Directions to Go Orange Milford Sound Cruise

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 the departures has a free food offer available. On the 9.00am cruise grab yourself a BLT & OJ, on the 12:30pm cruise, you'll receive some good old Kiwi fish & chips and 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.

Milford Sound is one of New Zealand's most popular attractions for a reason. Anyone who has seen first-hand the impressive beauty of the steep cliffs, the spontaneous waterfalls and the calm waters knows that Milford Sound is a must-do for anyone visiting New Zealand.

Go Orange Milford Sound Cruise depart daily from 9.00am, 12.30pm and 3.00pm in peak summer. In winter sailings depart at 10.30am and 12.30pm. The counter opens two hours prior to departure.
