Mohaka River Rafting Adventures

Whanganui River Canoe Tours -  New Zealand

The Mohaka offers some of the best introductory wilderness canoeing and rafting in New Zealand. We carry a range of boats to suit every thrill level—the inflatable self-bailing Sport Yak kayaks will give you a real taste of action, or, if you prefer something a little drier, hop on board one of our large self bailing rafts. Either way the Mohaka offers a great range of grade 1 to 3 rapids for the right amount of team building fun.

"Dear Simon, we would like to pass on our greatest thanks to Mike and Yugi for the wonderful trip and experience that they gave us all on our Mohaka Trip which we started on the 28th of December. We knew that having 5 children with us would have its challenges and that it wouldn’t always be easy – but it was a huge success!!.  We feel that both Mike and Yugi regularly went beyond the call of duty to make our trip an exceptional experience and I say this because to have 5 children, the youngest being 5 enabled these children to experience something exceptional and for Mike and Yuji to accommodate them as they did is a credit to themselves and their jobs as guides. In fact over the course of the 4 days we (all of us) elevated them to no longer be our guides, but our captains and then commanders!!! Entertaining the kids for the full day of rafting really takes a special person and both Mike and Yugi were heroes in the eyes of the younger boys, thank you both. I would appreciate it if you could pass our comments on, and to thank Mike and Yugi very much for making the trip one to remember. We will definitely pass the word around should we have any other friends or family that would like to do a rafting trip in the future."
