Rangitata Rafts is a family business and our number one priority is making sure you have a great day. There’s no rush, no crowds, just great people and awesome rapids on one of New Zealand’s most beautiful rivers.
Our trips are exciting, fun and relaxed. We’re out on the river for nearly three hours which is more than enough time to learn some boat skills, get your share of some of NZ’s best rapids and make a raft-full of new friends!
With Grade 1 to 5 white water guaranteed on every trip, all you have to decide is whether you’re up for the big ones or would rather admire them from a distance. (Our photographer can walk you around the largest rapids if you think they’re a bit much!)
Our guides are internationally experienced, quick with a joke and will teach you everything you need to know to tackle the river. From paddle technique, to safety maneuvers you’ll be ready for anything the river throws at you.
