Rotorua Rafting

All year round

Established in 2011 by locally born and bred 4 x World Champion Extreme Kayaker Sam Sutton

Rotorua Rafting was built around a love of the river, their extensive local and cultural knowledge, as well as the best-handpicked guides to best showcase the aroha of the Ōkere awa. Located in the heart of Ōkere Falls, Rotorua Rafting is directly opposite the ‘put in’ (the start) of the Kaituna River, allowing guides to show their knowledge of the surrounding areas.
