A large number of operators provide cruises from the Milford Sound carpark out toward the ocean, offering a superb experience of the dramatic scenery. Boats vary slightly in comfort level and considerably in size, with smaller boats generally able to get closer to waterfalls (though don’t stress, it doesn’t really make much difference!).
