The Waimakariri River, or the Waimak as it is called by the locals, was named by a native New Zealand Maori tribe meaning "River of Cold Rushing Water". The Waimak travels a total distance of 190 kilometers - from its birthplace in the rugged Southern Alps through steep rock faces and thick native forest out to the Pacific Ocean. The crystal clear waters of the river often allow views of the salmon and rainbow/brown trout. The Waimak is one of the most jet boated rivers in New Zealand and you will quickly understand why, as the spectacular scenery unfolds before you.
