Readers recommend: Milford Sound by kayak

Los Angeles Times Staff Writer

The only way to see the breathtaking beauty of Milford Sound is by kayak. Rosco’s guides take you out early in the morning, before the tour boats and planes arrive, and they let you experience the nature and wildlife of this magical place up close. No experience is necessary.
