Go Orange Milford Sound Cruise - Queenstown
Daily departures have a free food offer available.
Go Orange's Milford Sound Cruise offers great value cruises on spacious boats, so you don't have to jostle with the crowd for a clear view.
On your two-hour cruise, you will see incredible mountains shooting straight up from the water, eye-catching waterfalls cascading down cliffs, and ancient rainforests. It offers you plenty of opportunities to get up close to the local wildlife, including dolphins, whales, penguins and seals.
Throughout the cruise, knowledgeable and friendly staff will keep you entertained with informative commentary about the area's sights. You will also be pointed towards some of the best photo opportunities in Milford, and given the chance to snap some photos that you'll look back on for years.
The spacious vessel always runs at half capacity- ensuring an uncrowded, personal experience. The open-deck policy invites guests to explore the ship, and even pay a visit to the skipper.
Each of our departures has a free food offer available. On our 9.00am cruise grab yourself a BLT & OJ to snack on, then on our 12:30pm cruise you'll receive some good old kiwi fish & chips or on the 3pm cruise passengers get a yummy slice of carrot cake.
Tea and espresso coffee are available on board for purchase as well as an array of snacks and non-alcoholic beverages. You can also bring your own. There is covered and uncovered seating, so no matter what the weather (it's pretty unpredictable in Fiordland), you'll be guaranteed a pleasant trip.
