Frequently Asked Questions
Milford Sound is approximately a 5 hour drive from Queenstown and 2 hour 30 minute drive from Te Anau.
Milford Sound is one of the wettest places in New Zealand with over 180 rain days a year. A jacket and warm clothing are recommended, as the weather can be unpredictable all year round. You’ll definitely need a rain jacket (and a change of clothes!) if you decide to take advantage of Milford’s free shower service underneath Stirling Falls waterfall.
Milford Sound is stunning in any weather! The more it rains, the more waterfalls you will see. The crew all agree that Milford is more spectacular in the rain as the surrounding mountains come alive with countless waterfalls that you don’t see on a sunny day.
The vessel is wheel chair accessible from the wharf into the main passenger cabin and has accessible toilet facilities on this deck. The remainder of the boat is not accessible by wheelchair.
