Milford Sound Cruises

Milford Sound is part of the spectacular Fiordland National Park in the South West of New Zealand. The national park also includes:

  • Dusky Sound
  • Doubtful Sound

Cruising into Milford Sound you will be confronted with the towering Mitre Peak on the right and the breathtaking Stirling Falls on the left. The latter is one of the few permanent waterfalls, so you can admire the sight of it all year round.

Make sure you are on the constant look out, one blink and you will miss the amazing wildlife of Milford Sound:

  • Seals
  • Penguins
  • Bottlenose dolphins

Explore the small Milford Sound settlement with its vast array of hiking trails that last from a few minutes to 5 days long.

Milford Sound does have the reputation of being the wettest place in New Zealand, however, don’t let that put you off – the rain will show off the waterfalls in full glory.

Milford Sound is one of the most popular cruise destinations in New Zealand and here are just a couple of reasons why:

  • Spectacular scenery
  • Wildlife
  • Hiking
  • Great local food
