Best Rafting Trip Ever!

"Such an awesome experience! The entire staff was great! They take the extra time to make sure that everyone has a personalized and fun experience! They are also very safety oriented while operating. The river is truly a beautiful sight and the rafting is one of the better tours I have ever done! 10/10 would recommend."

Best Adventure in Rotorua!

"Such an amazing adventure!! This was the second time I had done the trip and a first for the rest of our crew (we went for a company bonding trip). Blue, Ollie, Hailey and the whole Kaituna Cascades crew were awesome. We all cannot wait to get back and do it again."

Amazing activity for school groups

"This is the best experience for a school group. We had 20 years 12 and 13 students and they absolutely loved it. They have been talking about it ever since. The students loved the guides and had fun from start to finish. As a teacher, it is easy to organize and I feel confident with the organization and safety."

Amazing Experience

"What an awesome experience! Rafted with my wife and two daughters (16 & 15). Our guide Eion the Irishman was wicked cool. He got everyone prepared and made us all feel safe throughout. I would highly recommend, even in the middle of winter!"
