Careful instruction and training is provided. Your safety comfort and enjoyment is our main priority and we have a range of equipment and canoes to suit every one. The emphasis is on relaxation and fun, all in a unique setting.

Typical Day

Upon your arrival we will serve you with either a Barista Coffee, cup of tea or an ice cold drink. You can drink this while you fill out your registration form for the journey.

We will then give you a safety briefing which shows you the camp sites, we talk about how to read the river, and navigate your way through the rapids. You will then take with you a water proof map case with information in it to help you along the way as well.

Once you have had the safety briefing you will pack your barrels and dry bags ready to go into your Canoe/Kayak of choice.

We then depart for the river where the we will show you how to paddle, the different strokes to use and how to safely pack your canoe. If you have chosen the 1 or 5 day journey, you can then practice on the rapid at our boat ramp. If you have chosen the 2 or 3 day journey you can practice at both of those entry points as well and once you feel confident and we have seen you paddle, you then will depart for your intended journey secure in the knowledge that you have been given the tools to embark on your journey both safely but having the ultimate time of your life as well.

On the final day of your journey we will meet you at the boat ramp with home baking and either a hot or cold drink (depending on the weather) to make the end of your journey finish just perfectly.

We then transport you back to our base in the comfort of our air conditioned bus for larger groups or minivans for the smaller groups.

You can then choose what to do next, have a shower, another coffee, stay another night, enjoy the magnificent views while you debrief, or simply pack your vehicles ready to go home or to embark on another adventure, all the while planning your next unforgettable journey with us.

It is our mission is to serve you in whichever way we can to make your journey the most memorable one you possibly can have.

Age range, type of group

We cater for large groups, small groups, youth aged from 8 years old up to over 70 years old.

You don't have to have great levels of fitness to do this journey however there will be a maximum of 7 hours paddling per day. You can choose to take more days to do the journey if you choose, this will mean that you don't need to paddle so many hours per day.

We have a high level of safety procedures therefore we don't put a single person in the river alone. What we will do for you is find another group for you to fit in with so that you will have the safety and security that if something was to go wrong on the river, that there would be people there to help you.
