My wife and I booked for one of the last days of the season which meant we had the raft and our guide Sunny all to ourselves (with his colleague Tim watching on and taking photos along the route). Sunny clearly knew his stuff and...More
We had great three hours on the Bullet river, a really nice spot for rafting eventhough we had absolutely no rafting experience. There were plenty of rapids as well as just floating in the water passages and a cliff jumping spot with jumping oportuneties from...More
Highly recommended! We stumbled on this on a stop-over in Murchison and are so glad we did it. Sunny and Jackie were superb guides and gave us a great balance of adrenaline-fuelled stuff with calmer options for the not-so-crazy. They are clearly very safety conscious...More

Thanks to all the team for this nice experience last autumn!
I recommend to all the people who want to discover rafting to go with Ultimate Descents. The team is really professional and they don't forget to laugh!

Yes it is a good idea to phone first. We do not close down as such, but instead we will run tours on demand for groups of 4 or more people. We have some pretty chilly days, and swimming is probably not on the cards, but we do still make the odd trip out just for a tickle up!
