Full description
Your tour will begin as you are collected from the Wanaka Isite before being taken to the Clutha River. Once there, you'll be fully briefed on water safety before being kitted out in all of your "SUP" gear.

Soon you'll be out on the water testing out your balance on this swift-moving river, whilst preparing for the first of the many rapids ahead. The water is both clear and clean, so you won't need to worry if you end up going for a swim!

The tour consists of a 19 kilometer stretch with many fun spots, as you make your way to the Luggate Bridge. Once there you will also have time to stop along the way for a famous chocolate brownie. Once you've reach the final destination, you'll be transported back to the Wanaka Isite to reflect on the best parts of your trip.
