Why plain sail, when you can JUCY Cruise the Milford Sound! Join us aboard the Maiden of Milford.

Milford Sound is one of the world’s most stunning locations, with its towering cliffs and peaks – including the much photographed, iconic Mitre Peak; rising more than a kilometre straight out of the sea.

Waterfalls cascade into the fiord and a luxuriant rainforest clings to sheer rock faces in this exceptional place. Join us aboard the Maiden of Milford, our uncrowded 200 seat catamaran spread across three spacious levels, where you will experience unlimited close-up viewing of waterfalls, wildlife and rainforest.

We provide four cruise departures per day during summer and three in the winter. Coach tours including our 5-star luxury option from Queenstown and smaller intimate coaches from Te Anau are available, as well as flight transfers from Queenstown.

Extensive food options are available on board to suit all tastebuds, including our very own Pita Pit franchise, Indian cuisine and exclusive–to–JUCY, Pedros gourmet NZ lamb. We offer free tea and hot water and espresso coffee is available to purchase. Our JUCY crew are trained to add that extra friendly service making your customers journey an extra special experience.

Prompt collection from our camp site. Extremely knowledgeable and entertaining coach driver. The cruise itself was fantastic. 3 dolphins provided some early excitement as they were playing at the marina entrance. We experienced some spectacular scenery as the waterfalls were cascading down the rock faces in full flow due to some previous rainfall which petered out as the cruise went on. On the return coach journey a pair of kea were posing for photographs as the traffic queued for the traffic lights to change at the road tunnel entrance. This is a must-do excursion for anyone visiting the locality and value for money.

The Jucy cruise gets 10 points! We took the earliest cruise and if you drive a Jucy vehicle driver gets half price off. Boat was not crowded at all (maybe because it was the early cruise). Staff was friendly and the captain's commentary as much entertaining as it as informative. We made several stops not only to view the panorama but also we got to see seals and penguins very close up! Before we returned to the harbour we took a shower in the greatest waterfall there which was very cold but worth it. As a special offer we got a breakfast cake and orange juice free, complimentary tea is always included. Can only recommend this cruise!

The landscape was beautiful. The tour by Jucy was quite fun because of the captain. The way to Milford Sound is long for what we got to see, due to the bad weather conditions.
