TOP CHOICE 2017 Lonely Planet
Raft the legendary Earthquake Rapids, the section of the Buller River with the most whitewater in the breath taking Buller Gorge. Adventurers will experience plenty of white water action. Challenge yourself at the “swim” rapid then glide through deep pools and lush subtropical rain forest.
First Rafting Trip? No worries!! Your guides will give you full rafting safety instruction. Marty and Bruce are committed to making your river trip not only safe, but the best you’ll experience.
