The most relaxing way to experience Milford Sound.

  • Family friendly & dolphins love to play with our catamarans.
  • Join the Captain in the open bridge.

Southern Discoveries Scenic Cruises are the most modern and comfortable cruising experience in Milford Sound. They allow you to move freely around the boat and enjoy large viewing decks and stability on the water that only a twin-hull vessel can provide.

Our experienced crew delivers a full, informative commentary on the natural history and wildlife of the area, and conveniently timed year-round departures mean you never have to miss out.

The Scenic Cruise is family and wheelchair friendly, with a whole top deck for viewing and panoramic photo opportunities, and large covered seating areas and viewing windows on other levels.

Dolphins love playing with our ‘cats’ and you get right out to the head of the fiord and the Tasman Sea, stopping at waterfalls and points of interest on the way.

Translation sheets are provided in Japanese, German, French, Spanish, Korean and Mandarin.
