Fantastic rafting experience

An outstanding experience, well worth it. Staff were friendly, engaging and knowledgable. The highlight of our trip so far. Our raft captain, James (aka- The Field Mouse) was reassuringly clear in his instructions which saw us safely through these grade 5 rapids. Fantastic.

Fun on the river

+ staff super friendly and fun while still focussed on security + good equipment that keeps you so warm that you enjoy a swim at the end + nice and tasty BBQ to finish the day + Canterbury can't compete with the scenery in Fjordland but this Gorge is really spectacular. + rapids are slowly increasing in difficulty so there's time to learn / fresh up the rafting skills Very recommended!
