Soak up the beauty of New Zealand's most spectacular natural attraction as you travel the length of Milford Sound aboard the JUCY Cruise.

Our modern catamaran is purpose-built to capture the best views inside and out, with over 3 spacious viewing decks which get you right up close to the action and providing the perfect position for those postcard-worthy photographs!

See spectacular natural beauty including towering cliff faces and luxuriant rainforests, then get right up close to the stunning cascading waterfalls - prepare to get wet if you stand outside!

During the cruise, make sure to look out for native wildlife including New Zealand Fur seals basking on rocks. Cheeky dolphins will sometimes come and play near the boat, and if you're lucky enough you may even see the rare Fiordland Crest Penguin.

    Amazing trip

    Good, warm, and friendly staff. They seem very enjoy and happy with their job and I think that makes the guest also enjoy the trip

    Great experience

    We took the morning cruise in off-season so there were maybe 20 other people in the boat. We got extremely lucky and had a clear day with blue skies during the trip, it was amazing! The Captain pointed out highlights along the cruise and steered the boat head-first into a glacial waterfall for a unique experience. The staff are friendly and helpful and the boat was clean. There was free tea available and other beverages and snacks available for purchase. All in all, awesome cruise, would recommend.

    Distance from carpark can take 30 mins by walk

    Although they say arrive early by atleast 20 mins, which I did, the car park was full and I was directed to park way ahead of the main carpark and was asked to walk all the way to the departure point which took around 30 mins and I missed the cruise and also was disappointed to see an empty car park. My advice, never trust these car park attendants with radios. They really dont care.
