Hi there - read an ad in a cafe in Rotorua about a new duo kayaking business starting up. Does anyone know what its all about.
The guy (Uhl?) said he has the sole license for all present and future rafting/ sledging and kayaking of commercial operations for the Lower Kaituna Gorge, he reckons it is grade 4-5 in parts but ok for kayaks mainly. Apparently he has signed up a large deal with an asian tour operator and kiwi experinec to proved unlimited customers so work for guides will be fullon. The ad was asking for 3 paddlers to guide the trips who can are skilled enough to guide the boats through a narrow gorge filled with class 5, doing 7 trips a day on average. All the phone number slips were gone off the flier. Does any one have the details or contacts about it?
His description of the gorge and paddling requirement sounded good, does anyone still know it its on?
