Overview
Cruise Milford Sound all the way to the Tasman Sea aboard a spacious vessel with indoor cabins and outdoor decks designed for viewing the gorgeous scenery and wildlife in any weather. The Milford Sound cruise can be booked on its own or combined with round-trip coach transport from selected hotels in Te Anau or Queenstown for a full day of exploring Fiordland National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
What to Expect
If adding transport to this Milford Sound cruise, meet a driver at your hotel in Queenstown or Te Anau. From Queenstown, the journey to Milford Sound is four hours, and it’s a 2-hour drive from Te Anau. Both journeys pass through beautiful mountain landscapes including the Hollyford Valley, the Darran Mountains, and rainforest canyons, and there will be plenty of breaks to stretch and take photos along the way.

Upon arrival at Milford Sound, board a cruise for the trip along Milford Sound, where you’ll be flanked by soaring cliffs and waterfalls. Enjoy fresh air on deck, or stay warm in an indoor cabin that’s stocked with hot tea and water. This is the perfect place to watch for dolphins, seals, and rare penguins, and you’ll have unobstructed views of Mitre Peak and the Tasman Sea before returning to shore.
