I wish I had some pictures of my white water rafting adventures, but I didn't want to worry about having a camera on me. The scariest part about the rafting isn't the rapids, it's the ride to get to the rapids. The bus winds up and down this narrow road with hairpin turns. One guy got so nervous on the ride there that he started having an asthma attack and decided he couldn't go rafting on the Shotover River. He wanted to be driven back. They tried to tell him that he might be less nervous going down the rapids than experiencing the trip back on the bus. As I recall the rapids are mostly level 2 and 3, with maybe one level 4 if the water is high.

An experience of a life time. From the death defying ride on the edge of a cliff in a van to get to the raft launch to the 4s and 5s rapids, then the tunnel of pitch black just to come out on the other side and drop what seems like 20 feet down a rapid! Totally worth the anxiety I silently had on the inside. You must go if you have the chance!
