Description

Enjoy the thrills of white-water rafting with an exhilarating ride along the Kaituna River, including rafting the spectacular Tutea Falls—the highest commercially-rafted waterfall in the world.

Be picked up from your hotel, sit back, and relax as you travel to the Kaituna River in the Bay of Plenty region. Upon your arrival, a team of professionals greets you and gives a brief training session teaching paddle techniques and providing safety information.

Next, put on your rafting equipment and prepare yourself for a pulse-pounding whitewater adventure on the Grade 5 rapids of Kaituna River. Enjoy 50 minutes of thrilling rides through foamy water and over a total of 3 spectacular waterfalls among the Kaituna River's 14 rapids.

Practice rafting over 2 smaller waterfalls before attacking the spectacular 23-foot (7-m) drop of Tutea Falls, the highest commercially-rafted waterfall in the world.

When the rafting trip ends, you can view and purchase professional photographs of your experience before returning to Rotorua.

Amazing time to be had for all, meeting new people who have a really pleasant attitude towards the experience. The guides are absolutely amazing to meet and banter with. Will come again for the other White water rafting experiences (got me hooked and its only my first time White Water Rafting). Thanks again!!!!
