We started at Blue cliffs carpark and walked 8 hours to Port Craig,one night at port craig lodge, and then 5.5 hours along old rail way track to the Wairaurahiri river, we stayed at the doc hut right beside the river, Paul picked us up and took us up the river across lake Hauoko and transported us right back to our vehicle. Paul was great,. really recommend this jet boat ride,the river is beautiful and Paul was a great guide. Many thanks.
Please note you can do the walk right to the Wairauhiri river and jet boat back out with out going though the humpridge office, there are three doc huts that you can stay at, school house at port craig, Percy vern viaduct and the hut at right at the river. For a tramp for those on a budget who also want a boat ride the doc huts are perfect. It is also a long walk to port craig 22km and took us 8 hours, not a difficult walk but very long!! The tramp from Port Craig to river is 16km very flat and takes in the amazing viaducts. Thanks Paul a great trip:)
