"a new kind of luxury for Milford Sound"

A new kind of experience is launched in Milford Sound mid-June… Introducing ‘Gem of the Sound’ JUCY’s new premium vessel providing year round day cruises in Milford Sound.


An impressive 29m, three-level catamaran offering extensive indoor and outdoor viewing.

The Gem has been specifically designed to capture the views of Milford with its unique Glass roofs and large viewing decks.


JUCY have partnered with Flying Trestles and will be offering a gourmet lunch prepared daily by Head Chef Hans De Reeper using local fresh ingredients.

Flying Trestles are a premiere catering company providing extraordinary food in extraordinary places!  Obento and Indian lunch boxes are also available.


Passengers can relax and enjoy the comfortable booth seating with stylish décor, ambient lighting, and no matter where they are they won’t miss a thing with High Definition Cameras  projecting live outdoor footage onto TV screens throughout the vessel.


The ‘Gem of the Sound’ will offer an exceptional level of comfort and hospitality, and will provide an outstanding experience never seen in Milford Sound.
