Real Journeys Milford Sound Nature Cruises

Milford Sound is simply stunning – it is a natural wonder of world fame.

Whatever the fiord’s mood, teeming with rain or with the sun glistening, it will inspire you!

Cruise the length of the fiord on a Milford Sound Nature cruise, learn about the history of the region and benefit from the knowledge of your specialist nature guide. Experience the spray of a waterfall as you cruise close to sheer rock faces or watch out for dolphins, seals and in season, the rare Fiordland crested penguins.

Nowhere in Fiordland do the mountains stand as tall, straight out of the sea.
