I was one of 13 women who recently enjoyed a white water rafting experience with Sobek. I found the company really well organised, efficient and the employees well versed in safety and communication skills. Thoroughly enjoyed this trip and would highly recommend it to anyone....More
Rafting in Bali is fun and accessible to almost anyone. Just make sure you pick the Telaga Waja river, the longest and fastest river. Sobek seemed more professional than the rafting companies we came across. However, keep in mind you'll have to walk up a...More
Our family group of three adults thoroughly enjoyed our river rafting experience which was Class 2 (not very scary!) all the way because the water levels were not high. Still lots of fun, in a gorgeous 12km section of the river. Our guide, Froggy, was...More
The river adventure was overall great
Somehow Sobek ripped us off by charging more than the amount they claimed when paying with credit card. Many people were complaining about the same issue with them at the time of payment.
The initial instructions are very quick...More
I'm not a thrill seeker and am fairly conservative but like to try and do something that would make the trip memorable and different from our regular lives in a city. In Sydney, that included a horse riding trip through the park in the cool...More

Hi '33anthony2016' >> In our view, having also rafted previously with SOBEK in past years, the word you have used "SAFE" is highly subjective. For there is no such thing as a SAFE white water river in the world, let alone in Bali! For example, 'if' a participant cannot swim, then any rafting company in Bali is potentially enabling a potential incident (or worse) should a raft flip, and yes - they do regularly. However, upon participating and also observing to safety standards of several 'other' Balinese rafting companies, you have made a GOOD CHOICE with this company. Having recently chatted with SOBEK's owner about rafting safety standards in Bali, we really appreciated their frank discussion & honest opinions on the paramount importance of the safety of their customers. In our own professional view, taking children ALWAYS comes at a risk (it's the nature of doing the activity) however, personally we would NOT recommend rafting in Bali for children under 9 years of age. Other Bali companies do, and we do not agree with exposing children to such a risk as young as 5 to this type of activity in Bali.
If you would like to experience a HIGHER SAFETY STANDARD of white water rafting in Bali (particularly if you intend on taking teenagers rafting), then we would have to highly recommend SOBEK BALI RAFTING, as they conduct some of the most professional white water rafting operations (on two rivers) in Bali.

Hi I guess the respond system does not work properly , I answered this question about 9 days ago… anyway, it's about 500 hundred steps down a long stairway to the river… and about 200 steps up from the finish at Ayung river. at the telaga Waja river it is only about 20 steps to the river and 150 going up again. but this river is a little more challenging
