About Us

Kaituna Cascades was the original company to explore and open up Rotorua’s mighty Kaituna River and the now legendary 7 meter waterfall – a long standing achievement and one we are very proud of.

We were the first company to name the now famous rapids and give people the opportunity to paddle rafts and topo duo kayaks down this awesome river. For each person that achieves this adrenalin rush it is a personal triumph and a once in a lifetime experience. We get to do it almost every day “It’s the best job in the world!!”

Kaituna Cascades continues to be the best, is always fun and most importantly strives to be the safest company on the river. Since being established in 1991, we are still locally owned and operated.

Our super friendly staff are all hand picked due to their love of the outdoors and years of river experience in both extreme kayaking and white water rafting. The guides love being day to day comics with everyone that walks in the door! Having years of experience means that they can relax and entertain while keeping you safe!

Being out on the river is our absolute passion, We look forward to meeting you!!!
