  • Excellent!

  • This one was adrenelin packed with the added bonus of earthquake rapid. The helicopter hike was great with a little swing in movement up to Skippers Canyon. Friendly setup.

  • fun, but pricey - its shorter in the winter, and freezing cold, should be cheaper in the winter :)

  • Great fun and excellent rafting instructor!

  • I paid for myself and my brother for his birthday. The helicopter ride lasted all of probably 5 minutes, we went from the airport in Frankton to the edge of the Remarkables to the Kuwara river. You couldn't take your cameras, because from there you jumped straight into the whitewater. The view was nice but overall it was really overated. The whitewater rafting was pathetic.
