Attraction details
Owner description: Whitewater rafting is the last extreme experience in the adventure capital of New Zealand and we intend to keep it that way. You will embark on a man V nature battle of willpower in one of the most scenic environments in the world. Raft where the jetboats fear to go and prepare to take a rapid in the face as you hold on during this four hour paddle experience. Don’t take photos of the river, take on the river.

We had a blast rafting the shotover river! Both of us was first timers and the shotover river was definitely the right choice so trust me take this River instead of kawarau!

The heli rafting isn’t for the faint hearted. We did his as part of a conference, I was very nervous about the rafting. The helicopter ride was awesome. The rafting guides are very professional & take safety very seriously. Unfortunately, we did have an issue on the last rapids & I got thrown. However, the training given did work & I was rescued as per the training. Probably won’t do it again but enjoyed it for the most part. Don’t do this unless you are a very strong swimmer.

All the hype about Milford Sound (which is beautiful) but Doubtful seems to get overlooked which is a shame. So much more time on the water if you book in for Doubtful and a much quieter and peaceful experience.
I highly recommend going with the Go Orange crew! They take great care of you and the bus drivers are legendary. Best commentary for an early morning journey that one could ask for!

Went for kawarau river rafting through Queenstown rafting co. it was safe and scenic, but not at all exiting as thought and as publicised. Even before going, form to be filled asking how many minor dependents on you... as if person is going to die...all big drama.
The most important part of thrilling in the rafting was missing. Can do if want to go for, but not worth as hyped and publicised.
