Highlights

  • The best eco tours are intimate, like this 10 person tour
  • Challenge yourself, but enjoy the security of a guide in the boat
  • Whio numbers have spiked here: take the chance to spot some
  • Part of your tour fee supports conservation in New Zealand

You will start the day by meeting at our rafting base in Turangi, where we will equip you in all the gear necessary to keep you warm before we drive you out to the river. After an on-shore safety briefing you will be on your way, with the first rapid just around the bend.
While you are tackling the heart-pounding roller coaster rapids you will be told all about our Blue Duck Project and hopefully spot some Blue Ducks in real life.
Along the way you will be given the opportunity to go ashore and check the trapping lines. You can do your part for the project and help us check that the automatic traps are all charged with gas and good to go, before heading on downstream to navigate more rapids.
As well as putting in the work $10 per person from these trips is donated directly to The Blue Duck Project Charitable trust. So you can walk away from a great morning out knowing that you have helped out with conservation in New Zealand.
