You may think that cruises aren’t for you, but wait until you read about this one. If you’re visiting the beautiful country of New Zealand, you must visit the stunning Milford Sound. This unbelievable fiord offers some of the best natural sights in New Zealand, and the best part is, there are multiple ways to cruise through the azure waters. Read on for three of the most popular cruises in this area.

Catamaran Cruise

For around 80 US dollars, you can experience the fiord from this glass-floored catamaran, to really make the most of your surroundings. The boat is smaller than others, meaning you and your group will have more privacy, and its smaller size means it can maneuver into smaller spaces and get up close and personal with the awesome cliffs which rise above the water.

Cruise And Kayak

This option allows you time on a boat, and time paddling your own, too! There’s something really special about being out on the water, pushing yourself through it. It also means that if you’re very lucky and a pod of dolphins are passing through, you’ll have the best seats in the house to watch the marine mammals from.

Cruise and Helicopter

Why not combine water and air by splitting your time in the Milford Sound between a luxury cruise boat and a helicopter? From the helicopter, you can gaze down at the waters, forest-covered mountains and waterfalls, whilst from the boat you can get up close and personal with these sights and drift slowly by, taking it all in.

Whether you’ve come to experience Middle Earth for yourself, are drawn to the wild beauty of Milford Sound, or really want to see the migrating dolphins and whales, cruising through the fiord is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and not to be missed.
