Fitness Test: If the guide(s) on the day have any doubt about a client’s fitness they may ask them to prove it by completing a fitness-test. One quick and simple test we may use is “to step up and down a 20 cm (8 inches) step not less than 45 times in 60 seconds”. We strongly recommend clients complete this test before they book their activity and before they travel to Waitomo. Clients may also be requested to submit to breath-testing for alcohol or other drugs. Where appropriate, guides may at their sole discretion cancel a departure or remove an unsuitable client from a departing trip for any safety-related reason.

Pregnancy: We do not recommend abseiling ( rappelling ) during the 1st and 3rd trimester due to the need to wear a tight-fitting harness across your waist during the abseil.

All pregnant clients wishing to participate in one of our adventure options must provide a medical certificate from their General Medical Practitioner confirming that they are fit for abseiling ( rappelling ) and caving.

This policy is required for us to comply with the NZ Adventure Safety Regulations.

Incredible experience

Scott was such an awesome guide- super helpful and understanding with my slight claustrophobia. The caving experience was just out of this world. Walking and floating through pitch darkness staring up at a sky or glow worms. Just awesome. I’m pretty claustrophobic but there were only 3, very short tight sections and I felt comfortable the whole time. Yeah the water is cold but it’s nothibg you can’t handle and the hot shower returns the feeling to your fingers and toes quickly! Really can’t rate this experience high enough. Thank you!

Awesome unique experience!

Nathan is a humorous and experienced guide throughout our 4 hours activity. Going through caves, seeing glow worms, bit of swimming as well as 'tubing'. Will never forget this experience I had in NZ!
