We offer the choice of four cruise departures during the summer and two in the winter during which we provide a relaxed and informative commentary as we travel the length of Milford Sound, out into the Tasman Sea and back.
It is very rare for us to cancel due to weather and when it rains (as it often does in Milford) torrents of water will pour into the sound from thousands of temporary waterfalls, the ideal time to be in Milford!
