Milford Haven - Milford Sound Cruise

Milford Haven proudly offers you the whole Milford Sound cruise experience, transporting you into another world and guaranteeing an incomparable and unforgettable experience...

Cruising Milford is one of New Zealand’s truly unique experiences, rich in nature and diverse culture - some say there’s nowhere quite like it on earth & we agree.


The Milford Haven proudly offers you the whole cruise experience, at a sweet price. We will transport you into another world and encapsulate a feeling of freedom while providing incomparable and unforgettable memories.


Our 2-hour cruise allows plenty of time to get up close and personal with the incredible scenery and cascading waterfalls while we cruise the full length of Milford Sound to the Tasman Sea.


Sit back and soak up the beauty of surrounding waterfalls, you can even order a flat white or a full lunch from our carefully crafted café menu. (Please bring cash as credit facilities can be difficult for us in the fiords – full café onboard).


If you’re lucky, some of our Milford wildlife may join you for the experience. Blue-footed penguins, seals or a pod of dolphins could help lead you through the Fiord offering amazing photo opportunities!


We challenge you to delve deeper, go further than the average experience and go beyond with us.

2hrs of beauty

Well worth every cent. The drive into Milford was beautiful. A complimentary lunch on board of pumpkin soup was lovely. Great commentary from the captain while cruising, although a bit hard to gear in some areas of the boat. Plenty of viewing areas both in and outside. The scenery really does have to be seen to be believed and Go Orange totally met all our needs on this cruise.

Best to go in the morning

Very well run. We boarded and arrived back at the deck on time. There was no line for us to check in for our tickets. On board commentary was very interesting! We sailed right out to the Tasman see, saw some seas and got to feel the water of the waterfall on the way back in. Food on board was varied and very reasonably priced. We did the 9am cruise which was very quiet, so we had lots of room to move around the boat. If it was busy, id imagine it wouldn’t be as comfortable and would get quiet noisy towards the back of the boat because of the engine. I’d definitely recommend go orange cruise. We loved it
