White Water Rafting Adventure

Half Day Rafting Adventure / Family Rafting Adventure

For the half day we spend a little less time on the water, the rapids are gentle and suitable for first time rafters.  The trip suits those looking for a gentler option with a few smaller rapids and one grade 3 rapid in there as well. We spend a couple of hours on the water and finish the trip on the main highway so you can get to your next destination – be it the Glaciers or Hokitika and still have time for other activities during the day.

There are also natural hotpools next to the river to soak in after the half day trip if you would prefer to chill out for the afternoon.

Discounts for Children under 12 years of age

Full Day Drive In

You’ll drive into the mountains for 40 minutes on a scenic backcountry road. In an old historic goldminers hut you’ll get geared up in your wetsuits, diving booties, thermal underclothes and drytops before setting off down the river.

You’ll get your safety briefing and paddle instruction as we float down the flat water section before entering the canyon where the medium size rapids begin. This is a wilderness trip, there are no roads, no people, just you and the surrounding rainforest.

You’ll see native birds and possibly other wildlife.  You can feed some of our pet eels when we stop for lunch on one of the golden sandy beaches.

After lunch there is an optional cliff jump and we can go for a refreshing swim in the crystal clear water before rafting out to the coast where we finish the trip where the river meets the main highway.

Half Day Helicopter Rafting Adventure

For the Half Day helicopter access rafting, we take a quick flight up a different river where the first hour has a heap of big volume grade 3 rapids that slowly dissapate as we meander into the rolling flatlands of the glacial riverflats. Suitable for ages 10 and above this trip offers the excitement of grade 3 big volume rapids without the added danger of grade 4-5. one and a half hours on the river sees you back at your vehicles and on the road to your next destination
