A night on board the Milford Mariner gives you an incredible look at some of the most beautiful surroundings in New Zealand. Admire unobstructed views of the towering brush-covered cliffs, enjoy a buffet dinner on the water, and wake up to the dawn in one of the most beautiful places on earth.

Built in the style of a traditional coastal trading scow, the 131-foot-long (40-metre) Milford Mariner carries up to 60 passengers for a spectacular journey through the Sound. Set out from the wharf in the late afternoon to cruise the full length of the fjord, and listen as a specialist nature guide explains the history and geology of the area.

The cruise gives you plenty of time to view the spectacular waterfalls, rainforest, mountains and wildlife along the coast. Keep an eye out for seals, dolphins, and penguins as you sail to a sheltered cove, where you can join your guide and explore in the vessel's small boats and kayaks, go for a swim, or simply lounge on deck and admire this amazing place.

As evening falls, enjoy a delicious carvery buffet in the dining saloon, prepared fresh by an onboard chef. Relax in the company of your fellow travellers or indulge in some stargazing before you retire to your private cabin.

In the morning, dine on a hearty breakfast before you head out to the Tasman Sea and explore some more of Milford Sound as the vessel glides back to port.
