So I had my very first Dive with Dan and Dave. I didn't know what to expect and was therefore a bit nervous. Despite that I never felt unsafe because Dan always told us what to do next. I especially appreciated his patience in and under the water since it took me some time to get used to the diving. Because of that the first dive was to be honest not that enjoyable as I was focused on the breathing and all the things you have to pay attention to.
That is why I was really surprised how much fun the second dive was. The techniques of the diving were far easier to perform and so I could enjoy the feeling of beeing 10m deep in the water. It was a special experince to feel like beeing weightless and to swim with some fish.
Thanks again to Dan and Dave for all the patience, the photos and not to forget the pancakes (which I ate for the first time the english way)!

It was rainig all day long - but I had such a great day with Tongariro River Rafting.
After a short briefing (good equipment and all information needed) we went to the river. It was a lot of fun as our guide Nick was simply great!
Afterwards we went to a hot pool and then back to the base. There we had some yummy hot soup with bread and laughed about the great pictures that were taken during the trip.
I can highly recommend this tour - also on a rainy day (as you get wet anyways).
Thanks again to the whole staff and our guide Nick.

Awesome location, next to the river bank in the middle of nowhere! No phone reception, no traffic, nothing but just nature! Would recommend when travelling from Tauranga to Opito to East Cape. Just make sure you arrive before dark as the road is a bit tricky.

Honestly one of the best times I have ever had in my life, so glad I booked with this company. This was my first experience travelling alone from the UK and it couldn't have been any better. I still can't believe how good it was to be honest. Everything was taken care of from beginning to end and even before I left home the communication with Nic my tour manager was absolutely fantastic, every question I had was answered pretty much straight away and with a smile so I had no worries at all! The tour itself was amazing and Tom our tour guide is such a great guy, his passion for his job and his country is infectious. Thanks for a great time Tom, don't change mate! I could spend hours writing about how much I loved my journey on my tour but it still wouldn't do it any justice. If you are thinking about going to NZ then I can't recommend Haka Tours highly enough...nothing but good things to say about these guys! Thank you all!

Awesome campground. We were there in June so the ground was unstaffed & an honesty box was in place. $8.50 per person. No power here but clean toilets, incredible view & very well maintained. Short walk into the gorge. Perfect. Will certainly return!
