Enjoy the ultimate nature and wildlife experience at Milford Sound on this cruise, including return coach transfers from Te Anau!
Departing from Te Anau in the morning, you'll join a small coach and travel out to beautiful Milford Sound. You'll spend 3 hours on the cruise, so relax and take time to luxuriate in the beauty of Milford Sound. The tour includes access to the Milford Sound Discover Centre and Underwater Observatory, where you can descend 10 metres underwater into a large, fully air conditioned viewing area unlike anything else in the world. With large windows and excellent optical clarity, you can experience the magic of this special world, previously the exclusive realm of divers.
While on the cruise you'll also get to stand under the Stirling Falls – the most magnificent waterfall in Milford Sound. Taste pure glacial water straight from the waterfalls! Or head inside the boat and join the skipper in the open wheelhouse. This cruise also includes a picnic lunch, featuring a sandwich, cheese and crackers, seasonal fresh fruit, crisps, a cookie, small chocolate bar and a bottle of water. At the end of the 3 hour cruise, you'll rejoin your coach driver and be returned back to Te Anau.
You can also choose to upgrade to the Kayaking package for even more adventure! You'll join a 1 hour guided kayak experience around sheltered Harrison Cove. Kayak through crystal clear waters in one of the most majestic places in the world. This activity includes all equipment, a life jacket, safety briefing and a specialist kayak and nature guide.
