Take on the Grade 5 Kaituna River with highest waterfall you can tandem kayak over in the world, 7 metre Tutea falls. No experience needed, you just need to be under 80kgs and fit for an adrenaline-filled adventure down one of the most beautiful rivers this country has to offer.
Our tandem kayak trip takes you down three waterfalls and many amazing rapids.The customer sits in the front of the tandem kayak and the guide in the back. If you do go upside down you simply let go of your paddle, lean forward and the guide rolls you straight up.
It is a high performance trip carving in and out of eddies and finishing with tail stands, which put you high in the air, at the bottom hole. The Kaituna River is the only place you can do a trip like this.
The scenery is spectacular, passing through a deep river gorge with native forest all around. Tandem kayaking is also an excellent way to learn some kayaking skills yourself or to find out what it's all about.
Allow 2 hours for a tandem trip or grab a combo deal and combine it with a half day or full day kayak lesson.
