  • Description
    Enjoy the excitement and exhilaration of white water rafting on the King River. Your day will begin with a safety briefing from your experienced guide, before getting kitted out with your helmet, paddle and buoyancy vest. Then it’s time to hit the water to learn the basic commands that you will need to get you through the 16kms of Grade two to three rapids ahead. (Rapids are graded from 1-6, with 1 being easiest and grade 5 being the highest grade permitted for commercial rafting groups). 

    As your guide yells out to you, “forward, hard paddle” you will explode through forty, non stop, action packed rapids with names such as The Escalator, Weir, Surfing Wave, Dual Flush, Playground, Ego, Thumper, Churner, Double Barrel and the Whirlpool. 

    There will be plenty of time to have fun surfing waves, crashing through stoppers and enjoy ‘going with the flow’. Morning tea and lunch is included. The King offers a day of fun and excitement in the wilderness and no previous rafting experience is required.
