We have done white water rafting with Rafting New Zealand most years since our kids were small - they are now adults. It has always been a really friendly, family operation, but has grown over the years, without losing its friendly nature. The equipment is well maintained and the preparation for each trip has been thorough every time. They pay great attention to health and safety but it does not take away from the pleasure and excitement of the rafting. I am a New Zealander myself and am proud to see how Rafting New Zealand gives people such a truly New Zealand experience and how they make sure they use the Maori language at every opportunity.
