What You Can Expect
Immediately following the jet boat ride, you proceed to Cavell's Rafting Lodge, where you change into a full wetsuit. Transfer to the heli-pad and climb aboard a turbine-powered helicopter for a spectacular rollercoaster flight up Skippers Canyon.
You will land at Deep Creek, where you'll meet the experienced white water rafting guides. After extensive safety instructions and paddling techniques, board your raft and paddle over peaceful waters at first, before striking the exhilarating rapids of the lower Canyon. Experience rapids such as Rock Garden, Sharks Fin, Toilet, Pinball, Jaws, Sequel and the unforgettable, 170 meter Oxenbridge Tunnel, followed closely by Cascade Rapid. From your take out point, you will be transferred to Cavell's Rafting Lodge for a hot shower and sauna, before returning back to Queenstown.
Guides are fully licensed and are carefully chosen on the basis of their skill and experience, their ability to make sound decisions and their ability to communicate and identify with our clients. Rafting on the Shotover River varies in difficulty according to river levels. In the event the Shotover River is unsuitable, rafting may be transferred to the Kawarau River.
great fun day, very well organised. A must for all ages....
This tour was amazing!
This tour was amazing!
No access via the icy roads in winter made the triple challenge the only option to link the jet boat and rafting trips. Well worth the extra money for the chopper ride though. The jet boat and the rafting staff were very effecient, knowledgable, friendly and often very funny - Jack the rafting guide in particular. Couldn't imagine not having done this trip. Just great fun.
This was a great experience. The Jet Boat ride was a real thriller, the helicopter ride a fun way to get to the rafting (instead of a 40 minutes bus ride) and the rafting a wonderful adventure. The whole tour was very well organized and the flow from one activity to the next was smooth. Highly recommended!
Well organised, flexible and so much fun!
Very fun! I took the helicopter ride and the pilot kept tipping from side to side and doing tricks it was awesome. Jet boating was thrilling, white water rafting is always a blast, the only downside being the smelly wetsuits but it was still great!
I had a great time! I would do it all over again.
What a great day. First the jet boat - what a buzz so close to the canyon walls. Then the helicopter (a bit of a cowboy) but a great way to go then the white water rafting- excellent!
I really appreciate Viator refunding the portion of the excursion that could not be carried out due to high river waters caused by the unusual heavy rains. We could not book for another day as this date was the last day our tour would be in Queenstown. Viator understood the situation and approved a refund. I appreciated Viator's customer friendly attitude. Because of this, I will definitely book future excursions with Viator. Thanks, Viator!
