Don't be fooled! Blackwater Rafting is not like white water rafting. It's much gentler and you use car inner tubes, not white water rafts. Allow 4 hours for this trip (approx 2 hours underground).
All Blackwater Rafting trips at Waitomo include walking and wading, as well as swimming and tubing. A wide range of people can do it, even down to 12-year-olds. Your wetsuit gives you lots of flotation. You will however get wet!
