Beautiful Milford Sound and Mitre Peak.


See Milford Sound the way it is supposed to be seen, up close and personal!

Mitre Peak Cruises leisurely 2 hour cruises of Milford Sound take you all the way out to the Tasman Sea and back, with frequent stops that allow you to get up close and personal with the rugged splendour of Milford Sound.

View towering cliffs, thundering waterfalls and lush rainforest from the many viewing areas on our purpose built vessels. Milford Sound is home to an amazing variety of wildlife and you may also see seals, dolphins, whales and occasionally penguins.

Mitre Peak Cruises also operates a daily luxury coach excursion to Milford Sound from Queenstown and Te Anau.

Chose Mitre Peak Cruises because they have a smaller boat and certainly was not dissapointed. Less people meant it was easier to get around and get that perfect picture. Based on what the other larger boats were doing we went further out of the Sound and got much closer to waterfalls and wildlife. Commentary from the Captain was very entertaining and informative. If you are looking for a cruise company, pick these guys.

We did the tour at 4:30pm, less people, small boat, around 30 people, space for 75, funny skipper (entertaining), got very close to the seals as the boat is so small.

It was a small boat with just 25 people (much less than other boats). Although the weather was not perfect, the Milford Sound was beautiful.

Best boat tour I have done so far. Nice scenery, seals, dolphins, a penguin and the perfect boat size and very friendly crew.
