Had a lot of fun. Guides are great. The river tubing I felt was a little short but great fun none the less.

If you don't expect top end type adventure tourism, but want an awesome (perhaps quirky) experience with a great fun guide - you will have an amazing time. What it lacks in finesse it more than compensates for as only the West Coast could do. Excellent package deal value and awesome experience - thanks Pete. Feet finally thawed out in... More

We braved the freezing black water rapids at the start of winter, fell out of life tubes on two occasions, almost lost an extremity or three. BUT! We had such an amazing time. We ate snickers and drank milo in a dark cave under the glow worms and frolicked in the water for over an hour. The dash to the... More

After not really really knowing what to expect on the day, we can now look back and smile at the wonderful time we had. I do think the name should be changed as this wasn't really 'rafting'. Had a ball of a time however floating down the beautiful river in our tubes :-) The zip line was fun, would highly... More

Had a great time on the Dragon's cave rafting tour! The guides were friendly and knowledgeable and communicated everything about the tour clearly. Rafting was awesome and the glowworms were amazing, so pretty! Once we had all the gear on the cold wasn't a factor and being inside the cave was a lot less scary than I thought it would... More

Had an awesome time. The decision to be able to add different adventure activities to the trip is a bonus. I was lucky enough to be in a group that were all water confident, so we got to do the rapids a couple times. The glow worm caveis incredible, and Kraig was very kknowledgeable about the glow worms. To cap... More

Really glad you had a fantastic time, and yes, we do pride ourselves on knowing all about our little 'friends' in the cave. That hot spa and a little something at the end really just tops it off, doesn't it? Thanks for a really great review! -Wild West Team- More

Fun experiance. The cave and glow worms were amazing. Loved the 3 meter tube jump! Thought zipline might be even better if it was longer tho. Make sure to go on a day the river water levels are high for tubing! Spa and snacks nice addition afterwards. Overall was a great day.
