Absolutely amazing!

It was raining steadily when we went but it was almost more beautiful due to the 100's of waterfalls surrounding you wherever you look! Crew are friendly and cruise is comfortable. Has a roof deck to see all around you also. Went during July 2020 and was so peaceful and quiet due to Covid-19. Best time to go in my opinion!

Amazing!

We loved cruising the Milford Sound on the Jucy tour. It was the perfect amount of time, a very comfortable ride and there was excellent commentary from our captain. There were a couple of small stops to look at the temporary waterfalls and get a closer look at the rocks and minerals that line the sound. Of course one of the highlights was getting up close and personal with the Stirling waterfall and we were even joined by a couple of dolphins, which made the whole experience very special. Highly recommend joining Jucy if you want to see the beautiful surrounds of Milford Sound - plus they have complimentary warm drinks on board!

Absolutely amazing!

We had initially booked the 11:30 cruise but due to weather conditions we were just 10 mins late, the lovely lady at the counter let us change the booking to 1:30. The cruise was just amazing! The water falls and the beautiful views. Also got really lucky to see the dolphins and the seals! We also were one of the people who decided to go under the water fall and get wet! That was a once in a lifetime experience for sure! Highly recommend ๐Ÿ˜Š

Magical Milford Sound

We enjoyed a fantastic cruise around the Milford Sound with juicy! The captain was informative and encouraged passengers to get into the whole experience and had some helpful tips on How to get the best pictures/ videos! We were so lucky with the weather and our family all really enjoyed every minute! It was a relaxed atmosphere with friendly staff. The only negative was that free tea and coffee was advertised and only free tea was offered and you had to pay for coffee but that was the only minor thing! I would totally recommend this cruise to others! Thanks Juicy!!
