We had a group of four women who decided at the last minute we wanted to fit in quick kayak before we got on the road to Auckland for our flight back to Melbourne. Justin and the team made the experience so easy. Safety, comfort and friendly service are high priorities for this business.

We booked this rafting trip last minute, I am not experienced in rafting but had such a fun time, the guide Stephen was really knowledgable about the river. It was defiantly a highlight of our trip and would recommend the number 5 river raft trip. It was value for money and great to get picked up and dropped off.

This was by far the best thing I've ever done! Ever! It was so much fun and the 7m waterfall was just amazing! Scenery was unreal! Our guide, Steve was very friendly, helpful, resourceful, and as you would expect, experienced! Would definitely do it again and recommend it to everyone! :D

We went on a cold rainy day and had an absolutely amazing time. We weren't cold at all and my husband even jumped out of the boat for a quick swim - in the winter, while it was raining. They provide wetsuits and LOADS of entertainment on the trip. The guides are all very experienced and patient. I was a bit freaked about the waterfall and am so glad that we did it. The photos are amazing and we'll be back for round 2 if we're in town again! Thanks!
