Milford Sound

Are you someone who likes the idea of working in a high energy, yet remote environment?

During the day Milford Sound can be a bustling and sometimes crazy place but once all the visitors leave, you are left immersed in the raggedness of the Fiordland National Park. This is the best time to explore and learn why Milford is known as the 8th wonder of the world.

Most people that live in Milford Sound call the Day Cruise vessels their office. Their typical roster is 10 days on, four days off with work starting between 6–8am and finishing between 5–7pm.

Our people. Our places. Milford Sound, New Zealand.

Roles in Milford Sound include:
  • Superstar chefs who want to swap the kitchen for a galley and love the idea of working in one of the most beautiful places in the world
  • Multi-talented maritime extraordinaires who have a passion for the outdoors and can do everything from tying a bowline to washing dishes

If you are lucky enough to live in Milford Sound and work on the Day Cruise vessels you will most likely be based in the Milford Sound Village. The Village has hostel style accommodation for workers which is subsidised by Real Journeys. All food is provided. You'll generally make your own breakfast and dinner, with lunch provided on the vessels.

Living in Milford is for anyone who loves to make the most of their days off. Whether it be exploring the end of the famous Milford Track, getting out on the water kayaking or even jumping in, Milford is what you make it!

If you love the idea of exploring and you don’t mind a bit of rain, Milford Sound is for you!
