What you can expect

Join our seamless day trip to Milford Sound on board premium coaches connecting with a spacious catamaran that's been purpose built for viewing.

Board the coach in Queenstown and travel alongside Lake Wakatipu and through farming countryside to Te Anau where you will enjoy a short rest stop. From here the overland journey to Milford Sound is a showcase of sheer mountains and towering cliffs, rugged valleys and native rainforest surrounded by teeming waterfalls and glacial lakes. The coach offers modern and comfortable reclining seats with additional legroom. Experienced coach drivers tailor each journey to ensure the best photo stops are included for short walks and photo opportunities along the way.

On arrival to Milford Sound, board our vessel for an extended and leisurely cruise with up tp two hour duration. Cruise the length of the fiord in comfort on a modern, spacious vessel with comfortable indoor seating and large, tall windows for panoramic viewing of spectacular Milford Sound. With a relaxed itinerary, enjoy a large and wide open outdoor, upper level for excellent wildlife viewing including seals, dolphins and penguins when in season. A specialist nature guide shares their local knowledge with lively and informative commentary and the wheelhouse is open to join and speak with the skipper. Following the cruise, return to Queenstown by coach.

Enjoy a freshly made picnic lunch as apart of your journey.

As the original and most established operator in Milford Sound, this magical fiord is our home – And we’d love to share our backyard with you. There’s so much more to Milford Sound. Discover it all with us.

This was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Benjamin was just wonderful. He was so knowledgeable and was just amazing. I would highly recommend this coach service, and will do this again in the future. The whole experience from pick up to drop off was just amazing.

Coach trip to the boat was very good, driver knowledgeable and full of interesting stories. Trip on boat very impersonal. Trip up Milford Sound interesting with great dialogue from captain of the boat. Disliked the queueing up and mass entrance onto the boat with a “grab a tray walk along the buffet and choose food then find a seat”.

It’s a long way to and from Milford Sound so it was a sensible choice to take a coach there and back and include the cruise and a buffet lunch. A great day out without 7 hours of driving along often very windy roads.
