Milford Sound Early Departure Coach & Cruise Tour - Pure Milford


Pure Milford Coach Cruise Coach

The early bird catches the worm and so can you! Catch the early departure glass roof coach tour and be the first coach tour from Queenstown to arrive in Milford Sound! You'll be first back to Queenstown too; giving you a full night of fun on the town!

Sit back, draw the curtains and have a snooze as you travel firstly to Te Anau. Approximately 2 hours after departure, wake up and enjoy a refreshment break before making the rest of the journey through the stunning Fiordland National Park to Milford Sound.

You will be treated to uncrowded scenic photo stops and nature walks to experience the uniqueness and beauty of this stunning area as we make our way to Milford Sound.

The Sunriser links up with the 12pm 1 hour 45 minute cruise at Milford Sound, and you will be welcomed aboard the Maiden of Milford by the fantastic and friendly crew. 

Relax on our uncrowded, modern catamaran while we spoil you with unlimited, close up viewing of waterfalls, wildlife and rainforest from our three viewing decks. Spot seals basking on rocks, look out for playful dolphins who occasionally come to surf the wake and if you're really lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of the elusive Fiordland penguin!

If your included lunch is not enough, you can purchase snacks and drinks from the on board eatery.

After the cruise you will board the coach for your return to Queenstown. Time is allowed for a quick refreshment in Te Anau on the return, with the aim to be back in Queensotwn by 6pm; just in time for Happy Hour!
