Why Choose Kiwi Cave Rafting


We started Kiwi Cave Rafting over 25 years ago with a belief that tours could be personalized, fun, adventurous, and exciting.

We fell in love with the area and made it our personal mission to share the wonders of Waitomo Caves with the world.

We are not a large corporate hiding behind a local brand but a small family run business that employs a few fun and enjoyable guides to help share the caves in a unique, personalized way to our customers.

Our philosophy is simple, bringing fun and enjoyment to the tour while we let the caves and glow worms speak for themselves.
