Ultimate Descents New Zealand

38 Waller Street, Murchison

We are a 100% New Zealand owned and operate rafting company.
We started in 1984, and Ultimate Descents New Zealand is the longest operating and most experienced white water rafting company in the top half and West Coast of the South Island, New Zealand.
We really enjoy seeing people have a good time and hardly a day goes by that we don‘t remind ourselves just what great jobs we have! Safety whilst having fun is our main priority and handled with professionalism from our highly qualified guides, giving you the client, the feeling of being well looked after.
You‘ll find our innovative approach to the river running refreshing and our talented team of river guides fun to be with. We’re proud to have introduced people from around the world to the magic of river travel and when you join our trips you’re not just a customer, you’re part of our team.
With its vast mountainous wilderness, the South Island contains the majority of New Zealand‘s white water rivers, from raging mountain torrents to deep tranquil pools; the moods can be as diverse as the rivers are beautiful. Our base of operations is located in the rural town of Murchison, a town surrounded by mountains and rivers, this gives us easy access to our daily white water adventures. Meaning no long bus journeys and transfers, we take all the responsibility for each trip and the logistics of running them.
The main rivers we commercially-run are Buller River, Karamea River, Mokihinui River, Clarence River, Maruia River and Mangles River.
And as to other rivers….. well if you are coming to play, then here’s what you can expect to find within 30 minutes outside of Murchison, Matiri River, Matakitaki River, Glenroy River, Owen River, Gowan River to name a few. All these rivers are made up of many craftable sections.
