Highlights

  • Informative, friendly and professional guide
  • Free hotel pickup and drop-off included

A short 15-minutes from Rotorua is Kaituna River. You can't get more thrills and action than on a grade 5 rapid. Fast and furious, you'll ride through foamy water over the seven meter drop waterfall!

Most of the trip runs through a very narrow gorge with sheer rock walls clad in ferns and other native plants providing a truly stunning backdrop to this exciting tour.

Although this trip provides full on action the pool drop nature of the river means it is not technically difficult so the trip is suitable for adventurous beginners. In fact around 70% of customers have never rafted before.

Around 15 - 20 minutes of training is provided prior to the trip teaching all the required paddle commands and safety information.

Situated in the Okere Falls Scenic Reserve the river is pool drop, meaning that every rapid is followed by calm water making it very forgiving for a grade 5 river.

You'll be provided with:

  • Safety Helmets
  • Lifejackets
  • Wetsuits
  • Polar Fleece Tops (weather dependent)
  • Spray jackets (weather dependent)
  • Wetsuit Booties
