In a very simple nut-shell all operators in Milford Sound travel the same route. Up the left-hand side, turn around at the Tasman Sea, and return down the right-hand side. It’s how you do it, the style of vessel, personnel, food, length of cruise and pricing that differentiates us all and helps Go Orange stand out from the crowd ….. and not just colour!
All Go Orange cruises are 2 hours in duration – making them the best value 2 hour cruise in Milford all day long. The Milford Haven is a slightly mature (late 80’s) retro-style boat, but our customers are delightfully more concerned with being outside soaking up Nature-At-Its-Best than sitting inside worrying about our interior decor. She’s unique in that she’s a large vessel, but has a small-boat attitude. The Milford Haven doesn’t take any shortcuts, but takes a relaxed cruise up the side of the fiords, poking her bow in under waterfalls. Denis, our skipper swears the spray from the Stirling Falls, Milford’s second highest permanent waterfall, will knock 10 years off your age!
Not just there for decoration, our crew are there to ensure you make the most of your experience in Milford Sound. They’ll bust out the food and coffees and then get outside to stand with you under the spray of a waterfall, point out any wildlife, answer an questions and help you take an amazing group photo if the selfie’s just aren’t working. Pop up and say hi to our skipper in the wheelhouse – he’s not hidden away behind a glass partition, he loves a good old chat with customers.
With awesome free food offers and a relaxed cruising pace – You’ll get to cruise longer for less!
* As always with Nature everything is weather dependent. How far out to the Tasman Sea we will travel on the day will be weather dependent. We aim to make the cruise as comfortable and safe as possible.
