Ride the Wairoa awa's rapids and get a taste of riverbugging on this compact fun whitewater section located upstream from the Poripori swimming holes near Tauranga. Grab your mates and family and enjoy the action during the water releases on designated Sundays from September – May.
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.
