    Decent, but no photography?

    Was a fun day, but there was 0 photography allowed. I had bought a gopro attachment just for white water rafting. On arrival we were told gopros were not allowed...strange because i have done rafting in auckland + overseas and it was never a problem. To add with that, there was no photography taken by go orange...every other rafting company has a phorographer that takes photos throughout downstream. There were some amazing views, sadly i hAve nothing to show for it. You need to review your rules/regulations and if not, at least provide some kind of phtographer...
