Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

If you live for outdoor adventure, then this active excursion is for you. You will get wet so bring along a towel, a change of clothes and washable or river shoes, as well as a hat, sunglasses and sun protection. Don't worry about bringing your own equipment - each raft is outfitted with life jackets and helmets. A drive from the ship takes you through the popular beach resort town of Mount Maunganui and into the open countryside. Once you arrive at the edge of the Kaituna River, you'll meet your expertly trained guide who will offer a full safety briefing. After you don your life jacket and helmet you'll step into the raft and maneuver it through the waves, through calm waters, over wild Grade 3 rapids, unspoiled bush lands, past the tree-lined riverbank and the exciting grade 5 waterfall that plunges 22 feet into the river below.
