Took a raft down the buller with Sonny and had a great time. Great crew running the place, the bullet river is pristine and they offer a bit of history on the way down the river too. Cant recommend it enough
Late September, Buller flowing nicely and 10 mates made the trip from the North Island to join me in “happening-town” Murchison for my 60th birthday celebrations
Wow! What a trip!! With most of us rafting “virgins” in our 50s it was a blast from start...More
We had a wonderful day rafting on the Buller Gorge. We were made feel welcome from the very start and during our trip.
Lots of fun and scrams to be had and the scenery on the river is awesome.
Keep up the good work fellas
My wife and I booked for one of the last days of the season which meant we had the raft and our guide Sunny all to ourselves (with his colleague Tim watching on and taking photos along the route). Sunny clearly knew his stuff and...More

Great people, great fun and an experience to remember. We had mixed abilities on board and everyone had a great time. If you want to see parts of NZ you may normally miss, in the company of great people who seem geared for fun, I...More
So, as I stood once again in the wet suit provided, I asked myself how I got talked into yet another adrenaline- fuelled activity. My husband can be very persuasive, as much as my grown up kids are astounded at what I have done during...More
It's an exhilarating rafting experience that is safe if you follow the guides instructions. I felt safe the whole time and I'm in my 50's with not a great deal of rafting experience. I'm sure you guys will enjoy it 👍

Yes it is a good idea to phone first. We do not close down as such, but instead we will run tours on demand for groups of 4 or more people. We have some pretty chilly days, and swimming is probably not on the... More
Yes it is a good idea to phone first. We do not close down as such, but instead we will run tours on demand for groups of 4 or more people. We have some pretty chilly days, and swimming is probably not on the cards, but we do still make the odd trip out just for a tickle up!
