The night before our scheduled tour, our camper van broke down on the remote road an hour outside of Milford Sound. Not good. Luck was on our side, first, we broke down next to a campsite with the last phone until Milford. Second, the great people of Knobb Flat and Roscoe's made sure we got to Milford. The camper van,...

This was one of the best things we did in NZ. Our guide Adam was great. He really knew his stuff and you could tell he totally loves his job (who wouldn't?). We were extremely lucky with the weather and got the most beautiful day to be on the water with little wind and plenty of sunshine. We got to... More

A few of our friends had done this tour and highly recommended it to us and after reading other reviews just had to add this to our itinerary. We had an absolutely great day with Ollie, from the scenic drive to Milford to the actual kayak tour, just spectacular. Ollie was a really great guide, full of local knowledge, great... More

Had great morning out in perfect conditions on the Stirling Sunriser. Everything was was made easy and fun by Tristan & the team who were professional but totally low key, authentic and entertaining. Recommend this to anyone who wants to experience Milford Sound (*fiord!) close up and with our the crowds.

I recently did the morning glory kayak through Milford Sound with my partner in late December 2014. We were in a group of 8 people, including our tour guide Ben. Ben was an excellent and friendly guide, who shared many stories of Milford Sound and the Maori culture with us. The kayak was a long way, however it was not... More

We went for the "day safari combo" and had lovely weather, sun and no wind at all. We saw both seals and dolphins up close, Really awesome! Best way to experience Milford sounds. Rosco's provided us with all nessecery equipment, cloths etc. And of cource Marlan did a good job and gave both facts and humour ;) Super day!

Awesome way to start 2015 - sunrise kayak with Roscoe's. Be forewarned that the casual approach to time meant not REALLY sunrise, but it was early enough to get a lovely quiet tour of entire sound out to Tasman Sea (almost). They take you back on a motor boat so you do a half day of kayaking with swim option... More

The weather on the day of our trip was not ideal for kayaking; high winds with up to 60 knot gusts and a lot of rain, so we were half expecting the trip to be cancelled. However, our guide Tristan made the best of the situation, and took us out on the water showing us what he could without risking... More

This was no doubt one of the highlights of our trip to New Zealand. Ben was our kayak guide and he totally went above and beyond to show us an awesome time through Milford Sound! He was super knowledgable about the area and the plant/wildlife. Would recommend this to anyone in a heartbeat. Totally worth the money to join Rosco's... More
