We rented 5 kayaks with our 3 children ages 17, 14 and 11. They had a lot of fun going both upstream and downstream on the Pororari River, near the Pancake Rocks site. It is a safe activity with fabulous views of the cliffs and...More
Quite safe and really beautiful. See the lush rainforest from a different perspective, look up at the towering granite cliffs, glide over clear green river pools. Idyllic! Also a good workout for your arms if you’re 50+ and female, but definitely doable. Remember the sunblock,...More
So glad I made the time to get on the water - only had just over an hour to spare so paddled up the river and in minutes was blown away with the beautiful scenery - the views of the cliffs and bush are stunning....More
What a gem of an operation. Stunning spot on the spectacular Pororari River. The owner is a real character and getting equipped for the trip is entertaining in itself. Very reasonable prices. The bush, birdlife and rock formations up the river are incredible. Absolutely recommended.
We had an awesome trip up the river. Owner- operator Ken relaxed and helpful. Quite affordable also $45 for 2 hrs. Enjoyed looking at his amazing paintings, very talented. Thanks Ken. From Andrea and Kerry
The river is tailor made for what is a totally counter intuitive idea that you paddle upstream to a section above rapids and then enjoy them on the way down. Best avoided by TripAdvisor clients who aren’t so familiar with the laws of gravity! But...More
This was the best activity we did on the west coast, although it may have been helped by the wonderful weather in stark contrast to earlier days of foul weather. Informative and friendly owner who kitted us out with everything we needed - wet suit...More
The scenery was fantastic and the river clear and cool perfect for a summers day. This is not your classic canoe trip as you will need to drag canoes up the rapids then get back in for the flat bits, but this all adds to...More
Excellent value for kayaking up a simply beautiful river. When we went, there wasn't much water in the river forcing is to walk some sections, the weather was cloudy, and yet myself and the friends I went with still had an amazing time here. All...More

The business owner lives on the property- you just press the intercom button and he walks over. When we were there it was cold and rainy, we were the only ones but it was well worth it, beautiful scenery and not very taxing to paddle up stream. The owner is a pretty easy going guy and very funny too, if you show up with $$ I don't think he will turn you down. He watches tripadvisor though, I'm sure he will tell you if I'm mistaken. Have a blast!
