Marty is a great raft guide with a sense of humor and on the top of things making this experience incredibly adventurous. Super rafting, crystal clear water, nature around with plenty of given description and stories by Marty. We had the best rafting day we could possibly pray for, rapids were good enough to keep is alert and free floating in the Buller river was the top! Great coffees and cookies at the end to keep us warm :) Thank you and we would def recommend this rafting trip!

We had such a great experience with Wild Rivers Rafting. Bruce and his daughter Reese were so great, both friendly and knowledgeable. I really loved going with a "ma and pa" business. We were on the water right from the start and did our learning and practice on the water while it was calm. There was cliff jumping, swimming, sitting in a waterfall and a warm coffee with Kawatiri organic beans that Bruce's wife roasts herself (and biscuits if you'd like). I definitely recommend!

Lovely morning on the river with Marty as our raft guide! He was really good at making sure we hit the best part of each rapid. Good guy, too, and made everyone feel welcome and safe. Kathy, Marty's partner, was fantastic with taking photos and making sure there was hot coffee/tea at the end. All of the rafting equipment, including wetsuits, drysuits, booties, were all top flight. This is a real family-owned business and we were happy to support them. Would surely use them again and recommend them to others!

Marty and his team were excellent in picking up, looking after and guiding our party of 8 people through the rapids on the Buller River. James and Rita were our guides on the river and made sure we had a great and safe time. Would highly recommend to all.

What a fun day! Bruce and James were wonderful, so friendly and it felt like you were going rafting with friends. Bruce gave us a really good run down of everything before getting to the rapids which made us feel confident and safe. The rapids themselves were the perfect force for us as we are beginners. We got to do a little swim and jump off a clif which was an added bonus as well as nice tea, coffee and cookies at the end. They also took photos of you while rafting and sent them to us for free which is so rare in any tourist activities. We couldn’t recommend them enough and we had an absolute blast!
