The simple answer is, not very much. We know you might have come halfway around the world just to join Roturua Rafting on our stunning river rides, so we’ve taken care of pretty much everything. Around 80% of our guests have never set foot on a raft, so our guides are ready to give you the benefit of their expertise and get you river ready. We’ll provide you with the right gear to keep you warm and cosy, even in the colder months, so you don’t need to worry about having appropriate clothing. All we ask is that you come with a swimsuit and a towel for the aftermath! We trust you’ve not come all this way (to the best beaches in the world) without your budgie smugglers, but even if you have, don’t worry! We provide a wetsuit and boots so, as long as you’re not going commando, we can get you ready for the river.
All safety precautions and equipment have been taken care of, so even if you’re not a confident swimmer, we’ll strap you up to a personal floatation device to keep you the right side up. Our guides are with you every step of the way, so even non-swimmers can enjoy the water with us. Our beautiful Kaituna river rafting adventure is one of the safest in New Zealand, and we can provide experiences to anyone over the age of 10, with some restrictions for under 13-year olds. There’s no need to be an Olympic athlete, though some of our guides might look fit enough to be one! Anyone with an average fitness level can join us.
Great question! We’re so glad you’re keen to come and raft the rivers with us, and luckily your next steps are simple. We take walk-ins and last-minute reservations all the time, but to avoid disappointment we thoroughly recommend you pre-book any Rotorua adventures you’re interested in. Each raft can fit up to 7 passengers, and we take up to 300 rafters out every day. Trips set off about every hour and a half, so if you have a large group don’t worry! Even if you’re flying solo, we can pair you up with some other thrill seekers. You’ll probably be BFFs by the time you’ve tackled the falls together! All this means the only thing you have to do is book and turn up. With free shuttles and car parking available, even that part is as easy as can be. If you still have questions, get in touch today on 0800 772 384 to speak to us directly.
