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.

Well worth the cold!

Super great experience. Does require some level of fitness and flexibility. The small spaces and tight squeezes at points can make you a wee bit anxious but nothing to worrying. It was an amazing activity and with it being winter there was no one else on our tour. Was definitely worth the cold water for a private caving experience! Our guide was super knowledgeable and very personable.

Great adventure

Well supervised,unaware we had to bring socks so had to buy . Wasn’t expecting it to be full on caving but the instructors made us feel so comfortable and at ease that it turned out to be a real adventure. Not for anyone suffering with claustrophobia! Well done guys !,
