Milford Sound cruise

Milford Sound Nature Cruise

This trip will take you to Milford Sound from Te Anau on a shared, air-conditioned coach through astounding roadside scenery. Once in Milford you will board the Milford Mariner for a nature cruise of two and a half hours which leads you the full length of the sound and into the Tasman Sea.

The boat will visit hanging valleys, dramatic waterfalls, penguin and seal haunts while watching out for dolphins and orca. The onboard naturalist will give those that are interested a running commentary and when the conditions allow the sails will be unfurled for gentle motor-sailing.
