Pure Milford takes you deep into the untouched wilderness of Fiordland National Park to find your wild place.  Milford Sound is home to stunning wildlife, expansive mountain ranges and thousand year old waterfalls.

The crew at Pure Milford are proud to welcome you aboard the Gem of the Sound to explore their beautiful backyard, Milford Sound.  Your wild place.

At Milford Sound every day is guaranteed to be special, always memorable, and each one a little different.

The Gem of the Sound is Milford’s only glass roof vessel, with spacious indoor and outdoor viewing decks guaranteeing you the best sightseeing opportunities in the fiord.  HD cameras project live outdoor footage onto TV screens throughout the boat so you can relax – you won’t miss a thing!

Each two hour exploration travels the full length of the fiord to the Tasman Sea and back, with the crew pointing out the highlights of their place such as towering cliffs, cascading waterfalls, local flora and fauna and ever changing natural wonders.

The Pure Milford crew are what set us apart from the rest and ensure each day is one to remember.  They share their stories and local insights, educate on the wonderous wildlife, geology and history with a few dad jokes along the way.  The highlight of the cruise is the famous finale as the boat noses under Stirling Falls for that bucket list moment, a shower under fresh glacial melt!  The crew will sing and dance with you as you’re plunged under previously untouched water - only if you’re brave enough of course.

Tea and coffee is complimentary throughout the cruise, with a licensed Café Bar offering hot and cold refreshments throughout the cruise.
Choose to drive yourself through the Fiordland National Park, take a coach from Queenstown or Te Anau, or even fly in a fixed wing plane.
