Safety is our primary concern. However, any river trip is not a Disneyland ride and without some risk.

Kaituna Cascades reserves the right to refuse any person or cancel any trip for whatever reason. Kaituna Cascades cannot be held responsible for personal injury or equipment loss or damage. Any person thought to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs will be refused passage and no refund will be given.

Our guides come mostly from a wildwater kayaking background; their experience enables them to safely assess river conditions for our clients’ safety. They have a very professional attitude to rafting/kayaking, great personalities and are fun to be on the water with!

All guides are registered and trained to the standards of the appropriate authorities.

Kaituna Cascades actively supports some of New Zealand's best Whitewater competitors in representing New Zealand at National and International competitions.
