Full description

Depart from Queenstown and travel to Milford Sound for a cruise of the fjord. Your driver will share their extensive knowledge of the area as your drive down the picturesque Milford Road. See local natural landmarks, such as Mirror Lakes, Knobs Flat, and the famous Eglington Valley.

On your cruise, head past the iconic Mitre Peak and sail past St. Annes Point Lighthouse. Enjoy commentary from your skipper as you pass the mighty Lady Bowen Falls, Lion Mountain, Copper Point, Seal Rock, Stirling Falls, and Fairy Falls.

Head out into the Tasman Sea and keep an eye out for seals basking in the sun, pods of dolphins, or rare Fjordland Crested Penguins that can be found seasonally within the region. Keep warm with complimentary tea and coffee in the lounge and take in the scenery through expansive windows. Venture onto the outdoor viewing decks to breathe in the pristine alpine air. Head back to Queenstown with some photo stops along the way.
