Experience one of the most thrilling activities available today! Since it's break-through in the 70's white water rafting has become a key member of the extreme sports family.

Your fellow rafters must work together as you guide yourselves down the purpose-built course! Follow the instructions of your qualified tutor and paddle hard as you launch the raft over the swells! The 700meter, International Grade 3, downhill course is perfect for practising the basic principles of white water rafting!Once you have arrived and been welcomed to the centre your experience will begin with a full safety briefing whilst you collect your safety equipment. Your qualified instructor will run through the basics to white water rafting before guiding you down to the rapids! Now to begin rafting! Climb aboard the 6-8 man raft and work together, with the rest of your group to guide yourselves down the raging course. You will participate in approximately 3-4 runs down the 700meter course!
