Check in is at Hannahs Clearing 19KM south of Haast, then a short drive to the river to launch point. Our jetboat is new, comfortable, with a rough to keep you dry if it rains. Forward entry allowing ease of access onto the boat. A journey from the ocean to the alps allows you to experience rain forest and bustling bird life. Learn about the kiwi bird, New Zealand's endangered flightless bird. See greenstone and how the Maori travelled great distances to collect this precious and beautiful stone. We follow the river up through still water and mirror images of the lush beech forest to stunning waterfalls. We then have a break at the top where an optional walk allows you to experience the sound and smells of the rain forest first hand.
