Experience Nature’s Magic With Fiordland Discovery


Experience Nature’s Magic With Fiordland Discovery
Fiordland is one of the most dramatic and beautiful parts of New Zealand. Carved by glaciers over 100,000 years ago, the landscape is a breathtaking one. Waterfalls cascade, surrounded by native bush untouched by man. Mountains stand tall, adding to the dramatic landscape. The shimmering water looks just as it did thousands of years ago.

If you’re looking for scenery that will make your draw drop, you should probably visit Fiordland.

Revered as one of the southern hemisphere’s most stunning wilderness areas, Fiordland is a must-do for every New Zealander and tourist alike. To add to the excitement, it is now home to Fiordland Discovery’s new custom-built luxury five-star catamaran, the Fiordland Jewel.

Fiordland Discovery is a small, New Zealand family-owned and operated tourism business, offering luxury boutique cruise experiences in Milford Sound and Fiordland. They offer many different options to suit a range of budgets, making sure that everyone has a unique experience.

From exploring Milford Sound overnight, to a seven-day scenic cruise of Preservation Inlet and the surrounding Southern Fiords, there’s something for everyone. Or if you’d like a little more privacy, charter the boat for multi-day fishing, hunting and diving trips, while taking in New Zealand’s largest national park in complete luxury.

The Fiordland Jewel is a rather majestic piece of engineering. It can sleep 20 passengers a night in nine climate-controlled cabins, each with their own king-sized bed and ensuite bathroom. It’s the perfect solution for a restful break from reality or even the chance to take a holiday from your holiday.

Among the number of options Fiordland Discovery offer, the Milford Sound overnight cruise and the ‘heli-lunch-cruise-heli’ options are some of the most popular. A Milford Sound overnight cruise is a night spent in luxury, aboard the Fiordland Jewel. The experience includes a 3-course dinner, full cooked & continental breakfast, guided ROV, kayaking, & small boat explorations, and an overnight cruise including two cruises of the Fiord. The ‘heli-lunch-cruise-heli’ is a very unique option, designed for busy go-getters with a need for a few moments of serenity. Bookended by a helicopter flight that descends through carved glacial valleys to and from Milford, you will be guided by an expert crew who will share with you the incredible natural wilderness and local wildlife, which can include seals, dolphins, penguins and the rare black coral. You will experience a lobster lunch & stunning scenery before being whisked away back to Queenstown to enjoy your evening.
