Legendary Black Water Rafting Company information
The Black Labyrinth tour (three hours, $125) involves floating in a wetsuit on an inner tube down a river that flows through Ruakuri Cave. The highlight is leaping off a small waterfall and then floating through a long, glowworm-covered passage. The trip ends with showers, soup and bagels in the cafe. The more adventurous Black Abyss tour (five hours, $225) includes a 35m abseil into Ruakuri Cave, a flying fox and more glowworms and tubing.
Recently launched, the Black Odyssey tour (four hours, $175) is a challenging dry caving adventure including flying foxes and negotiating high wires. Minimum ages apply for all tours, and there are 10% discounts if you prebook online.
