The perfect addition to your Milford Sound cruise... Interactive and educational, learn about the history, geology and wildlife of Milford Sound before descending 10 metres underwater to explore the world of exotic sea creatures and rare black coral. The Milford Discovery Centre & Underwater Observatory is the only structure of its kind in the Piopiotahi Marine Reserve and is a rich, captivating experience, both above and below the surface of the fiord. Descend 64 steps underwater into a large, fully air-conditioned viewing area where large windows with excellent optical clarity open your eyes to this deep underwater haven. Unlike an aquarium, the fish are free to come and go; it's the people who are contained.
