The Karamea River boasts some of the most challenging white water rapids reaching Grade 5 in many places. The aptly named rapids include Greys Maze, Ass-Kicker, Growler, Scare Case and the wildest rapid of the trip, the 400m long Holy Shit! 

While the Mokihinui provides a grade 4 to 5 pool drop, steep continuous technical rapids and world class scenery. 

Both of these rivers offer truly special kayak experiences and with Karamea Heli Charter we can provide tailor-made trips to suit you. To find out more, please contact us
