Super-enjoyable
Mar 2021 • Family
We had a great first ever rapids rafting experience. Luke is the boss! Looked after us from start to finish. We did the grade 2 course about 8km and 20 rapids. It was perfect from start to finish. The centre is very well laid out with great changing facilities and a super cafe/shop. Our 6 yr old enjoyed it so much she can’t wait to come back. Highlights included getting only a bit wet, not falling out (always listen to the coach, Luke in our case), and plenty of native birds and some geology! Would definitely recommend. We will return for the grade 3!

Highly recommended rafting experience
Jan 2021
We had a wonderful experience with the family rafting trip. We were with our two boys 5 & 7 and the staff couldn't have been any more organized, professional friendly and reassuring.

The issuing of gear was very slick and they had excellent range of sizing from small sizing to extra tall. The hot chocolate and chocolate fish stop midway and the hotdog and drink at the end were great extras.

I would definitely recommend and we can't wait till the boys are 10 to go on longer trips:)

Awesome team of people who are clearly passionate about what they do! Super friendly and committed to providing you with a great experience. Safety is a high priority to ensure a fun trip for everyone and the team have a great knowledge of local culture too. Couldn't have asked for a better guide (Mason) and definitely value for money.

Family rafting
Jan 2021 • Family
The entire experience was amazing. My kids who were just 3 and 7 loved it and the jump into the river from the ledge and the stop at the trout centre to feed the fish with hot chocolate was a great addition too. We felt 100 percent confident in our instructor Jess who made us feel very at ease with our whanau and we had so much fun going on the rapids. She was brilliant.
Would 100 reccommend anyone who wanted to do this to give it a go.

Whole experience was brilliant from start to finish. Even second time around. Best bit was guide Gab’s knowledge, tall stories, and rafting expertise! Perfect for a family, rafting trip with three generations on one raft (76 to 10 years of age). Primo!!
