Become King or Queen of the river, as you conquer grade 2-3 rapids on a bodyboard on this Queenstown adventure. Surf standing waves, ride whirl pools and run the mighty white water, before taking in some spectacular NZ scenery on a gentle river flow, and finally stopping for a casual cliff jump.
Conquer grade three rapids, standing waves and whirlpools, riding a highly maneuverable bodyboard along the Kawarau River, feeding on your adrenaline and challenging your nerves. With up to 12 km of New Zealand's best white water to navigate, as tailored by the world`s best river guides, this Queenstown experience is a full-on adventure from start to finish. You might even feel like catching some underwater currents if you are brave enough.
And when you've had your fill of excitement for the moment, there is a calm final section that allows you to take in the scenery and chill, before you stop for a casual cliff jump. An experience not to be missed if you want to try something unique, exciting and that takes you out of your comfort zone, this is one of Queenstown`s original action activities and has been operating since 1989.
Spectators are welcome for an additional cost. To get the full spectator experience, being reasonably fit is an advantage.
We reserve the right to cancel or amend any trip due to dangerous river conditions.
Please bring swimwear and a towel.

RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
