Westport - Wild Rivers Rafting

Judged TOP CHOICE Lonely Planet, 2012

Join us on a wild ride down the legendary Buller River Earthquake Rapids, the section with the most whitewater in the breath taking Buller Gorge.

Adventurers will experience plenty of white water action. Challenge yourself at the "swim" rapid and the optional 8 metre cliff jump.

First Rafting Trip? - No worries!! Your guides will give you full rafting safety instruction. Marty and Bruce are committed to making your river trip not only safe, but the best you'll experience.

Because the Buller River is a large volume wild river with no dams to regulate the flow, the rapid Grade 3 to 4 varies with rainfall. Ask us about the river flow when you book.

Wild Rivers Rafting, Ltd. is river-guide owned and operated. Top qualified guides Marty and Bruce have a combined 28+ years professional guiding on the mighty Buller River. Our rafting operation is audited and certified by Maritime New Zealand, and we are members of the New Zealand Rafting Association.

Wild Rivers Rafting reserves the right to cancel or postpone any trip for any reason (i. e adverse weather/river conditions). We provide all river equipment/safety gear. After the trip, relax and enjoy a snack served with locally roasted Certified Organic Fairtrade coffee, tea or hot chocolate.

Bring towel, swimwear and a sense of adventure! River time 2+ hours. Allow 4 hours total.

Minimum age 10 years old, or 13 when river is running high.

Meet your guides on SH 6 at the Iron Bridge between Murchison and Westport. We?ll transport you to the river trip start. Please see the map or ask us for directions.

Rafting Fun

Great rafting experience today with James and Rita who looked after us on and off the raft. Marty the owner was also extremely accommodating as we missed our original booking he slotted us in the day after. The river was not too challenging but fun nonetheless. The scenery is as pretty as you can expect in NZ and the light rain and mist felt we were fighting the elements and actually added to the experience! Would recommend it to anyone after some white water fun.

Great Day

Great experience with Bruce and Marty. They made it a great day. Rafting was great nothing like the commercial ventures where they are trying to sell dvd's etc. Well worth the price.
