I looked long and hard for a Rafting Company in Hawkes Bay and Mohaka were above everyone else. I took a school group and changed the numbers attending many times, never was this a problem for them. They were excellent, a fantastic day and very professional. if your in the Bay give Norm a ring.

professional guide, felt very well taken care of. brought extra fleece and beanie for us in case we got cold. Guide was very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna, and even some geography stuff. Wish i had gone ahead and book a class 5 instead because I'd have been in good hands, no questions about that. LOVED everything about this... More

We have done several raft trips in the US and abroad. I would rank Mohaka Rafting as one of the most professional. Our guide was superb with the raft and very informative about the geology and biology we were drifting pass. We took the Class 3 day trip as we did not know about Mohaka's abilities. Now I wish we...

Fantastic rafting with the best value I've seen! We had an awesome day on the water with Kaylee! The trip was about 4 hours, cliff jumping was so fun and lots of pictures to commemorate the day! Every staff member was so kind and clearly enjoy what they do! After we got off the river Maryann had coffee/tea/biscuits for us... More

We had a wonderful day white water rafting (Grade 3) as a way of celebrating my husbands birthday. Our guide Jon was fantastic - he was clearly very experienced and I felt utterly confident in his skills (and that's coming from someone not at all sure about water sports!), he was very knowledgeable, and the day was a great combination...

we did the day long class 3 trip and found it to be a perfect way to spend the day seeing undeveloped river gorge and having a little excitement but not too much. The guide was very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna and happy to share.He knew the river perfectly and gave good direction to get us trough the... More

From start to finish our rafting experience was absolutely brilliant. Enjoyed every minute of it. Our guides were all very friendly and knowledgeable. It was a good balance between the serenity and the excitement on the river . Would highly recommend them.

We did the grade 3 trip with Gwyn and Maia (not sure of the spelling, sorry!) and a lovely Danish couple on their honeymoon and it was a perfect first rafting experience. We did wrap around a rock on our last rapid but we felt perfectly safe the entire time; you are definitely in the hands of professionals. Our trip... More

We did a float trip while on a cruise ship stop in Napier on Jan 28 2014. Our guide was Maya from Switzerland with the other two rafts having Canadian guides. Norm runs a class act business. His company provided everything we needed including a filling lunch at the end of our trip. The scenery was beautiful, guides knowledgeable and... More

Did the Grade 3 with a group of friends and loved every moment! Great intro to white-water rafting starting the day off easy and then doing more challenging rapids in the afternoon. Our guide Tyler (Canadian) was awesome, very knowledgeable and safety conscious but we still had heaps of fun and there was plenty of cool stuff including, cliff jumping,... More
