Itinerary

For the ultimate Milford experience, travel from Queenstown via glass-roofed coach then spend the night aboard the Mariner. After cruising the sound, you'll anchor in a sheltered cove and wake up to a dawn of a new day in one of the most beautiful places on earth.

An overnight cruise is the ultimate way to experience Milford Sound. When all the day visitors have left, the fiord transforms into a peaceful scene of dramatic landscape. It is the perfect opportunity to soak up the atmosphere and get a sense of the serenity that the fiord offers.

Activities include kayaking and exploring the shoreline on a tender craft. The overnight cruise includes an evening meal. Beverages are available for purchase at the licensed on board bar. The next morning following breakfast, there is further cruising before returning to the Milford Wharf. Suitable for most ages except infants. Not suitable for wheelchair passengers due to steep stairs.
