Yeah we have all the gear to keep you warm on the river - you can have wetsuits too if you like! Normally in November the water is around 18 degrees :) In summer even warmer - up to 24-25 !

Yep that's the whole tour including changing briefing rafting and photo slide show after. At Kaituna Cascades base - they are right at the river so no driving at all :)
