Top of any to-do list in Milford Sound is a cruise on the fiord. Join Southern Discoveries, Milford Sound's original cruise operator on a cruise on the fiord. Designed for nature lovers, these cruises are all about waterfalls and wildlife, with an onboard nature guide to keep an eye out for famous locals like dolphins, seals and, if you're lucky, the rare Fiordland Crested Penguin.
No same day bookings - pre-bookings accepted only due to limited capacity. Please do not drive in hoping to secure a site, we guarantee we will not have one for you.
Optional add on - Milford Sound Lodge is just minutes from the world-renowned Milford Track, so why not take this opportunity to more of Milford? Take the water taxi transfer with Fiordland Outdoors Co. from Deepwater Basin to Sandfly Point and step onto the Milford Track. Walk at your own pace as you explore the wonders of Fiordland National Park and discover why the Milford Track is considered one of the world's finest walks. Pass through mighty beech and rimu forest and a backdrop of birdsong. In less than two hours of walking, you can reach Giant Gate Falls, a highlight of the Milford Track and the perfect place to stop for a picnic. (Available October - May)
