Discover the History of the Whanganui River

100 years ago a small fleet of specially designed vessels just like the Adventurer II were the lifeline of the unique and picturesque Whanganui River.

The spectacular three day journey from Taumarunui to Wanganui was for thousands of tourists the highlight of their visit and there can be no equal to shooting a long twisting rapid in a flat bottom, tunnel hulled work horse of yesteryear.

Once again, the Adventurer II offers that experience in braving at least 135 rapids as the Rhine of New Zealand snakes its way to the sea.

Charter trips are available upon request.
