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 and often hair raising 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 lumbering flat bottom work horse of yesteryear.

Again now, the Adventurer II offers that experience in braving 239 rapids as the Rhine of New Zealand snakes to the sea.
