What you can expect

Locally owned and operated, explore the 8th wonder of the world with the original Red Boats on our Milford Sound Nature Cruise. Feel the full force of Stirling Falls, marvel at the incredible scenery and yarn with our skipper in the open wheelhouse.

Begin your cruise by boarding a large, modern catamaran at Milford Wharf. From there, ride the calm waters of Milford Sound and travel down the south side of the fjord towards the Tasman Sea. Stop at waterfalls that cascade from the rainforest rockery and step into their spray if you're feeling brave.

Along the way, keep your camera close by as you look out for New Zealand's seals relaxing on the rocks. If you're lucky, spot dolphins and penguins swimming nearby. As your cruise moves out to the head of the fiord, see towering mountains, hanging valleys, and ancient alpine forests. On your way back to the wharf, listen to your expert crew members discussing the sound's natural history.

Lunch options are available but must be booked before departure
