This was an incredible experience with a fantastic company. They were quick and courteous when replying to my questions over email and very friendly and helpful in person. We did the Stirling Sunriser trip, which involves a very early start, but was worth it. Our guides Abby and Jennifer were very nice and very knowledgable. They clearly wanted us to... More

A special way of seeing the sound. It's quiet, I was in a group of three with two kayaks out on the water. We got up close and personal with sea lions and penguins from afar. I could only imagine if a whale had surfaced or a pod of dolphins. I feel it's much more environmentally friendly than a large... More

Hi and thanks for the great review, I would just like to say about the food option you bought up, we did use to have a food option available on one of our tours, but we dropped that as there are so many people with different food allergies, people know what they can eat so it is best you supply...

Just returned from a wonderful day out on the water with Jared as our guide for the Stirling Sunriser. The weather was great which made the experience all the better. We took the kayaks on the boat our past the falls - when the boat stopped, I then realized that we were getting into the kayaks on the water from... More

Just loved this day. The Milford kayaking was a very good adventure mostly when the waves got bigger than I was expecting, but the trip guide was such a lovely girl who did an excellent job out there guiding the group. Also liked to stop at The Chasm and at the Mirror Lakes.

We booked the Sunriser Classic with Rosco's and had the pleasure of having Tristan as our guide. The experience went very smoothly, with the entire Rosco's team exhibiting much attention to safety. This is definitely the way to see the Sound!! Tristan was informative and entertaining mixing facts and folklore. His Haka with the waterfall in the background was spectacular!... More

We did the sunriser classic with Tristan as our guide and it was easily the best kayaking trip I have been on. Milford is a mindblowing place and I gather the weather can be changeable but we were lucky to have fairly good conditions with just a bit of chop. Tristan did a great job with making everyone feel relaxed... More

We picked up by a coach at 5.50am in the morning from my motel, and travelled a pretty long distance to our destination. The team was very organised and Harlam was great and humourous too! My hubby and i felt that the 4h kayak was physically pretty exhausting already, so lucky we did not sign up for the tougher ones.... More
