Meet The Team

Many of our guides work continual summers, departing during the quieter months to guide white water rafting in other parts of the world, returning each summer season to Queenstown. They are passionate about their jobs and love taking people from all over the world to their "office" on the stunning rivers of New Zealand. Guides are employed not only for their guiding and water skills, but their personality so they tend to be great story tellers and entertainers.
