The Whanganui River is considered unsafe for canoeing when the Level at Te Maire is above 80 cumecs (litres/second). Extreme care should also be exercised when the river is approaching 60 cumecs (litres/second) and the weather forecast is indicating rain in the Whanganui River headwaters.

The best idea is to call us on 0800 252 946 for an update on expected conditions before you leave home.

Your safety is important to us and we reserve the absolute right to not allow passengers to travel when we consider the river conditions or weather forecasts are unfavourable, or for any other reason, at our sole discretion. In the event that we consider the river to be unsafe for canoeing, we will fully refund any deposit or other payment made. If we consider the river to be safe for your trip and you choose not to go, we reserve the right to keep any deposit or payment made.
