Had an amazing time white water rafting on the Kaituna river, including the massive adrenaline rush going over the 7m waterfall! All along our guide kept me and the others in my raft well informed about what to do to stay safe along the adventure. Amazing natural surroundings of native NZ bush around the river too - awe inspiring. Cool... More

This was a very fun experience. In terms of commercial rafting trips they have it down. They prep everyone very well and get you great gear. When you are on the water they get some sweet photos, and you get to go down a 7 meter waterfall! Thats pretty epic! I've rafted in some incredible places and the waterfall definitely... More

To all those whom are thinking I can't do this... You can! The guides are amazing and if you do change your mind before the big drop you can get out. I thought about it but I did it and so glad I did. To the guides, thanks for making it an awesome day. The river was awesome too. Had... More

My husband has actually rafted with this same company over 9 years ago and loved it so he brought me back! The guides were so much fun and although rafting has an element of fear that goes along with it, I really felt like these guys knew what they were doing. We rafted the kaituna one day and the next...

I did the Kaituna Grade 5 with my workmates. One of the best experiences ever! Definitely a must do in Rotorua! The guides are extremely experienced and have a high appreciation for safety but also make the experience memorable! Our faces going over the 7m waterfall were priceless! Can't wait to go again.

We had such a great time! Lindford took us and was great with my auntie and mum who were apparently the most nervous people he'd ever had! The 7m drop was incredible and would definitely recommend it to beginners and experienced people!
