Riverjet - The Squeeze (2.5 to 3 Hours)

The adventure begins with a scenic boat ride through Tutukau Gorge before you disembark in knee-deep warm water and head towards a narrow gap in the cliff face ahead for the challenge of the Squeeze.  After maneuvering your way through narrow crevasses, climbing boulders and wading through waist deep warm water you emerge in stunning NZ native bush.  Then take the opportunity to relax in the thermal waters of a naturally heated bathing pool and sit under the 4m heated waterfall! After 'squeezing' your way back to the boat it is time for the action packed ride back.

Duration: 2.5 to 3 hours.

Suitable for Children: Minimum age is 8 years old.
