Rafting Route 62 is the only river rafting company operating in the Robertson on the Breede River and have been in operation since 2004. The trip is about 10 km and you paddle on the most scenic section of the Breede River .  The river is gentle enough for first timers, with enough small rapids to make it exciting. This is an unforgettable experience for the whole family. They operate 7 days a week

Very nice paddle with a couple of Rapids. Done with two kids on 10 and 13 with no problems - nice scenery and swimming opportunities all around.

Easy rafting down the Breede River, lead by an extremely interesting and informative guide. The view is beautiful and there are two stops for refreshments and a picnic lunch, all included in the package. This is such a worthwhile experience - would really recommend it to anyone keen on the outdoors and wanting to give rafting a try.

If you are looking for an adventurous activity in Robertson and not scared of getting wet, look no further. Robertson Backpackers organizes a lovely half-day rowing experience down a picturesque portion of the Breede River. Inflatable two man boats are used.

A beautiful, easy row down the Breede River. We had a wonderful time and Kevin is a fantastic guide. The route is a wonderful balance of relaxing drifting and more adventurous rowing. A lunch stop (with lunch provided) on the river bend and snacks is included in the price!
