What people are saying about Central Otago

It was an excellent experience with staff and captain Darren being extremely friendly and helpful. The scenic view was amazing and it was a fantastic experience. We will definitely be back.

The adrenaline mixed with spectacular scenery and a very informative guide was the perfect recipe for a New Zealand experience. It’s my second time and I would definitely do it again!

Such a fun thrilling experience. Would definitely recommend doing this Shotover ride to anyone travelling to QT.

Had a blast, loved every minute especially the spins and thrill as we went in the canals.

Gr8 fun. Comfy seats too. Wear a beannie as can get quite cold plus sunnies
