Wairoa River RaftingThe Mighty Grade 5 Wairoa River
Located in Tauranga, New Zealand 150
Take on the mighty Wairoa River in an adrenaline pumping rafting expedition you’ll never forget!
The Grade 5 Wairoa River is renowned for having some of the best white water action in New Zealand. Kaituna Cascades run the whole of the river including the bottom three rapids and the lower waterfall!
After a good safety talk and a few light jokes, your into it. A few small waves and the first rapid “Humpty Dumpty” will have you nicely warmed up – before heading straight into ‘Mothers Nightmare’ which has a technical grade 4 rock garden entrance followed closely by a sweet 2 meter waterfall.
Then the action doesn’t really slow down for the next hour or two !
Experience the thrill of ‘The Rollercoaster’ – a long hard and violently fun staircase of whitewater that will get even the hardest of souls going. Feel the rush of ‘The Waterfall’ which has an awesome 3 meter drop into a churning pool of white water! And then continue down through the rest of the Wairoa Rivers amazing boulder-strewn rock canyon in a combination of awesome grade 3 & 4 rapids and waterfalls.
There are also 2 optional cliff jumps for those that just want more adrenaline…. Topped off with a small lunch and refreshments at the river !
The Wairoa has it all – come check it out for yourself
