Highlights:

  • Mitre Peak Cruises offers regular two-hour trips traversing the deep waters of Milford Sound.
  • The only cruise option that always goes past St Anne’s lighthouse, and out into the Tasman Sea, a Mitre Peak Cruise gives our passengers a chance to enter Milford Sound from the outside, approaching it just as the first sealers did at the end of the 18th century.
  • Our informative guides point out scenic highlights along the way, such as the Bowen Falls (dropping 160 metres seaward), Sinbad Gully (a classic example of a hanging valley), snow-capped Mount Pembroke, and the awe-inspiring Mitre Peak itself, towering 1692 metres from the ocean floor.
  • Having smaller launches (approximately 20 metres) allows Mitre Peak Cruises to navigate closer to the shoreline, getting our passengers up close to the incredible surroundings.
  • Purpose-built for Milford waters, the boats make great viewing platforms should we encounter the local fur seal colonies – once nearly hunted to extinction – the rare Fiordland crested penguins or pods of dusky dolphins.
  • With more rainfall than any other part of New Zealand, Fiordland National Park and Milford Sound provide spectacular scenery whatever the weather.
  • Milford Sound is located at the northern most end of Fiordland National Park on the South Island of New Zealand.

  • Two boats (approx 20 metres) both purpose-built for Milford waters.
  • Strictly limited passenger numbers.
  • Cruise lasts two hours.
  • Free tea, coffee and hot chocolate on board.
