All of our Milford Sound tours include the days transport with one of our knowledgeable guides, an unforgettable scenic cruise on one of the smallest vessels on Milford Sound, and loads of additional sightseeing stops. A picnic lunch can be added for a small additional price.
Our Milford Sound scenic cruise is operated by another locally owned company called Mitre Peak cruises.
Mitre Peak are ideal partners in providing a great small group experience because they too focus on managing passenger numbers to ensure better customer satisfaction.
The cruise is approx. 1 hour and 45 minutes long and travels out along the fjord to the Tasman Sea and back.
We recommend that you come prepared for almost any weather. Even in Summer, the weather can change quickly and get cold, wet, or windy! Come prepared with an extra warm layer and rain coat if you have one. We also recommend you bring sun lotion, insect repellent, and comfortable footwear. If you do not purchase the picnic lunch, you are welcome to bring your own food along with you or purchase some during our stops in Te Anau.
Please be prepared for a long day. Milford Sound is remote and only accessible by one road. This tour is between 12-13 hours and a great portion of that is spent on the road. What you can be said for certain is that this will be one of the most scenic and unforgettable journeys you will ever experience. With pristine lakes, towering mountains, and unbelievable valleys around each corner, this is a day to remember!
With our small group sizes, we have the unique opportunity to choose more remote locations and work around the crowds that can frequent the Milford Road during the busy months. While the exact locations can differ from day to day, you can certainly expect to stop at the more notable sites such as the Mirror Lakes and Eglington valley among others such as Monkey Creek, the Homer Tunnel and the Chasm. In each direction, you will also have the opportunity to stretch your legs and get something to eat and drink in the small township of Te Anau.
Our small vehicles are not equipped with on board toilet facilities. Instead our driver will make frequent stops and make passengers aware of where the next opportunity will arise to go to the bathroom.
The scenic cruise is often the highlight of our passengers day. Taking you out along Milford Sound to the Tasman Sea, the scenery will take your breath away! With great commentary from the local skipper, and the chance to glimpse some of the unique local wildlife, you'll quickly see why Milford Sound is renowned world over for it's beauty and charm.
We can provide you with an individually packed picnic lunch for an additional charge. This is provided on board the scenic cruise so that you can eat as you enjoy the awesome scenery! To purchase the picnic lunch, simply add it onto your purchase when booking.
We’re able to cater for most dietary requirements on all our tours – just let us know in advance and we can sort that for you! Please provide us with any relevant information when making your booking, and reconfirm your dietary requirements with us 48 hours prior to departure.
While our tours are all suitable for kids, there is a significant amount of driving time on our Milford Sound trip (+9 hours) which may not be suitable for very young children. We welcome kids on tour but believe as a parent you know what is best for your child.
We do not provide car seats for infants or young children but we do highly recommend bringing one for your child. If you do not have a car seat, please contact us 48 hours before your tour and we can arrange to hire one for you for an additional fee.
