“A birthday surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

A great morning on the water for our family, celbrating one of our son's birthday. Bruce and kathy were a great team. BRuce uided us on the water, giving lots of info and gentle advice. We all felt safe, but enjoyed the thrill of the journey. We all swam down one rapid and three of us took the opportuntiy for some jumping off cliffs into the water. Kathy provided great support in the vehicle, taking photos along the route with our camera and providing welcome refreshments at the end.

We thoroughly recommend WWR!

“Fantastic time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2014

Would highly recommend this adventure to anyone heading to the west coast of the south island. Headed out on the river today with my family, with Bruce as our guide and Marty as our driver. We had an excellent time, 3 of us were all first timers and felt very comfortable and safe the entire time. Bruce explained everything so well and talked about our plan of attack for each set of rapids before we approached them. A couple of us were brave enough to do the cliff jumps and float down a set of rapids on our backs. The scenery is also lovely to look at as you relax in the calmer waters. End of the trip was topped off with cookies and coffee- which is roasted by Bruce's wife! Wonderful day.

“Fantastic rafting adventure!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2014

Marty and Bruce were amazing guides.
With their years of experience under their belts and obvious skill, we felt nothing but safe and secure the whole trip.
It was great having the sights pointed out to us as we went along the river and hearing the story of the land around us.
Highly recommended activity!
Many thanks to Bruce and Marty for the wonderful adventure.

“Great beginners rafting experience”

This section of the Buller river is perfect for an introduction to rafting. Wild Rivers Rafting gave us a great experience on this river. The guides were fantastically friendly, skilled and safe. Would recommend to anyone

“Great experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2014 via mobile

My husband and I had the best time white water rafting with Bruce and Marty last December.
They are both very experienced.
We were in the boat with Bruce. He made the "trip" very fun.
We highly recommend this activity in Murchison!
