Amazing! 4.7/5 Wotif Guest Rating View all 10 Wotif Verified Reviews

Explore Milford Sound's stunning fjord from the water on this tranquil 3-hour cruise. As you take in the stunning beauty of the sound, savour a tasty lunch as well as a visit to the Milford Sound Underwater Observatory, New Zealand's only floating underwater observatory.

Meet your guide at Milford Wharf and board your modern cruise vessel. Cruise the calm waters of Milford Sound and travel through the fjord out to the Tasman Sea. Stop at the spectacular waterfalls and feel their splash as they rush from the ancient rainforest up high in the mountain.

While your local nature guide gives you informative commentary on the surrounding area, spot some native seals relaxing on the rocks, or if you're lucky, see bottlenose dolphins and crested penguins swimming in the distance.

Later, your cruise takes you to the floating Milford Sound Underwater Observatory. Learn about the natural history, geology and environment of the sound before you descend 32 feet (10 m) underwater for a unique view of the vibrant sea creatures below the surface.

Board your cruise back and enjoy a tasty gourmet picnic-style lunch before your catamaran makes its return to the wharf.

Very good day out. Got to see the fiords which was the goal. The underwater observatory was a very pleasant surprise. Turned out to be very interesting and well presented by their staff. We also got to see dolphins which was a real bonus. Only comment was there was no communication on boat to say when lunch was available and how much time till we got to observatory. We had to eat fast, but all in all a great day.
