Phoned this company as the discounted deal on BookMe didnt have enough slots for 6 people for the date that we like. Luckily, Blue managed to accommodate us on such a short notice, and even gave us $20 discount each! The guy is skilled and funny and made sure that everyone was having fun and was feeling safe. Would definitely... More

We were on our Hooneymoon and we stopped there just to see the falls and the nature, it was then when we saw a photographer taking position and we started talking to him. He told us he was waiting for the raft to come through the big fall to take pictures. It was a big fall and couldn't believed it!... More

Surfs Up! I have seen the owner drop in regularly at our hostel, nice fellow, and obviously after doing one of his tours, absolutely happy that I chose them. Don't get me wrong, all the guides and other companies seem to be very friendly with each other which allows for a very cool atmosphere between all the guests involved with... More

A big thank you to Hämish and all the boys at Kaituna Cascades for putting my weary mind at ease and taking us down the rapids and falls of the stunning Kaituna River and for sharing with us the cultural significance of the places we were in. Chur bros ;D

We massively enjoyed this - we've been rafting around the world and while this is relatively short section of rapids, this was the beat rafting we've ever done. There were a lot of awesome rapids in the time and we had a great time.Thanks guys!

I did the Kaituna waterfall trip with a bunch of friends and we all had a fantastic time. The staff at Kaituna Cascades were really funny and professional, so I'd have no hesitation in recommending this company to anyone else wanting to get wet & wild!

Really memorable experience - a white water rafting opportunity not to be overlooked! Despite the less commercial appearance of the base (a tin shack in a field) we were kitted up well and greeted by friendly staff. All the necessary equipment and briefings included. As the only 2 on our trip, we were a little anxious that it may be... More
