    Itinerary
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Fiordland National Park, Fiordland National Park, Southland Region, South Island

    Fiordland National Park is in the southwest of New Zealand’s South Island. It’s known for the glacier-carved fiords of Doubtful and Milford sounds. A beech forest trail on the sandy Milford shore offers views of towering Mitre Peak. Nearby, the craggy Earl Mountains are reflected in the glassy surface of Mirror Lakes. On the Cleddau River, the Chasm Walk passes over bridges with views of powerful waterfalls.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Milford Sound, Milford Sound, Southland Region, South Island

    Milford Sound is a fiord in the southwest of New Zealand’s South Island. It’s known for towering Mitre Peak, plus rainforests and waterfalls like Stirling and Bowen falls, which plummet down its sheer sides. The fiord is home to fur seal colonies, penguins and dolphins. Milford Discovery Centre and Underwater Observatory offers views of rare black coral and other marine life. Boat tours are a popular way to explore.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Pass By: Mitre Peak, Fiordland National Park New Zealand

    Mitre Peak (Māori Rahotu) is a mountain in the South Island of New Zealand, located on the shore of Milford Sound. It is one of the most photographed peaks in the country.

    Pass By: Bowen Falls, Fiordland National Park, Milford Sound 9679 New Zealand

    The permanent Lady Bowen Falls is Milford’s highest waterfall at 162m. Not only breathtakingly beautiful, without it Milford Sound couldn’t operate; with it being our sole source of power and water. Occasionally, in heavy rain or dry spells she has a few overflow and underflow problems, leaving us without electricity for periods but her beauty makes up for her occasional flow issues. She quadruples in volume during Milford’s epic storms – one of the best ways to truly enjoy the falls is to stand on the foreshore to feel the spray.

    Pass By: Stirling Falls, Milford Sound New Zealand

    Milford’s second-highest waterfall is the Stirling Falls, a staggering 151m in height – three times the height of Niagara Falls, but the 1,300m mountain behind displaces this incredible height. This is the famous waterfall that Hugh Jackman ‘jumped off’ in the movie Wolverine. The sheer drop of the Stirling Falls allows boats and brave kayakers to get right underneath – it’s an incredible feeling to have the power of 151m worth of glacial water falling on top of you. Discovered by Captain Stirling, Stirling who discovered the waterfall chose to name the waterfall after himself; less of a gentlemanly move than Captain Bowen who named the Lady Bowen Falls after his wife.

    Pass By: Sinbad Gully, Southland 9679, New Zealand

    Nestled behind the world famous Mitre Peak, the Sinbad Gully is characterised by extremely steep glacially carved walls punctuated by near vertical granite cliffs. These walls slowed pest invasion into the gully and as a result a number of unique native species remain in the Sinbad.

    Southern Discoveries is passionate about preserving Milford Sound’s beauty for future generations which is why it’s a key partner in a major conservation project – the Sinbad Sanctuary Project.

    The aim is to see the valley of New Zealand’s most photographed mountain (Sinbad Gully is at the base of Mitre Peak) become a sanctuary for native species.

    Stop At: Southern Discoveries - Milford Sound Visitor Centre, Freshwater Basin, Milford Sound Highway 94, Milford Sound 9679, New Zealand

    Here you will check in for your Milford Sound Cruise.

    Duration: 10 minutes

      This was a 9am cruise so we paid for breakfast as well. The cruise boat was spacious and clean and the breakfast was plentiful and delicious. There was enough commentary for it to be informative but not overwhelming. Great value

      We did the morning cruise and do not regret it. Beautiful scenery. Got to see mountains, waterfalls, and penguins. The cruise lasted 1 hr 45 min and included complimentary tea and coffee. The boat was very spacious too; it had three levels. Also, the drive to Milford Sound from Te Anau was stunning.

      Milford Sound is absolutely beautiful, we went on a wet, drizzly day which meant the mountain tops were covered by cloud but the waterfalls were amazing and the scenery still spectacular. The boat was skillfully guided right under a waterfall which was thrilling for those of us who ventured to the bow. We had another bonus, maybe because of the rain, the sandflies didn't bother us at all.

      Worth the time it took to get there. We had a day that was bright and sunny and so the experience was less dramatic than usual, but wonderful nonetheless.

      Nature at its best. Got to the pickup point a little earlier to enjoy the surrounding areas of the jetty, and then the cruise itself. What a journey it was! Gorgeous waterfalls, the beautiful ocean and we were lucky enough to encounter wild dolphins making their way out to the bay. Also saw seals basking in the sun. An extremely memorable trip.

      Traveling with Southern Discoveries was great. There was an unexpected hot buffet breakfast which we were not expecting. The cruise was beautiful, some great scenery and our guide was funny and gave great commentary. There was plenty of room on the boat to find your own space to take some great photos along the way. I would highly recommend the early cruise as most of the tourist haven't arrived at Milford Sound yet, so you almost get a private tour :-

      The torrential rains brought out the most amazing waterfall display imaginable. Water falls were everywhere! It looked like rivers of milk streaming down every crack and crevice. Mother Nature was at her finest!

      Pretty awesome trip, captain and crew were very friendly and helpful, the ship was large enough to reduce the rocking of the swells and waves, while not being too cavernous. Perfect weather Not that they could control it and the hot tea/coffee was appreciated.

      The weather had been awful for the previous 14 hours, torrential rain and wind. But just before our trip it cleared and we were able to see Milford Sound in all its glory. The company provided a nice buffet lunch which we sat down at ate first at a table reserved for us the rest of the trip we were up on deck seeing all the sights. Very good commentary which everyone was able to hear too!

      Great helpful staff. They slotted me in for 2.00pm trip after I missed my 9.00am early starter.
      Picturesque views. Good value. Cannot beat the package.
      Found this tour far better priced, adventurous, helpful staff and than the highly publicized, expensive, Doubtful sounds overnight cruise run by The Fiordland Navigator.

      Second time going with this company so it must be good! Nice comfortable boat and captain gives a good overview of the Sound and even dips into waterfalls to give passengers a fun experience. If you're lucky with the weather it impacts the enjoyment of this tour massively!
