Wayne's Waiatoto River Safari

Cruise in Haast

These two-hour river cruises offer an exhilarating taste of World Heritage wilderness. Knowledgeable operators point out bird life and features of the landscape as the jetboat buzzes past areas otherwise only accessible by helicopter. Birds chatter, ducks race alongside the boat, and there's the occasional white-knuckle rapid on this generally gentle-paced journey. The base is 20km southwest of Haast Junction.
