Went on the 4-5 grade trip on 27th December. Good fun, dramatic scenery, excellent and entertaining guides with safety a clear priority. Highly recommended. Many thanks to all the guides but Bill and Johnny especially.

Amazing experience, great team and fantastic environment - always felt safe and aware of the surroundings and wouldn't change a thing about the trip except now i want more :D, i'd never considered rafting as something to do and this was the place to do it, Thanks Mohaka Rafting!

Great day out on the Grade 3, Whitewater Plunge. Not too taxing at all, first time in 25 years, I'd say suitable for almost all! Great experienced and knowledgeable guides. But to push the boundaries jump off the raft and cruised down with the current (not rapids!). So cool. Thoroughly recommend! Thanks Norm, Bill, and Kelly.

Thanks to the professional team, it was an awesome trip. If you like rafting or try something decent, they are the one. We were entering the grade 4/5, first of all, the team help us learn to control raft clearly and easy to get. They have full knowledge of the safety and also lot of fun. The senic along the trip is brilliant, beautiful valley and impressive landscape. Had "floating buffet" with great view, best ever. Come and you will never regrad.

Thanks to Norm and the team at Mohaka Rafting for a fantastic experience! I was part of the Havelock North Venture Scout group who tackled the Grade 3 trip. The whole trip was great; with a mixture of experienced rafters and first timers there was something for everyone, good training on the quiet water, exciting rapids where we had to use our newly-learned skills, leaping off cliffs, swimming through scenic canyons, a weta-filled cave... I have rafted elsewhere in NZ and overseas and this trip rates as the most professional and well organised. The staff were friendly and helpful and our guides extremely competent and informative. The free DVD of the trip and the opportunity to camp on the lawn were much appreciated! Highly recommended -- we'll be back to do the Grade 4-5! Kay, Havelock North Venture Scout Leader
