We chose the Jetboat/Bridge to Nowhere walk and talk/Canoe option and we had a FANTASTIC time. Our contact with Joe as we booked and made arrangements was efficient and pleasant, our guide (Jonathan) was relaxed, thoughtful and knowledgeable and the area - spectacular. We learned a lot, didn't think about work or chores for a whole day and we will be recommending Bridge to Nowhere Tours to everyone who will listen. Really A++++++ experience.

We had a great time on our tour, which was a jet boat ride an hour up river and a 40 minute bush walk to the Bridge to Nowhere (then the same in reverse). It’s a beautiful part of NZ that you can only visit by boat. Our guide Jonathan was really good; friendly and imparted lots of local knowledge and history. Jonathan carried in tea, coffee and cookies for our break at the Bridge to Nowhere but we had all packed a picnic lunch as well. While at the Bridge, Johnathan gave a interesting talk about the settlers who had tried to break in the land and make a go of it post WWI. The tour departs from Pipiriki, which is pretty remote - nothing there and no mobile phone coverage. Anyone doing any adventuring on the Whanganui River should read the historical novel “Landings” by Jenny Patrick. It’s set in the early 1900s, when steam boat excursions from Wanganui (as it was then) to Pipiriki were very popular.

Jonathan and Joe, who skippered our passenger jet boat to the Bridge to Nowhere and the jet boat that took our bags Lodge, were mines of local information and very helpful. This was a great trip for scenery, and because of their knowledge of human and natural history. The walk into the Bridge was stunning and the stories arresting.
