We weren't sure whether the river conditions were suitable for our youngest 10 year old but the guides Marty & Bruce were very reassuring and we felt safe throughout. Booking was easy, all gear provided and we were toasty warm even in April! The rapids were perfect for our 10 year old not to be scared but she did have to hold on pretty tight and the white water was enough to give our teenagers a thrill. Bruce was really excellent at guiding and instructing and informative throughout. Great leap off the cliffs towards the end too. Good fun having a swim beside the raft but pretty cold even with thermals and a wetsuit! Great fun thanks guys! We loved it!!!

Wild Rivers rafting generously gifted the St Johns Cadets a chance to have a real adventure on the mighty Kawatiri ( Buller) River. My son had been very anxious and worried but also keen to be a part of the team building experience. He came home absolutely estatic. Although he was tired, the stories of all the rapids, their names, the adventures they all had, went on not only in to th enight, but over the next few days as well. He was way more confident about water and feeling safe and very excited about another trip in the future! Thank you very much for the generous gift of a team building challenging experience. It will be a well remembered trip!

Great to see the wild life a long the way. Such an awesome and fun day with great guides Bruce , Marty and James who made the day a memorable and safe trip. Highly recommend this rafting trip to everyone, a trip of a life time.

I would recommend this for anyone that wants to try something different, even beginners. The guide is well seasoned and very safety conscious. They even offer to take photos with your camera from uptop following you down the river, folllowed by hot drink afterwards. Its very enjoyable and swimming is equally as fun. I recommend this and will be using them again in future.
