Oh, it was such a good day. The weather was perfect, sunny and warm. We started at 9AM. We had 2 guides with us, one of which was just practicing. So we were 6 people in a raft. We followed the instructions, we paddled fast, we hit every possible rock on our way and we laughed loud.
Yes, it was a great day and great experience with Raftabout.

If you like rapids, this is your tour. The YouTube video gives you a good sense of the trip. You are only in the water 45-minutes, but it is exciting all the way through. You are given a wetsuit and rubber shoes. You just need your swimsuit and a towel. You can rent a towel if you forget ($2). They have a great photographer, who gets excellent shots from the shore.

Great friendly staff and guides. Many great rapids before and after the huge Kaituna Falls. Awesome! Their professional photos are amazing and well worth the money. A great value, Huge Fun! Best part of our New Zealand Adventure!

They are easy to find if you prefer not to take the shuttle.

Friendly staff and great safety measures helped to make me a little less nervous. Josh our guide was very funny but also really made sure everyone was well trained and understood all the safety measures before we set off. It was an amazing experience. One I will never forget.

Our guide Josh was incredible to begin with. We did the Kaituna Waterfall and it was one of the best experiences ever! I would highly recommend doing this tour with this company. Book and don't regret!
