We timed it perfectly today, high tide, little wind so we had a fabulous trip up the Pororari River. Whitebaiters, trampers and plenty of birds to see along the way.

Awesome experience, great way to see the national park from a different angle. Little bit of effort as you work your way upriver (nothing too extreme) and then really relaxing with stunning views as you drift downriver to the start point.

Excellent value and would recommend to anyone.

Beautiful 2hrs on the river. Peaceful and majestic in lush bush covered gorge.
A small amount of bird life. Would love to have heard more.
Gentle rapids were fun.
Owner Ken very friendly and interesting
People doing other tramping or cycling should add an extra half day or day to do this.

I would strongly recommend this trip to all vistors, especialy in sunny weather. The excursion is very good value and boats are generally available for 'walk ups'.

The plastic kayaks and gear supplied is great.... booties, waterproof pails and sunglassses ties all came in very handy.

The scenery is gorgeous and sime great picnicing spots so recommend taking lunch or a snack if wearher is nice and your time permits.

you can travel as far upstream as you wish... for the nore adventurous as the crystal clear river gets shallow just drag lightweight kayak fof short periods (inclyding some over gentle rapids) smd enjoy the thrills on your return.

Highly recommended for all ages, populaf with kids and teenagers.

In cold weather walk the track parallel to river... it is worth seeing!

First time in a canoe for many years. So lucky to have such lovely scenery so close to home and a fantastic activity to take my teenage grandson on.
Ken, the owner was very helpful and gave great advise.
We were all provided with life vests.
More than happy to recommend to others, which I already have done and hope to go back and spend more time up river.
