Rotorua Rafting was established on the Kaituna River in 2011 with the goal to provide the best white water rafting in New Zealand and the world. Not only have we set out to be the best rafting in NZ but also to bring the best value for money rafting on the market. To date, we are stoked with how we have been doing with so many people saying their Kaituna River rafting adventure has been the highlight of their holiday.
Alongside the best kiwi senior guides, Rotorua Rafting has fast become the best white water rafting company in the region, this may not be measured in numbers but in the stoke that customers receive from coming down Kaituna River with us.
We are bringing the fun back to white water rafting, and with the Kaituna River located in our backyard, we are here to share our dream with you.
“Our goal is not to be the biggest raft company nor is it to make the most money, our goal is to love life, live life and have the best damn time doing it.”
We are all about supporting our hapori whānui (community) and helping those achieve that step up in all their kōrā (goals) as well as the fact we just love sharing our crazy fun with you all!
Every year we donate around $18,000 of sponsorship to local sports teams, school galas and many other fundraisers whenever we can.
A big thank you for supporting us and we want you to know we will continue to support Rotorua as much as we can!
All of our Rotorua Rafting guides/staff are handpicked making sure that they deliver you the best trip ever!!
They are all NZ Grade 4/5 certified river instructors, which is the most recognised and highly regarded qualification in the world.
All Rotorua Rafting guides are certified in backcountry rescue and first aid and they are all chosen primarily for their GC rating which needs to be a minimum of 5 stars.
