Come within touching distance of the fiord walls, catch pure glacial water from Fairy Falls to quench your thirst and interact closely with your nature guide and skipper as they show you the fascinating features of Milford.

Take your raincoat (or we have some spares) and feel the full force of Stirling Falls cascading over 150m onto the front deck - an experience not to be missed.

Add a 1 hour kayaking tour or a trip to the Milford Discovery Centre (the only floating structure in Milford) onto your cruise. You will experience the unique underwater world of Milford plus learn all about the history, early Maori visitors, the Homer Tunnel and much much more.
