*** Please note that due to Covid-19 and lack of tourism, the adventure caving is not currently available. We hope it will become available again for Winter 2022 ***

Experience 1: Underground Rafting through Glowworm Cave

On this adventure you will meet your guide at the Underworld Adventure Center in Charleston, who will equip you with wet suits, wet suit socks, boots, gloves and helmets. Dressed ready for your adventure, a short drive and the Nile River Rainforest Train will take you into the stunning West Coast Rainforest with towering limestone cliffs that create a magical backdrop for your adventure.

A short walk leads to the cave entrances high above the Nile River. You will enter a hidden subterranean world leaving the daylight behind to explore a calcite paradise of stalactites and stalagmites, cross huge chambers, follow a maze of passages and wander through the heart of an ancient multi-leveled cave system. Enriched with illustrations, explanations and stories you will connect to the fragile precious world you explore and descend to the bottom level of the cave where the water guides you to a magical galaxy of glow-worms.

Astounded by this underground night sky, you will slowly float on an underground river to emerge back into daylight having used only the natural light of the awe inspiring display of glow worms as navigation.

You leave this special place floating in your tube down the fun gentle rapids of the Waitakere / Nile River surrounded by the lush rain forest.  Returning with the Rainforest Train back to Charleston this special hidden place stays behind but the memories will stay for a long time.

Allow 4 hours

Experience 2: Adventure Caving

‘Adventure Caving’ is full on expedition style caving that takes you into the untamed wilderness of the Te Tahi cave system. Fully equipped with harnesses, lights, helmets, wetsuits your adventure begins in our base in Charleston. Te Tahi Cave is a short drive on a remote road into the West Coast Wilderness. Following practice, your adventure begins with a 130 ft abseil down a breath-taking shaft. The last of daylight fades as you begin to scramble through a dark abyss of passages deep below. You will scramble, crawl and abseil to reach the active waterways.

A rushing stream-way awaits where you will chimney, bridge and climb waterfalls to traverse.  You will be surrounded by the sound and smell in an overwhelmingly exciting and powerful cave atmosphere.  On wriggling through the last fun filled squeeze, the cave opens up to a welcoming large series of chambers with one final climb to daylight and a well-hidden exit.

This is definitely the right adventure for fit capable adventurers who have a real desire for a complete caving experience in a sporty cave, one impossible to experience without expert guidance. All equipment is provided including yummy power snacks and your own personalized photographic image set free taken for you of your adventure.

Allow 5 hours

Why is this Chuffed Worthy?

This is off the beaten track epic adventure. Unfortunately though – for the time being there arn’t enough visitors on the West Coast. We hope the Adventure Caving will re-open as visitors return to the West Coast.

An Experienced raft guide will take you down the river and stop wherever you think looks best to cast your line. Even try some casting from the raft for those hard to get places.

Included in the cost for a full day of fishing on the river (for up to three anglers) is a full picnic lunch/refreshments, a raft as your transportation downstream with one of our experienced rafting guides, a lifejacket, plus a wetsuit and helmet if required.
