If you are interested in a full featured tour that is easy on the wallet, an early start and early finish, then this Milford Sound trip is the tour for you!

JUCY Sunriser departs Queenstown at 6:00am, includes stops in Te Anau and along the Milford road for those stunning photos and incredible sightseeing, a cruise the length of Milford Sound and then get you back to Queenstown at about 5:30pm – just in time for a rest, dinner and a night out on the town.

Experience the tranquility of Lake Wakatipu in the glow of soft morning light as the coach begins its journey south along the shores of the lake and then through the mountains towards Te Anau. A stop in Te Anau for 30 minutes at about 8:15am is a perfect time to grab some breakfast and a nice cup of hot coffee.

The journey then continues towards Milford Sound, initially along the shores of Lake Te Anau and then into the magnificence of Fiordland National Park where you will be treated to splendid vistas at every turn. The coach will stop at a number of locations both on the way and way out for those memorable photos and at a couple of locations where you can stretch your legs on short nature walks.

At Milford Sound you will join a cruise aboard our modern catamaran, Maiden of Milford, for a cruise the length of Milford Sound to the Tasman Sea and back. During the cruise you will see mountains with sheer cliff faces rising from the depth below, waterfalls cascading from hanging valleys and seals lounging on rocks from right alongside the boat.

A delicious selection of Pizza Pies, Maiden Meals, snacks and drinks are available during the cruise.

Amazing Day

Don’t miss doing this trip while in Queenstown ...everything about our day was great! Worthwhile doing the sunrise tour that way you still have the afternoon and evening in Queenstown if you’re short for time and trying to pack more activities in a shorter stay. Absolutely breathtaking scenery and definitely a highlight of our time in NZ. Highly recommended!!

Irresponsible staff

Milford Sound is a beautiful place and I would recommend anyone to visit there however do not go with Jucy. The bus ride there and back was great. Our driver Wayne was very knowledgeable and friendly. The problem was with the boat ride. We all preordered our lunch on the bus including any allergies however when we got on the boat, our orders weren’t available. The member of staff actually tried to give me someone else’s order (allergy no egg). He said they’d be ready in 10mins. A little while later someone had an allergic reaction to their lunch. The staff had to ask other passengers for medicine. After 40mins of waiting I asked about my lunch again and was told it still wasn’t ready by the same member of staff. Another staff member overhead and offered to make my lunch then and there. The captain of the boat was constantly on his phone and not steering the boat. We were not told were the lifejackets were. There was a part where you see a waterfall. We were told that we’d get a bit wet and have a facial. The doors were locked with hardly any warning so people outside were trapped. The stairs were full so people trying to get back inside couldn’t. The caption then proceeded to go straight into the waterfall soaking everyone. Soaking is different than getting a bit wet. My friend had her iPad on her which is now broken. Jucy refuse to take responsibility for this. The caption did not give enough warning, did not say we’d get soaked and did not say to put electronics away. There was clearly a misunderstanding with what was happening with the waterfall as many people tried to get inside away from the water and me and my friend were actually crashed behind the metal door of the boat. When we informed Jucy of all this we were told that nothing has ever happened like that before, implying that we were lying. Jucy are irresponsible and dangerous and I would highly recommend never using them!
