JUCY Cruise Milford Sound – Classic Cruises

Come cruise magnificent Milford Sound with us aboard our modern catamaran, Maiden of Milford, and immerse yourself in some of the world’s most breath-taking scenery while being treated to our famous JUCY service.

Our scenic cruises travel the length of the fiord and out into the Tasman Sea, where we can show passengers why Captain Cook failed to discover Milford Sound after charting all the other fiords of Fiordland National Park.

During the cruise stops you'll see New Zealand fur seals basking on rocks and feel the spray of towering waterfalls dropping into the fiord. Look out for playful dolphins who come to surf the wave of the boat from time to time, and if you’re lucky, you can catch a glimpse of the rare and elusive Fiordland Crested Penguin.

If it rains, the scenery becomes even more spectacular with torrents of water pouring into the sound from hundreds of temporary waterfalls. Milford Sound cruises are never spoilt by rain — far from it! No matter what the weather, you can rest assured that every JUCY Cruise is guaranteed to be special, always memorable, and each one is a little different.

There are a wide variety of hot and cold lunch options available for purchase, as well as a selection of drinks, juices, pies and espresso coffee from our fully licensed ‘Off the Rocks’ bar.

For the ultimate in Milford Sound sightseeing tour why not combine your cruise on the fiord with an awe-inspiring aerial flight over the alps and valleys hidden from the road, or enjoy a more leisurely coach drive linking to our Fiordland boat cruises with plenty of photo stops along the way.
