Great Experience - Great Service

Rafting Guide was great. Our family had a great time. This was one of our great family activity in New Zealand. I we go back to south Island of New Zealand, we'll definitely visit here again.

Exciting time on the water!

Despite being very nervous about rafting before the trip, I really enjoyed my time! It's a great way to experience rafting as well as the exhilarating jet boat ride back! The trip started off cloudy but the weather cleared by the end and we also had great views of the surrounding scenery.

Fun!

My first time rafting was alot of fun. Accompanied by a young expert who was very informative and entertaining. The return jet boat ride was exciting with the pictures to prove it. My fears have been allayed and I am nearly ready for grade 3! Amuri are a good provider. Thank you.

Jet Boat

Please make sure to fix the road to reach Jet boat. Kids and elderly persons can easily get hurt with such a drastic way. You didnt even had a vehicle for transport for that way. Total disappointment . If I had seen this I wouldn't have booked it.
