Full description
Situated in the Okere Falls Scenic Reserve the Grade 5 Kaituna River features the world's highest commercially rafted waterfall, the awesome 7m (21ft) Tutea Falls. Although this trip provides full-on action the river is pool drop meaning that every rapid is followed by calm water making it very forgiving for a grade 5 river.

Around 15 – 20 minutes of training is provided prior to the trip teaching all the required paddle commands and safety information. Then there is aroun 50 minutes spent having fun in the river rapids.

This is serious fun for advanced rafters or even adventurous beginners.
