Join Mitre Peak Cruises for a small, private tour that will allow you to see the beautiful Milford Sound in ways you never believed possible. Mitre Peak Sails offers daily leisurely cruises into the Tasman Sea, passing by the St Anne’s Point Lighthouse. Mitre Peak cruise boats provide private, uncrowded, and personalised cruising provide up-close views of nature’s splendour and wildlife.
Join the cruise in Milford Sound or take our daily small luxury coach service from Queenstown or Te Anau, which includes picture stops and short bush hikes. Inquire about our fly-back service between Milford Sound and Queenstown.
As your cruise begins from Milford Sound Wharf and heads out past the magnificent Mitre Peak, you can kick back and enjoy the scenery. The 16-mile-long fiord, which includes the majestic Lady Bowen Falls, Lion Mountain, Copper Point, Seal Rock, and Stirling Falls, will be explored by our knowledgeable skipper, who will point out sites of interest along the route, including St Annes Point Lighthouse. To the best of our knowledge, no one else in Milford Sound goes further or gets you closer than us.
Whatever your preference, you’ll be awestruck by the awe-inspiring natural beauty of the area, whether you’re inside or out.
Because we only take a small number of passengers on each trip, you’ll get a more personal perspective of Milford Sound and have plenty of room to take photos from the open decks.
Keep a watch out for seals relaxing in the sun, pods of dolphins, or the rare Fiordland Crested Penguins that can be spotted seasonally in the area.
