Kaituna Cascades was the 1st Company to start Rafting on the Kaituna River. We have been operating trips for over 26 years and are the closet company to the river The kaituna river is super famous for having the Worlds Highest Commercial Rafted Waterfall - 7m Tutea Falls. Awesome scenery, warm water and 3 waterfall makes this a perfect river for anybody. Open all year round. Minimum age requirements are 13+ years old

Great experience with Sam and the guys today...some of the rapids are fantastic and there's no faffing about; you're into the water enjoying it right from the start. Whether you've rafted elsewhere or not this is a well worth a go!

Yep that's the whole tour including changing briefing rafting and photo slide show after. At Kaituna Cascades base - they are right at the river so no driving at all :)
