Kaitiaki Adventures is locally owned and operated, specializing in whitewater rafting and sledging down the amazing waterways surrounding Rotorua, primarily on the iconic Okere section of the Kaituna Roiver and the powerful Wairoa River.
Kaitiaki Adventures are the only culturally infused white water specialists incorporating Maori culture into each individual excursion, giving visitors a true, unique to New Zealand experience.
Rafting from the very top of the Grade 5 Okere section of the Kaituna, Kaitiaki Adventures ensure that safety is of the utmost importance with multiple safety briefings delivered in their unique Kaitiaki way, ensuring each customer feels safe before embarking on their Grade 5 Rafting adventure.
At the waters edge, they deliver a Maori Karakia (prayer) gifted to them from the local Maori people of Ngati Hinerangi and Ngati Hinekuri, where
they pay respect to the environment and the local people whose home was based around the river.
Once on the river, visitors are guided through 14 rapids, 3 waterfalls and the amazing 7 metre high Tutea Falls – the world’s highest commercially rafted waterfall.
