Arriving in New Zealand via a Cruise Ship? Want to raft the highest commercially rafted waterfall in the World?!
Raftabout can offer you a door to door, once in a lifetime rafting experience from the Port of Tauranga!
After disembarking from your cruise ship at the Port of Tauranga you will join Mount Classic Tours on their Rotorua Shuttle. Or, for groups of 6 or more, we may be able to arrange a private shuttle at competitive rates and can organise transport to other Rotorua Activities for an awesome Rotorua Activity day.
The shuttle will drop you to our Base at Rotorua Airport (just outside Rotorua city).
This is where you will take on the challenge of rafting The Kaituna River which boasts the Highest Commercially Rafted Waterfall in the World (7 metres!). Fast and furious, this river has 2 waterfalls among the 14 rapids; two smaller waterfalls to practise on before attacking the 7-metre drop, named Tutea Falls. The Kaituna River is located at Okere Falls, between Rotorua and Tauranga in New Zealand. There is an age limit of 13 years and guests must fit the safety gear. We provide wetsuits, fleeces, booties, buoyancy aids and helmets. Guests just need to bring a swimsuit and towel.
After you have viewed the photos of your trip (with the opportunity to purchase these images) we will take you into Rotorua city where you will meet your shuttle to return you to the Port of Tauranga.
Total Cost including transport for 2 or more persons: NZ$204.00 per person
Minimum of 2 persons. Guests must be 13 years or older to raft the Kaituna River (conditions apply)
