We had a great trip with Paul. He picked us up at the Tuatapere hotel and took us to the lake. He gave us a bit of history of the lake. We stopped at Teal Bay for a walk to the hunters' hut before an exciting trip down the river to the Waitutu lodge, where we were staying the night.... More

Wow what an amazing trip. We did this trip with Roffy. The scenery was amazing. We went with a group of friends. Roffy was amazing and a very skilful driver and the Wairaurahiri River is absolutely incredible. Roffy was very knowledgeable about the area. This is a must do! You won't be disappointed.

I was looking forward to a boat ride up a remote, winding river but never expected it to be so exhilarating and beautiful. Johan has obviously been driving the river for many years and his experience and boat skills added to the trip. It was a real highlight and Lake Hauroko is amazing.

I hadn't been down the Wairaurahiri river for nearly 30 years (and what a wonderful river it is, powerful, dangerous and dark, a real adventure) so was really looking forward to seeing it again. Paul (Roffy) was a great host, he knows the area, its wildlife and its stories and people well, and is generous in sharing his knowledge. He... More

The weather was wet, cold and windy and we had a great day! Value for money was awesome with over 4 hours or river jet boating and a full hot lunch was provided. The scenery was brilliant and the owner / driver only too willing to help. It certainly pays to check out the local businesses away from the main... More

Our family had a great day on the Humpridge Jet. The ride was beautiful and exciting - the teen agers and college kids in our group completely enjoyed the ride. We learned about the river and Lake Hauroko, had a great meal, walk through the forest, time to see the coast, walk across a suspension bridge and just had fun... More
