We went Tidal Bore Rafting with Bara in late September. We called in the morning and were told we could ride the same day, with a departure at 6pm in the evening with one of the least extreme tides. We received a very friendly welcome...More

The rafting part of the trip was an adventure. Peter did his best to take us on a wild ride. I would say, for our group it was a little too long. After you have been tossed around the boat and swamped for the first...More

Thanks for the feedback, we’re sorry to hear your experience did not meet expectations. We offer two tour lengths to do our best to allow different amounts of river time, the longer tour can be a real workout! The ramp works at low tide as...More

This experience really is like no other, we are so happy you selected us as your guide. Hopefully we will see you again some day, the river can have a ‘magnetic’ effect on people!

You must go to Bara! There are probably 3 or 4 outfits on the river, Bara is the newest - Jeff the owner and Peter the guide both take out tours on their two rafts. Very low key place, but they know their way around...More

This was brilliant. Peter was one of the most exceptional guides I have ever had the pleasure to go on a tour with. The mud sliding at the start was just brilliant. The wave/bore chasing brilliant. As another review said, there were a number of...More

Thanks for the review. We hope that all our clients feel the same personalized experience you had. We often feel like our smaller size allows for an authentic east coast experience, which is just the way we want it.
