Waiatoto River Safari

Discover the Haast UNESCO World Heritage Aera on a jet boat ride up the Waiatoto River.

On a Waiatoto River Safari you will travel to the top of the river and visit the Haast-Tokoeka Kiwi Sanctuary where you'll learn about the breeding program for the world's rarest kiwi.  

Take an optional stroll through the pristine native forest, enjoy complimentary morning tea and a sample of local whitebait, before the speedy trip back down the river, passing through the alpine fault line to the Tasman sea and the famous whitebait breeding grounds of the West Coast.
