This was a highlight of my trip to NZ. Such a fun experience and the guides were fantastic. Sure, the water is chilly at first, but you quickly get over it. It's worth the money. I would love to do it again. I've never heard...More

This is a real fun activity and very well run. All the gear is supplied and full instruction is given by the very professional guides. On the day, we were accompanied by Rose & Dallas and they both did a great job showing us what...More

I have to say up front that white water sledging was fantastic fun and pretty much suitable for all ages for anyone with basic swimming ability. However the actual getting into the river left much to be desired. First off, Frogz isn't (any longer?) an...More

We did the Roaring Meg. It was awesome. Some hard work is required in some areas but once you are through the rapids it is a nice gentle drift the rest of the way.

We opted to try the river sledging due to the fact that we aren't surfers, so the surfing option didn't appeal to us, neither did the canyoning or the speed boat river experience. What an adventure! The Roaring Meg gave us a few grade 3...More

So much fun!! The staff was friendly, personable, knowledgeable. There was a gal in our group that didn't seem to be able to swim very well and they pretty much hand-guided her down the river safely! The nicest part was that that didn't deter the...More

My daughter signed up in Wanaka and not enough people registered so we drove 50 drive miles to Queenstown. Worth the extra time spent getting there. We dropped her at a restaurant named Gibbston Tavern. Her guides, Adam, Dan and Yaka were excellent. They were...More

Very fun alternative to whitewater rafting. Unfortunately the rapids were not to impressive, but if they were rated higher or were more demanding it may deter tourists. Too bad certain river sections or alternative river options were not available. Overall i would highly recommend. Rose,...More

WARNING--- the title is a tad bit misleading. When I heard the term "river boarding" I expected some sort of fascist torture technique, but it was nothing like that at all. In fact, it was a quite fun experience, in spite of the fact that...More
