Underworld Rafting - BLACK WATER RAFTING
This is of of the great cave rafting trips anywhere in the world.
** Watch the video**
The 4 hour Black Water Rafting adventure in the Paparoa National Park stands proud as an attraction that delivers an unmodified cave state, so your experience is as close to stepping back in time as possible.
Visitors are fitted out with excellent wet suits, wet suit booties, gloves and an excellent safety helmet at our company base at Charleston. ( 25 mins south of Westport and 25mins north of Punakaiki ). A courtesy coach takes you to The Nile River Rainforest Train for transport through the primeval rain forest and towering limestone cliffs of the Nile River Canyon.
Once changed, a short climb is required to enter the enormous Nile River Cave System where you meander through a calcitic paradise of stalactites and stalagmites in the upper dry levels of the cave.
Once down in the lower active levels of the Cave, you meet up with a slow moving underground river on which you float in your tube using only the natural light of a simply awe inspiring display of millions of glow worms for navigation.
You will emerge from the cave into a remote and untouched "lost world" before leaving its tranquillity for the rushing bubbling waters of the low grade Nile River Rapids.
This is an award winning adventure at its best.
