Most of us do not have fjords in our backyard and New Zealand's South Island southwest coast is abundant. I have now been on the fjord three times with Rosco's Milford Kayaks and they never have disappointed (obviously I came back for more). I've been living in the Southland for almost a year now and the time is almost up... More

I've lived locally all my life and had to give this one a go. If your anything like me you'll be looking forward to having a stretch and a move round after a good stint in a car or bus. The walk from the car park to the cruise wharf will not satisfy this desire. Getting in a Rosco's kayak... More

We took the option of being driven to Milford sound from Te anau so we could sit back and relax and enjoy the view. Thank god we did. It poured down with rain the whole way. Adam was a great driver that kept us entertained and stopped along the way even in the rain to take in some 'not to... More

We were here in June and decided to go for the sunrise tour. We had the guide - Courtney - just for us, which was very nice. She was an absoulte pleasure - very friendly & informative! Had a great time on the sound with almost perfect, clear weather. We were out on the water for almost four hours which... More

You cannot go to NZ and not go to Milford Sound! And the best way to experience Milford Sound is definitely by Kayak! Im not much of a Kayaker but I enjoyed every minute out on the water. My friends and I did the Sunriser Classic. We left Queenstown at 5:30am to get to Te Anau at 7:30am and Nicole... More

Milford Sound is definitely a must-go place if you're in NZ for the first time. It's almost a crime if your miss it :-) The place is simply magical! So majestic, powerful, beautiful and pristine. I heard so much good things about Rosco's but I haven't kayaked before so I wasn't sure if I was up for paddling for whole... More

My partner and I have been meaning to go kayaking with Rosco's for many years... we finally went! This really is the best way to explore Milford Sound, you get up close to nature and you can really appreciate how tall the peaks are. This was the perfect road trip from Queenstown!

This was such a great trip! We did the Sunriser Classic trip so our guide Nicole picked us up in Te Anau and drove us into Milford allowing us to gawk out the window at all the wonderfulness that Fiordland has to offer. Nicole is so knowledgeable about the area and knew all the great places to stop which is... More

There's no better way to see milford up close than kayaking. Awesome trip with rosco's. Top notch customer service. Good day safari tour including afew short walks. Kayaking definitely one of the highlight of our trip

Went in a group of six, with our guide, Adam! Great experience in the winter! had lots of fun! We ate our lunch in the middle of the lake. Travelled about 12-13km. We get to see seals at a very close up distance. I'm glad we did not take the cruise.
