Cave Rafting in Greymouth PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 12 December 2006

Today we are going on a cave-rafting adventure with WildWest Adventure.

The tour goes through the intriguing dragon caves of Greymouth and lasts for approximately 5 hours, including the transfer there and back to the cave.

The water can get quite cold but with several layers of wetsuit on,  we turn out to be fine most of the time. Some boots and helmets with lights attached to them are also provided to facilitate the walk in the cave.


After a 30-minute warm-up walk through the forest, it's time for some cave-rafting. The cave is amazing and its very nature implies that we have to sometimes slide, crawl in, drift along or climb to keep on moving deeper into the dark.


The second and final section of the cave being half under water, we are given some tubes to drift along and make our way to the end of the cave. With our lights turned off, we are able to contemplate the beautiful worm gloves in the dark of the cave.


The trip ends through the tunnel of love, a narrow sometimes scary tunnel that leads to the exit of the cave.

Once back at the base,  we finish off the tour in a hot spa with some drinks and muffins while watching the photos of our trip on a TV screen above our heads. What a life!
