“An adrenaline rush and the highlight of my trip...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

The experience was way better than the water rafting we had in Phuket. It was an exciting adventure of 2 hours ride down the 16km Telaga Waja River which included a 4m drop! The river was very rapid with many rocks and boulders at the sides and in the middle of the meandering river. Our guide was extremely skillful and we didn’t even paddle much as he did most of the hard work and manoeuvring, avoiding the rocks and other rafts.

There were many low-lying branches and obstacles along the course and we had to lie completely flat in the rafts to avoid injuries and the guide did very well to warn us beforehand! He can speak fluent Japanese, in fact a lot of the guides can speak Japanese. The other 2 Japanese ladies in my boat hailed from Nagoya.

We noted that after the 4m drop, other rafting companies had ended the activity by stopping at the side of the river and the people had to carry their paddles up a very long and steep flights of stairs. However, with Bali International Rafting, we continue to paddle past many of them and when we eventually stopped, we only need to climb up a short flight of stairs where shower facilities and a hot lunch buffet awaits us (it was only so-so). Our only complaint was we wished the guide would let us paddle more!

Do book the rafting online before going for your trip. We bought all the photos but forgotten to tip our awesome guide!

“Sea Walk ... Way Cool.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

We purchased these tickets from trip a deal website for $60 AUD each from $95... Great saving.
They took us through a safety video, short boat ride and then fun underwater. Around 30 mins underwater and included lunch.

It was like nothing I have ever experienced and my husband dives he also agreed. The colour was great with lots of fish.

Worth doing if you love the water.

“Bali International Rafting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

The rafting was fantastic by Bali International. The scenery is magnificent. Our river guide spoke good english, was very expert in his job and we had a lot of fun with him. Lunch after was great as were the photos taken by them. But Club Aqua, there are 80 steps at the end, not 30!! The driver to get there and back was good, but Club Aqua, we were picked up first then 4 others and you told them the driver would take them to a coffee plantation after the rafting but neither Club Aqua or the driver or the 4 passengers told us!! We felt very uncomfortable complaining that we had to get back. Bad service was not appreciated after such a great day.

“White Water Rafting At Its Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

Second time doing white water rafting in Bali and didn't want to endure all the steep steps at the end like the first time. Looked around and found Bali International Rafting (through Club Aqua) and confirmed they did not have many steps at the end of the rafting. Was the best day out I've had in a long time. Friendly staff made us feel very welcome. Awesome rafting with spectacular views and lots of fun. We went as a group of 3 adults and 3 teenagers in 2 rafts and had a ball. After a couple of hours rafting and about a 30 step climb at the end, a traditional Balinese lunch was served which was delicious. Highly recommend this company.

“Excellent Seawalking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

I was a little worried to start with before entering the water, actually nearly contemplated not going in the water, but I am so glad I did it,as to be one of the BEST things i have done so far in Bali. Would highly recomend this company. The staff were so attentive and watched you all the time to make sure you were ok. Cant say enough about it........... it was AMAZING
