ENJOY THE SCENERY AND GO WITH THE FLOW!

Riverboard historic Kawarau River at a much gentler pace, with the added thrill of a jet boat ride. Enjoy the scenery and go with the flow!

Float on bodyboards through a high-volume river at a gentler pace with no white water — just tranquil beauty.

This is a perfect trip for the less confident in the water. Start with an adrenaline-boosting Goldfields Jet boat ride upriver. After a safety introduction, jump into the calm section of the Kawarau River.

Enjoy spectacular scenery and hear some of this pristine river’s history. Finish the adventure with a kiwi picnic served at the historic Goldfields Mining Centre.
