What to Expect
Frequently Asked Questions
We recommend that you wear some garments that can be worn under a wetsuit ie. bathing suit or spare undies as well as a towel and a change of clothes for the bus trip back to Queenstown.
We recommend a reasonable level of fitness for this tour, the most physically challenging part of the trip is the portage around the Sailor Jack Rapid which is required at medium to high river levels. The portage involves a small amount of rock scrambling with a few steps and short ladders up and down, and is generally navigable by most people, and a guide will always be close at hand to aid if required.
This is always going to be treated on a case-by-case basis, but in general isn't a limiting factor. Your guides will work with you to make sure you enjoy the experience.
