Milford Sound is part of the World Heritage Fiordland National Park and has been described as the Eighth Natural Wonder of the World. Mitre Peak, which towers over the Sound is an icon of New Zealand scenery and theres no better way to experience the majesty of this unspoilt location than on a Milford Sound Southern Discovery Cruise.
Experience a world of cascading waterfalls, sheer rock faces, dense rainforest and a place to spot visiting wildlife including penguins, seals and dolphins. Enjoy striking views of iconic Mitre Peak from the head of the Sound – it rises 1692 metres from the south shore and is so-called due its resemblance to a bishop’s mitre (tall headdress).
Your sightseeing tour to Milford Sound is made even more enjoyable with glass-roofed coaches providing spectacular views as you journey along the Milford Road and through the Homer Tunnel, before arriving for your cruise of Milford Sound with Southern Discoveries.
Wet or fine the magic of Milford Sound will enthral you. Annually, Milford Sound receives between 5 to 9 metres of rain and you will see waterfalls thunder down the sheer cliffs of the Fiord.
Your Milford Sound Skipper will provide a full and enjoyable commentary on the natural history of the Fiord. Our friendly crew are there to answer any questions and help make your Milford Sound experience just that, your experience.
