Our long trip rafting tour is 3-4 hours in length. It starts at our site and travels out with the tide close to the mouth of the river in Maitland. We will meet the tidal bore near the rivers mouth. The bore is the signal that the tides will begin to rise. As a result, rising water creates great waves over the sandbars!Once we have met the bore, we will continue back down the river through rapids like “the giggles”, “The Killer K” and “Eagles Nest”. The tour continues as we float past our site and under the bridge to our next set of waves as we join up with the 2 hour tour. The four hour tour is recommended for experienced rafters and those looking to spend more time on the river!
We offer two options for our short trip rafting tour! Our 2A starts at our site and we make our way to the mouth of the river, catch the tidal bore and ride great wave sets like “the giggles” and “The Killer K”! For our 2B as we watch the tidal bore come in from the shoreline. We will ride the rising tides under the bridge and head on down to our waves for the day! During this tour we will be going through a several sections of waves including “Bridge rollers” and ” The Nose”. This tour is approximately 1.5-2 hours in length.
Mud sliding is part of both of four hour and two hour rafting tour. Its a favourite among our rafters both old and young and is a must try for those who enjoy getting muddy! Mud sliding is usually done at different times on the 2 and 4 hour tour. Our mud sliding locations change through the season depending on the tides and times of our rafting tours!
