Tandem kayaking is a niche/specialty activity compared to traditional rafting trips in the area. There is nowhere else in the world that you can tandem kayak a river like this! Our ‘Epic Tandem Kayak Tour’ is the most hands-on, head-first approach to conquering the mighty Kaituna River. NZWA offers tandem kayak trips to anyone who wants to experience the amazing world of whitewater, head-on, for themselves or side-by-side with friends. No prior experience is required! In fact, this tour is the BEST whitewater kayaking excursion in the world for someone with no experience. Sign up and let us take you on a one-on-one trip down the famous Kaituna River, off the world's highest commercially kayaked waterfall and through 14 exciting rapids – all through an amazing river gorge, surrounded by subtropical native forest. (Average trip time is 45 minutes to one hour on the water.) You will need to bring a swimsuit and towel. All equipment required for the tour is provided. You will have an entertaining and experienced personal guide all for yourself during your trip. Transport is available from Rotorua if required.
