The only way to experience pristine rainforest, crystal clear rivers and breathtaking scenery is to take a white water rafting trip. This is not a trip for your average couch potato!

The 2 man sports rafts are deflated and share carried in to the start of the river, this all adds to the hands on adventure. A reasonable level of fitness is required for this tour.

On the river Sports Rafts are group guided. Skilled guides show you how best to negotiate the rapids while maintaining a very safe environment in which you can enjoy the thrills. Our Sports Rafts are super stable. Anyone can do it!

Grade 3 rapids. Rapid grade can vary depending on weather in the area.
