Wonderful afternoon, grade 2 and low river levels so pretty cruisey - although I did nearly fall in at one point. Christian, the guide, was friendly and professional. I’d thoroughly recommend this experience.

Absolutely recommended! This trip included everything you needed, had great guides and excellent value for money! Almost 2 hours all up. River was a little low so not many rapids but it was still excellent!

Hi Jessica33333 Thank you for your great review, our rafting experience is excellent value and a great experience. The Waiau River is a Grade 2 river, family friendly, and yes a little bit low this summer due to the dry weather conditions. Thanks, the Hanmer Springs Attractions Team.

We had an amazing trip that included a raft from the base downriver, then the jetboat picked us up and we had a great jetboat ride back. This was a perfect trip for kids (10/12). Not too scary or long. We stopped Midraft and had the options of jumping off rocks into the river
