cash only) or you are welcome to bring a picnic along to enjoy.

Way better than driving to Milford sound

Luke is knowledge and awesome, glass roof was a game changer ( those glasses needs cleaning though) Pretty amazing trip to Milford. I drove to Milford 2 times before but taking the bus was way more enjoyable and relaxed. My mom enjoyed the trip very well, she’s visiting NZ and she had a memorable experience . Thank you

Amazing experience with the best guide

Peanut was an outstanding guide, his friendly personality and interesting explanations made our trip unforgettable! We had rain and snow which was very exciting and from the boat we got to see dolphins and a seal. The views at Milford Sound are breathtaking as well as the roadtrip, specially the last part of the drive. Definitely recommend it !
