Owner description: A gentle scenic excursion packed with family fun for everyone from 3 to 103 years old. We take a unique 45 min drive into Skippers Canyon, an iconic area steeped in gold mining history, then float down gentle grade 1 and 2 rapids on the famous Shotover River in either guided rafts or inflatable kayaks. See gold mining relics and sheer canyon walls as we navigate the river with rapid swims and rock jumps.

The key part is that kids need to have fun & they had a great time!! Simon & Cameron(i think) were very informative and had a great sense of humour..Esp with a 4yr old- you don't have much to do in queenstown and this is the best family fun that you can have...Gentle rapids, spectacular photographs and great memories...

An excellent trip... Friendly and informative guides, stunning scenery and a great adventure for families. Our 7 year old loved every minute... even jumping into freezing cold water! Thanks for a great trip.

We don't normally post messages about our holiday experience but this was one worth noting. Our hosts Marshall and Mark were informative, amusing and very accommodating. We have an 8 year old son and he loved the experience as did his parents! This is a spectacular half day experience for adults and kids.
