“Great day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

The Jet across the lake and down the river to the south coast offered fantastic scenery. The driver/guide Roffy was very pleasant and knowledgable of the local area. We felt the tour offered a good mix between adrenaline and cruising at a relaxed comfortable pace. We were fortunate to have the sun shining all day which made it all the more enjoyable.

I would highly recommend this experience especially to those seeking a little piece of South Island remoteness. Don't have a big breakfast as the BBQ lunch will well satisfy your stomach.

“2013 Work-do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

Best Xmas work-do I've ever been on.
We by-passed Mary Island and were shown the cave containing the remains of a Maori princess, before we travelled up the Wairaurahiri by jet boat. We got to explore around Waitutu Lodge and out to the coast, the weather was awesome so the experience and scenery were absolutely amazing. This adventure should be on everyones bucket list.
Thanks Roffy and team :)

“Something you must do - by Jade W”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Was in same group with Keith H, having lived in Southland all my life I have always wanted to go for a trip on this river and it didn't disappoint, that is one wild river and a river that commands great respect, from NZ's deepest lake to one of NZ's wildest rivers and not to mention the most powerful waterfall I have personally witnessed, Paul Roff knows the place like the back of his hand and not to mention along with that a great yarn based on all the history the Hauroko area has to offer. The boat itself was very comfortable, purpose built, well equipped and surprisingly quiet as its 350 horses powers us through the flooded Wairaurahiri river. If I get the opportunity again at this time of the year I would take some cash so I can buy some whitebait. So get off the couch, grab some mates (and some cash for the bait) give Roffy a call and check out some of NZ's best kept secrets and untouched wilderness.
