Kaituna RiveR

Raft the highest commercially rafted waterfall in the world!

The Kaituna River is our backyard and playground, with an all kiwi crew and home to not just one but three impressive waterfalls, including the highest rafted waterfall in the world, Tutea Falls at 7m there is no denying that something is fantastic about this trip!


Whether you are a first-time rafter or a whitewater legend, we will guide you through one of the most beautiful rivers that New Zealand has to offer.  The bonus is that the Kaituna River is also one of the warmest rivers in New Zealand.

The Kaituna river has been ranked as the best rafting in the world due to the kind nature of the river mixed with hair-raising waterfalls. It enables us to provide a tailored tour to match your adrenalin needs whether it's rafting your grandma or a full-blown adrenalin junkie we will give them the trip they desire. 

Can't swim? Not a problem. We will walk you through every step to make you feel confident and ready to take the plunge rafting over the 7m waterfall. 

We want to give you a lifelong memory of our spectacular backyard as you spend one hour exploring an ancient native forest and some of the best whitewater on the planet.

Dressed in like a ninja in a rubber suit we will keep you toasty with the newest kit including wetsuits, booties, neoprene jackets, life jackets, and helmets. 

We are stoked to see you on the river with us soon.
