When you arrive

Please phone or email us within 24hrs of your raft trip. We will update you on the weather and river conditions, and confirm your pick-up location.

What to bring

We recommend wearing light layered clothing with soft footwear (you can go barefoot in the raft). Bring some extra warm clothing in a daypack, with a camera and some sun protection including a hat. We stow your gear in drybags. If it's hot, be prepared for a swim!

Where we depart

We usually depart from the Wanaka lakefront, meeting in the parking area beside the Log Cabin. We can also pick-up from your accommodation in the Wanaka downtown area. Departures are subject to river levels, weather, and sufficient resources. We return you to your departure point.
