Looking for some info on canoeing the Clarence river. We are a party of 2 from Canada, experienced whitewater canoeists and are having difficulty gathering info on this river. Looking to do a 5+ day trip.
1. What is the best time of the year for canoeing the Clarence. We will be on the South Island between mid-January and the beginning of March 2014. As of now our plan is to paddle the river towards the end of February. Is it too late or will the river still be high enough?
2. Can you even hire canoes in the area, and does anyone offer a shuttle service? I have emailed a couple rafting companies but have not had any answers.
Thanks a lot.
