One day rafting, very good guiding and good company safety etc.

Great trip! We took a gentle white water experience with Josh in December. Lots of stories, lots of laughing, lots of water; say no more ...

I first heard about Eco Rafting through friends that had come back with fantastic photos of their trip. I've rafted with my family in Idaho for most of my life, so when it came time for me to plan my NZ trip I knew that I wanted to go down the Whataroa with Eco Rafting!

I didn't contact them far enough in advance to get the exact day I wanted, but I was able to join a trip they already had scheduled a couple days later. It was easy to find the location where the helicopter was to pick us up, and they provided is with plenty of layers to keep us warm in the beautiful glacial waters.

The Whataroa was low that day, which made the rafting quite technical. Josh quickly got a feel for how good a crew we were and did a great job of explaining what we needed to do in each section. The trip was fantastic, and I would love to raft it again at a higher flow.

I'll also say that lunch spot was beautiful and I've mimicked Josh's bucket meal several times now with good success.

My family and I went on an Adventure Fishing trip with Josh and it was hands down the best experience we have had while on holiday in nz. We have been on many fishing trips to nz and this trip was the best by a long shot. not only could I bring my family, they all enjoyed it and got to see first hand what fly fishing is all about. I will be back with some mates next year.

Me and my partner went on a full day heli raft on the Whataroa river. It was incredible! Scenery overload and the water is beautiful!
Josh and Darren were great guides and we felt extremely safe as Josh goes first through the rapids on a Kayak to check the path...He then took some great photos when we came through! Darren was awesome as well and really easy to have a yarn with throughout the day. The lunch they russelled up sitting below a water fall was great!

The trip is great, a helicopter ride up the river then raft out. Heaps of time on the water!! Great lunch and the freshest of water to drink straight from the river!

I can't reccomend this trip enough and it Is a must if on the West Coast. It was our favourite thing we did on our holiday which included a lot of acitivites, but this rained supreme!!

Thanks Eco-Rafting

Awasome day out!!! Totally recommend it!! Exciting helicopter ride to river, great fun with the amazing crew and unbelievable paddling down the Whataroa! I've gone rafting in many places around the world but this is by far the best place you could do it! The scenery was stunning, our guide was super experienced and onto it at all times! Had lunch at the best swimming spot ever, jumped off some high cliffs and my fried even got to guide the raft for a while! Thanks guys for a great experience!! Hoping to paddle some other rivers with you soon!!
