Overview
More
Mohaka Rafting is situated at Napier in Hawkes Bay, North Island, New Zealand provides day and multi-day trips on grade 2, 3, and Grade 5 water. Grade 2 is for young families. The full day grade 3 is our most popular trip - cliff jumps, gorges, and canyons, visit a gold mine and swim rapids in a full day adventure. The Grade 5 is for serious rafters. All have awesome scenery. Rafting expeditions; Helicopter in - raft out through the Kaweka Forest Park over 3 or 4 days. Camp at thermal pools, float, swim, cliff jump, or sit back and relax your way back to our base.

Hi Ariana. Thanks for the review and thanks for coming rafting with us. Without guests coming rafting we would not have the life we live. Hope to see you on the grade 5 soon.

We'd never done rafting before so the Grade 2 (which is the only offer available to cruise ship passengers) seemed like a good choice even if we'd been able to choose. It was calm, peaceful, and there was never a moment that I worried that...More

Did the grade 4/5 rafting upon recommendation of another traveller. Was not disappointed - the scenery is beautiful and the intermittent rapids exciting. Noteworthy was also the staff, which were exceptionally helpful, interesting, and always fun to interact with. Can definitely recommend :)
