We enjoyed the stay and our "Traveler with little time " Kayaking program. The river was calm with enough rapids that will make your 11 years old happy. Great activity for family ! The campground and the facilities are clean, and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Thank you so much!

We took the whole family and had a wonderful time. Awesome jet boat ride. lovely bush walk. Fascinating visit to the Bridge to Nowhere and finished with a fun canoe down river. Scenery great. Excellent boat driver. knowledgeable guide. Canoeing both exciting and relaxing. Camp was great to stay at, clean, tidy, well maintained. Above all the staff were friendly and helpful. We will be back with more friends......

We loved the warm and friendly welcome at our arrival. Our jet boat driver shared his knowledge of the river, we felt very safe with his driving skills and enjoyed his sense of humour. The walk from the landing to the bridge to nowhere is not very difficult, the pathway is well looked after, it is a beautiful walk through lush native bush.

It was all utterly amazing from booking right through to the trip and the return. The service was second to none with friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful staff who made us feel very welcome. Tom was our jet boat pilot and his care was exemplary. We were a small group of women in our mid to late 60’s having yet another adventure and he was not only fun but also very considerate in ensuring we were safe and comfortable. His local knowledge was vast; his Whanau having lived and farmed in the area for 6 generations. A preliminary experience I will never forget.

The whole team at Whanganui River Adventures were a pleasure to deal with. The facilities were very clean, well organised and the gear was tops. Thomas was a very knowledgeable guide and took great care of us. We would certainly recommend this experience to others.
