Welcome to the South Island's West Coast White Water Rafting

In the trips below you will find a full description of exactly what you will get on your rafting adventure, with the number of rapids, their grades and paddling type so that you can choose the intensity of river that you are comfortable with. Our company also has different boat sizes you can use so that you can choose your own adventure "fun factor". The smaller boats have more bounce so the adventure level is higher from that river. You get exactly the right amount of adventure for you. Because we raft 8 different rivers, on the day of your trip if we do not think the river is as good or as safe as it could be we are able to advise you to change to a different river on that day. This means that you are much more likely to get a river trip that has the amount of fun you want.

Out of the 23 rivers on the West Coast, we've chosen the best 8 to use for rafting so you can be confident that there will be a river here that suits you. New Zealand's Grand Canyon is located here with its massive granite gorges so we can raft families through to full on adventurers. Since we have rivers here that suit everyone we do not need to convince you to go on a particular river so that we get your business. What we do is find out a little about you and then give you free realistic unbiased advice as to which river suits you.

Our Adventure Guarantee - You'll get the best raft trip ever .. or it's FREE!
