What you need to know

Cruise around the stunning Milford Sound in Fiordland with this 1-hour 40-minute cruise with transfers from Queenstown. The journey begins by boarding the comfortable coach in Queenstown and winding through the region en route to Milford. The bus has giant windows and a glass roof, so you'll be treated to incredible views of the region as you're driven around.

Once arriving in Milford, you'll board the purpose-built sightseeing vessel to embark on your scenic cruise. You'll venture out of the dock and up close to cascading waterfalls to explore all the Sound has to offer. Keep your eyes peeled for local wildlife such as seals and dolphins as they frequent the area and are often popping their heads out to say hello or lounging on the rocks.

While on board you'll be treated to informative commentary teaching you all about the region's history and the animals that live here as well as pointing out any wildlife sightings along the journey.

The entire experience from start to finish with the transfers from Queenstown and back again lasts for almost 13-hours. Throughout the day you'll enjoy some incredible sightseeing and wildlife spotting opportunities that will help make some amazing memories.
