Whitewater Rafting on Kaituna River - Grade 5


  • Suitable for adventurous beginners
  • The world's highest commercially rafted waterfall
  • Exhilarating, adrenaline-pumping fun!

Situated in the Okere Falls Scenic Reserve the Grade 5 Kaituna River features the worlds highest commercially rafted waterfall, the awesome 7 metre Tutea Falls. Try it if you dare!

What's Included?

  • Safety equipment provided - Safety Helmet, lifejacket, wetsuits, wetsuit booties, polar fleece top and spray jacket (weather dependent)
  • Complimentary pick up and return from central Rotorua
  • 50 minutes of whitewater rafting
  • Full training provided

Get your adrenaline pumping with a highly exhilarating whitewater rafting experience out on Kaituna River. 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, hence suitable even for brave beginners.

Approximately 15-20 minutes of training is provided prior to the trip teaching all the required paddle commands and safety information, ensuring you can have more fun on the water!
