Overview

For the most incredible experience in Milford Sound, enjoy the evening on the Mariner and open your eyes in the morning to the most gorgeous scenery in the world on a Milford Mariner Coach, Overnight Cruise and Fly Back to Queenstown Tour and see Mitre Peak and  Fiordland National Park in comfort.

The drive to Milford Sound is just as magnificent as the destination itself. The best way to enjoy the Milford Road, one of the world’s finest alpine roads without having to worry about the often tricky driving conditions, is on one of our specially designed glass-roofed coaches. Our professional coach drivers know all the best places to stop and take in the superb views of the Milford Road. Along the way, your driver will provide you with informative commentary about the region, its history and natural surroundings.

Your journey begins in the late afternoon at the Milford Sound wharf. From here, you will cruise the entire length of Milford Sound in the company of an expert nature guide. Hey will provide you with a detailed account of the local history and geology as well as answer any questions you may have.

This cruise is wonderfully relaxed which allows travellers more than enough time to enjoy the views around the fiords. Sights include rushing waterfalls, a dense rainforest, impressive mountains and beautiful wildlife. Keep your eyes open and you could catch a glimpse of the fur seals, dolphins and rare penguins that call these waters home.

A sheltered cove provides the perfect spot for the Milford Mariner to drop anchor. From here, you can choose between several activities. If you like, you can join your guide for an exploration trip in kayaks and the tender boat. Alternatively, you can relax on deck and enjoy the fresh air along with the beautiful sights and sounds that surround you. If you are feeling particularly daring, you could venture into the water for a swim!

As the sun begins to set, you will be treated to a delectable carvery buffet freshly prepared by our skilled onboard chef. Enjoy your meal in the dining saloon before relaxing and mingling with your fellow travellers. You might even like to make your way up to the upper deck for an amazing view of the stars before calling it a night.

The next morning, you will be greeted by a fulfilling breakfast before making your way out to the Tasman Sea (weather permitting) and discovering even more beautiful secrets that this fiord holds.

On returning to Milford Wharf, board one of our small planes and be amazed as you experience one of the world’s most stunning alpine flights. Flying between Queenstown and Milford Sound allows you to enjoy awe-inspiring views of the world famous Milford Sound from the air, snow-capped Southern Alps and lakes.
