We were a group of 14 Cantabrians looking for some adventure on the Coast - and we found it with our day of rafting on the Whataroa river. Awesome experience with well-qualified, safety-conscious guides who were so relaxed and also reassuring to those who hadn't rafted before. The rafting was mixed in with some waterfall jumping, and and some abseiling, and a delicious lunch - were we just hungry or was that the best outdoor lunch ever? Barney has great cabbage-chopping skills! We had two safety kayakers which was very reassuring. All the boat guides were very experienced and great to spend the day with. Thanks Weka, Percy, Kennet, Gareth and Barney for a great day out!

What to say about this heli-rafting trip I've just had last weekend. Everything was on point! The crew really did a good job making the guests feel bond like a team, which really helps when you're going down grade 5 rapids on a dinghy with 6 strangers. We all instantly felt comfortable and were soon cracking jokes between rapids.The bucket-paddle lunch brought some West Coast laid back charm to the whole experience. Could not recommend you this company more! As a comparison with the famous Kaituna white river rafting up in Rotorua, yes it is a bit more expensive, but there's a sense of true adventure you won't get from more commercial places, and the colour of the water... man, nothing beats the bright blue glacier water! So if you only have time for one rafting experience in NZ, do it with those guys! It will be unforgettable!

We had a great day white water rafting on the Mikonui! Thanks Josh for an amazing river experience and helping a somewhat apprehensive party of women head down the river! There was much joking, laughter and a delicious lunch. Thoroughly recommended to both the adventurous and slightly less adventurous!

To end our adventure on the West Coast we decided on something we hadn't done before, White water rafting. We had an amazing day out on the Mikonui river with Josh and his team. Amazing unspoiled scenery, and some great yarns Josh! Lunch was provided which we enjoyed on the river bank. Can't spoil the surprise by telling you what we had but we are all going to copy the idea. Everything along the lines of warm clothing, wet suits, life jackets etc were provided along with a good safety briefing. A great day out from Ross.
