Nice way to see a beautiful river

The rafting was a really fun way to see a beautiful river - the rafting was grade 2 - so fairly calm which is great if you are a little nervous, or just want something more peaceful (just don't expect to fall out, or be full or adrenaline). It was really good as wetsuits and booties were provided, so all you need is yourself :) The jet boat ride was super fast and really exciting!!!

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.
