  • Scenic cruise along the serene water of Milford Sound

  • Splash of gushing waterfalls from rainforest in mountains

  • Tasty & delectable gourmet picnic lunch included

  • Guided by an expert providing informative insight

  • See marine life at Milford Sound Underwater Observatory


Explore Milford Sound's stunning fjord from the water on this tranquil 3-hour cruise. As you take in the stunning beauty of the sound, savour a tasty lunch as well as a visit to the Milford Discovery Centre, New Zealand's only floating underwater observatory.

Meet your guide at Milford Wharf and board your modern catamaran. Cruise the calm waters of Milford Sound and travel through the fjord out to the Tasman Sea. Stop at the spectacular waterfalls and feel their splash as they rush from the ancient rainforest up high in the mountain.

While your local nature guide gives you informative commentary on the surrounding area, spot some native seals relaxing on the rocks, or if you're lucky, see bottlenose dolphins and crested penguins swimming in the distance. Later, your cruise takes you to the floating Milford Discovery Centre and Underwater Observatory. Learn about the natural history, geology and environment of the sound before you descend 32 feet (10 m) underwater for a unique view of the vibrant sea creatures below the surface.

Board your cruise back and enjoy a tasty gourmet picnic-style lunch before your catamaran makes its return to the wharf.
