Just upstream from the Poripori swimming holes near Tauranga – your adventure awaits... Grab your mates and family and enjoy the action in during the Wairoa water releases on designated Sundays from October – April.
Our tour departs mornings prior to the water release, allowing us to paddle and walk our riverbugs up the pools and rapids of the bedrock gorge before the water comes. Once we reach our upstream destination we'll brief you on river safety and do some practice. When the water arrives everyone can have a go at surfing their bugs on the wave, and after we're all “surfed-out“ we'll bug downstream through the fun whitewater gorge to round out the tour.
