Saturday 25 February 2023


Bridge to Nowhere Jet Boat Tour, Bush Walk and 2 + hours of Canoeing

Adults $190
Children $90

Children 7 to 15
(Children must be 7 or older)

Be prepared for a full on day of adventure with this tour! From Pipiriki you’ll jet the Whanganui River to Mangapurua Landing and then walk 40 minutes through the native bush to find the Bridge to Nowhere. Bring a picnic lunch to have at the Bridge and enjoy tales from your guide of the historic Mangapurua Valley and its pioneering people. You’ll then wander back to the river, to join the jet boat that will take you to the next part of your adventure – canoeing back down the Whanganui River to Pipiriki After receiving full paddling instructions and a safety brief, you’ll be able to board your canoe. Leave the rest of the world behind and experience the peace and tranquility as you drift back down the river. We’ll leave it up to you to stop and explore points of interest along the way – there is no rush, it’s your day to explore. Not much has changed on the River over the years, except for the odd jet boat or two, so you’ll get an appreciation of just how things must have been on the Whanganui River centuries ago.
