The kayak guide and van driver were very knowledgeable and friendly. I'm glad we chose to kayak Milford Sound rather than take a cruise. We were concerned about it being too cold in the winter, but we were plenty warm (just layer up and Rosco's supplies the rest). We did the all-day "safari" and our only complaint was that we... More

Hi and thanks for your review, I am glad you had a great time kayaking with us, we actually do offer kayak tours that do the full length of the sound, that tour is called the morning glory, you kayak the full length of the sound then get collected by our water taxi and taken back, this trip is available...

This is the absolute quintessential Milford Sound Experience. Our guide Courtney was great, we learnt so much and had such a fantastic kayak adventure. Thank you, thank you, thank you Rosco's for providing us with the chance to witness the most beautiful corner of our wee country. This will be the first on the list if we ever get to... More

We did the day trip from Te Anau to Milford and back again. Adam from Rosco's picked us up from our accommodation bright and early. We had a great trip in with Adam stopping along the way to show us some great sights including the Mirror Lakes. Adam was very knowledgable about the local area and answered all of our... More

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
