Real NZ Milford Sound Overnight Cruises

Fiordland Activities Scenic Cruises Water Activities Milford Sound Activities
Spend the night aboard the iconic Milford Mariner and wake up to dawn in one of the most beautiful places on earth.  The cruise style is relaxed, allowing plenty of time to view the fiord’s spectacular waterfalls, rainforest, mountains and wildlife.

As evening falls, you’ll enjoy a delicious carvery buffet in the dining saloon, freshly prepared freshly by an on-site chef.  Then it’s time to relax, indulge in some star-gazing or, simply retire to your private cabin. The next day you’ll be able to dig into a hearty breakfast before heading back out to the Tasman Sea (weather permitting) and exploring more of the fiord.

The ultimate Milford Sound experience includes:
  • Duration: 1 night
  • Accommodation in private cabins with ensuite bathrooms or quad share bunk-style compartments
  • 3-course buffet dinner and cooked breakfast 
  • Choose to explore the shoreline by kayak or small boat
  • Specialist nature guide on board
  • Wildlife sighting opportunities – seals, penguins and dolphins
  • Spacious viewing decks and observation lounge
  • Dining saloon and licensed bar


The trip leaves from the Milford Sound Terminal at 4.30pm and returns by 9.15am the following day.  You are required to check-in at the RealNZ counter 30min prior to departure.

The journey to Milford Sound is around 5-6 hours (one-way) from Queenstown and around 3 hours from Te Anau by road.  Free parking is available for Overnight Cruise passengers in the RealNZ Bus Parking.
