What to Expect

Milford Sound is a popular attraction for travellers from around New Zealand and all over the world. The beautiful fiord offers all sorts of breathtaking scenery and natural wildlife. On this Milford Sound Cruise and Coach Tour, you will get to see all of that plus more. 


Departing in the morning, step inside a custom built coach, with extra-large windows, a glass roof, and angled seating for optimal viewing. The journey to Milford Sound is as spectacular as the destination, so sit back, relax and take in the views from Queenstown.


Go on to explore Milford Sound on the mighty Milford Mariner or Milford Haven. Featuring great viewing decks, comfy interiors and fresh craft beer on tap, guests will also be able to enjoy insightful commentary by the friendly guides.


Known for being an amazing nature and wildlife viewing opportunity, the spectacular Milford Sound includes everything from thundering waterfalls to sky-high mountains and lush rainforests.



From experiencing the spray of a waterfall as you cruise close to sheer rock faces, to treating yourself to a delicious refreshment from the cruising bar or restaurant, this day trip offers more than you could possibly imagine.



Once back at the cruise terminal, your driver will welcome you back onto your coach. If ending your journey in Queenstown, your drive back will take about 5 hours.
