- sliding down rapids;
- swimming down rapids;
- floating down fast flowing chutes and waves;
- climbing waterfalls; and
- jumping off those adrenalin pumping 20ft ledges into pools of deep water.

It was excellent! We learnt loads from the guide about the environment down there, plants and mining etc . Really informative.
Just the right amount of adrenaline for my boys and me and lots of laughs along the way! I was nervous but needn’t have been. Would definitely recommend and would love to do it again. – L Kramer, 2023
We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed it. The guides were good and looked after us, my son loved it and said he wants to do it again some time. Thanks again. – M Burton, 2023
