Milford Sound is simply like no other place on Earth. With majestic peaks that tower hundreds of metres both above and below sea level, cascading waterfalls and pristine rainforest, it’s undoubtedly the most spectacular of New Zealand’s thirteen fiords.
Not only is the landscape phenomenal – the natural wildlife here is abundant too. Seals, dolphins and penguins can all be spotted from above the water on your scenic Fiordland Discovery overnight boat cruise, while rare black coral, lobsters and schools of fish can be viewed as the boat’s ROV (“HD ROV”- HD for “high definition” video, ROV for “remotely operated vehicle”) delves deep into the sea.
The natural wonders of Milford Sound can be enjoyed at dawn, dusk or underneath the stars on our luxury overnight boat Fiordland Jewel.
Exclusive charters are available - Day, Overnight, and Multiday – upon request. Our cruises are guided by expert crew, are fully catered, with all equipment supplied.
During this time, you’ll discover over thirteen natural wonders of Milford Sound and its surrounds, as well as a variety of flora and fauna, all from the comfort of our luxurious nine-cabin boat. Drinks and dinner are served in the evening, with a delicious breakfast the following morning.
As with any Milford Sound experience, your itinerary – including departure times, activities, number of hours cruising and mooring station – can vary depending on the weather.
A front can result in heavy rainfall and incredible waterfalls, but it can also restrict whether our vessel can travel to the mouth of the fiord. On calm days our skipper can cruise beyond the mouth of the fiord, into the Tasman Sea; on rougher days it’s more enjoyable to remain in calmer waters.
Luxury connections are available from Te Anau or Queenstown.
No EFTPOS or CREDIT CARD facilities are available on the boat.
Please bring NZ cash/currency with you for additional beverages and purchases from the cash-bar aboard. One pre-dinner drink is included in your ticket.
