Well, I accept it is one of the good raft for the novice (though they grade it to be 5), what I felt was that the rafting was quite short one. Just few rapids and then finally ending at Tutea, to my surprise after a 7m drop, I asked when will we reach Tutea, is this the one before that... More

Hi there Glad you had a good experience on this river...wish we could make it longer! However the next rapid after the finish is a Grade 6 so not raftable! Now that you have had some rafting experience, maybe come back and enjoy a longer rafting experience on the Rangitaiki or the Wairoa - which is the best rafting in... More

I'm sure this would have been a good experience. Unfortunately for us the trip was cancelled due to water levels. Not the operators fault. However, the communication from the operator was very poor. My wife and I did not know about the cancellation, so we showed up, so did several other groups who had not received the information. Base was... More

Thanks for an awesome rafting trip and all the help afterwards when we had an incident with the car afterwards. Pete and Kerry were super helpful, very knowledgeable with First Aid and they were very patient when it took so long for us to get it sorted and everyone was taken care of. The rafting on the Wairoa is AMAZING!... More

We had a fantastic time with Wet 'n' Wild rafting company - the guides were very fun, informative and clearly very experienced. Great set-up and experience from start to finish. We did the Kaituna river trip and the waterfalls were amazing, still buzzing from it now!

I can't review the experience on the river with these guys because I didn't make it that far...they left without us! We booked a 12pm tour, arrived before 12pm and they had gone. I received a phone call at 11.51am asking where we were as we were meant to meet at 11.30 and they should have left by then! How... More

We cannot understand why we have got such a poor review from this person. She admitted to us that she failed to adhere to the terms and conditions of the 3rd party agent she booked through (it was not booked directly with us). Their T&Cs are that once you have made a booking you are required to contact the operator... More
