Rafting Trips

Experiencing New Zealand fishing by raft is highly recommended. Reach stunning remote backcountry areas without the cost of a helicopter. Another key advantage of a raft is it can take you to water far less frequented by other anglers.

All rafting trips are carried out by qualified rafting guides that maybe the fly fishing guide themselves or another operator. Rivers range from grade 3 to 5 so there is some fun whitewater action to be enjoyed but the main focus is the fishing.
