Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My son and I really enjoyed kayaking on a beautifully sunny day in Milford sound. Everything was well organized and gears in very good condition.
Our guide was very friendly and happily shared his extensive knowledge on local and natural history of the Sound. Delighted to have seen 2 fur seals tumbling around like washing machines , to help digestion.

Was enjoyable tour with helpful & knowledgable guide. Enjoyed kayaking through Milford Sounds so much, didnt realise we'd gone as long as we had. Learnt a few more things about the place too. Even though Ive been here more than once (on Ferry twice) its still a surreal place for me. You get to be more up close to the mountains at a good pace . Would highly recommend Roscos Milford Kayaks

Can't fault - bucket list experience I won't forget. The young guides are cool and cruisy. The safety and gear up was rigorous. The pace was cruisy. The time of day was sublime where you can really 'experience' the landscape on a deeper level.

Phenomenal kayaking experience - Milford sound is stunning and this offer you the opportunity to really explore and enjoy the scenery away from the busy boats. We kayaked alongside seals and at one point a small pod of dolphins were in the fjord with us super close around our group it was incredible. The guides are fantastic very friendly and informative and shared a lot of info about the area and some of the history. They lend you thermal clothing which is helpful because it is freezing! We did the sunrise classic which is the inner fjord experience so not very rocky would have loved to go further out.

We had an amazing morning with Rosco Milford Kayaks. After a Long drive over the mountain in darkness and rainy, foggy weather the clouds disappeared and we had wonderful sunnt and calm weather. You have to turn leftvery early after arriving to Milford, and you can easily miss this (we did and spend some time in wrong places). Rosco had organised info and logistics very efficiently and we had a very friendly and excellent guide. She guided us through some wonderful hours. We were split in small groups (1 guide and 4 couples in double kayaks).

Ollie our guide was fab and so knowledgable. Kayaking around Milford sound was everything I hoped it would be. We did the day safari which I’d definitely recommend.

We did the Paddle and Walk which was awesome. The walk is mediocre as it is more of the same...a walk through the forest for a couple of miles and then turn around. It doesn't get you to any profound views, but it is, nonetheless, a walk. I would recommend a kayak trip only to anyone who is interested, as the walk part is not spectacular. You can walk to many places that are more spectacular on your own.

(M 32) Absolutely 100% must do.
Highlight of our New Zealand trip!!
My partner and I did the Stirling Sunriser, with Damon as our guide.
Beautiful weather, not much wind, only one other couple on our trip.
Don't let the difficulty rating put you off, very doable paddle on and off for the 3.5hours. I'm not much for endurance but enjoy recreational fitness. Easily done.
Scenery was stunning.
Awesome to get up under the waterfalls!
Guide was funny and informative.
Pictures don't do it justice I can promise you.
