Absolutely awesome experience that I highly recommend to all!! My family and I thoroughly enjoyed this trip from start to finish. Our guide Pete was extremely informative, helpful, funny and an all round great guy. We loved everything about this trip, riding the river rapids, gazing at the spectacular glow-worms inside the cave, the hot chocolate, and of course the... More

An outstanding adventure near Greymouth on the West Coast. Jono & Craig expertly guided and entertained us for this half day experience. Their knowledge of the area and professional guidance was excellent. We opted for the zip line in to begin the tubing on the river. We had our 11 year old son with us and he loved the day.... More

A real West Coast fun experience that I would recommend for an awesome afternoon out, from the great friendly crew to the beautiful warm spa and a beer at the end. Highly recommended!

Our guide Scott was brilliant and we were well taken care of throughout. The place was beautiful and I loved the scenery. Unfortunately I have a low tolerance for cold and was shaking at the end. Was not expecting that and thought the wetsuit and thermals would have worked their magic to keep us warm. I'd definitely have done it... More

We really enjoyed this but the walk in through the canyon is perhaps a little understated for us "older" folk... Not so much a fitness thing but agility... There is a shorter walk in that avoids the canyon so if you are claustrophobic or carrying an injury then this is the better option... But asking the group to vote when... More

The guides were great and the river tubing and zip line were awesome, highly recommended. Having good weather helped. Enjoyed the glow worm caves with the hot chocolate and chocolate bars. The hot spa afterwards allowed us to warm up a bit. Very good.

Dragon's Cave Rafting was the first stop my partner and I made at Greymouth, and we are very happy that it was. The staff made us feel welcome immediately, and informed us about everything we would be doing. Very professional, friendly and welcoming atmosphere. As we made our way out to the tubing, Jono (our guide) was full of knowledge... More

Totally blown away by the attention to detail and variety of our river tube, glow worm, chocolate in a cave experience - if you can detour and do this on your trip it is well worth it

What a great way to spend a day in the beautiful West Coast bush! The tour was well organized and the guides did a great job getting the team ready for a fun and action packed afternoon starting on the fast zip line followed by a relaxed tubing trip down stream. The glow worms in the cave were amazing. Thank... More
