What you can expect

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 Sound Underwater Observatory, New Zealand's only floating underwater observatory.

Meet your guide at Milford Wharf and board your modern cruise vessel. 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 passionate skipper 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 Sound 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.
