We took the one day trip to the Bridge to Nowhere, jetboated up and partway down and then canoed the last 10 km to Pipiriki. Fantastic. Our guide, Thomas, was superb. He took everything seriously in that he made sure we were safe, pointed out features, told us history, looked after us, and he did it all with good humour. Thomas fitted us with life jackets, properly briefed us on safety, had us seated correctly in the jetboat and did everything he could to ensure that we had a great time. The HQ is the old school which closed about 8-10 years ago. The folk there were also great, ensuring that we had plenty of coffee (complimentary) at both ends of the journey.
The trip itself is gorgeous. The river has cut through the limestone and created a deep gorge. The scenery and history are top rate. Best of all, this is a great way to see the river and experience a little bit of a daring adventure in the canoe, all in a day.
