Why do we love this

Seeing Milford Sound is a must do in New Zealand, and we love how easy the Jucy team makes it! Different start times mean you can pick the perfect trip and we also think the included commentary is pretty cool... you're not just seeing this stunning New Zealand gem, but you're learning a little about it too.

Come cruise magnificent Milford Sound! Explore one of the highlights of the Fiordland National Park aboard a modern catamaran, the 'Maiden of Milford'. Immerse yourself in some of the world’s most breathtaking scenery while you're treated to the famous JUCY service... hop aboard and begin your adventure!

Three viewing decks (inside and out) ensure you have unlimited viewing of towering waterfalls, luxuriant rainforests, fur seals and other local wildlife such as dolphins and penguins (depending on season).

The cruise travels the length of Milford Sound and out into the Tasman Sea, where you'll learn why Captain Cook failed to discover Milford Sound after charting all the other fiords of Fiordland National Park. Jucy's talented skippers will give you commentary throughout the cruise, teaching you all about this spectacular area. 

If you're hungry throughout your journey, a selection of fresh & tasty wraps can be purchased from the Pita Pit outlet on-board. The ‘Off The Rocks’ bar also serves up delicious espresso coffee, drinks and assorted snacks to enjoy while you soak in the stunning scenery. 

Check-in: JUCY Desk, Milford Sound Boat Terminal, Milford Sound, 20 minutes prior to departure.
