We meet at our base 15 minutes before the tour starts. You are also welcome to use our free pick-up service as long as you are staying in a hotel or motel in central Rotorua. For that, we will pick you up one hour before the start of the tour. You have to register with us and your guide will give you some important information about the tour. Afterward, you will receive an initial briefing to prepare you for the Rotorua Rafting tour. Your guide will then hand you all the high-quality equipment you can put on in one of our changing rooms. Here you will find lockers where you can store your valuables. Perfectly equipped, we will then go to the starting point of the tour at the river.

Before we start the tour we practice a few paddling techniques in the water. You will also receive a briefing to ensure your safety in the river. We will spend about 1.5hrs on the river, starting our tour at the foot of the Aniwhenua waterfall. Afterwards you will enjoy the lush jungle, cascading waterfalls and impressive caves.
