Book this Milford Sound day tour from Queenstown to enjoy return transfers and a two-hour nature cruise to see cascading waterfalls, abundant marine life and rainforest clad cliffs collide.

The iconic Milford Sound is likely among the first images that pops into your head when you think of New Zealand and this Milford Sound day tour will whisk you away from Queenstown to experience the incredible spectacle all in one day. Once you arrive at the fjord, you’ll join a one-hour 45-minute nature cruise getting you so close to the waterfalls you may even get a little bit wet. Keep an eye out for the New Zealand Fur Seals and Dolphins that are often spotted throughout the nature cruise. Return transfers back to Queenstown will deliver you back to your hotel just in time for dinner.
