Lots of fun and a nice spot! We jumped the 7km waterfall almost without getting wet! Cool stuff, very dynamic and entertaining.

In the short trip down the river you do three waterfalls (including the 7m drop), swimming in the currents and lots of rapids. Our guide, Blue, was awesome. The photographer's pictures are worth the money. You can see the pictures before you buy.

Great fun, the guides were really enthusiastic. 7 metre waterfall was worth the money alone.

Great rafting trip with only four boats and not every boat was full with people.

The grade 5 rafting with a 7 metre waterfall drop is worth to visit in Rotorua.
