The North Island's most popular bungy jump is a real blast. For an exhilarating experience why not try a water touch? We specialise in getting people wet, whether you'd rather a hand splash or full body dunk, we endeavour to deliver a refreshing adventure.

Good to hear you had a good time despite not participating. Perhaps next time you visit you might try out the bungy or extreme swing?!

Amazing! My daughter and I did the tandem jump and touched the water. It felt incredibly safe and they took plenty of safety precautions. My youngest daughter jumped after us solo. An incredible time!

Beautiful spot to bungy and swing above the river! Beautiful view on the countryside surroundings! A good 47 meters jump for the bungy! The swing is quiet good as well with loads of positions to choose from and quiet close to the cliff!
