My friends and I did the white water rafting on the Kaituna River. It was an awesome experience and everyone had a blast of a time. Jack our guide was extremely clear, friendly and experienced. Despite white water rafting for the first time for most of us, Jack made it extremely safe and comforting. There was also a safety kayak... More

After reading a couple on reviews i can also say that the experience as a whole is just awesome. The river is awesome with the falls and rapids, and the staff are excellent in telling the history of the river as well as the cultural significance. In my case there was some confusion about the booking and it looked as... More

Wife and I did a huge amount of activities whilst on our honeymoon in Rotorua, this included shooting, horse riding, black water rafting(tubing), zorbing and more, you name it, we did it. But this Rafting experience was hands down our highlight of the honeymoon. Not only is the river beautiful but the ride was exhilarating and challenging. You get to... More

We heard about these guys from a friend who is a Rotorua local. His advice to us was if you want an awesome experience in Rotorua, run the Kaituna, and do it with Rotorua Rafting. The guides are experienced, confident, and hilarious. The shop is nice, clean, organized, and close by. Running this section you’ll learn a bit about the... More
