Winter in Perth brings the excitement of white water rafting with Rivergods. Half-day trips are on grade two-three rapids through the scenic Avon Valley.

Thrill seekers can enjoy the full day on the big rapids (grade three-four) of the Murray River. An hour and a half south of Perth, this majestic river flows through tranquil jarrah forest before plunging into white water rapids with names like “Timewarp” and “Termination”. All equipment is provided, no experience is required, just be ready to have fun and get wet! Rafting season runs June to October.

Sea kayaking with Rivergods is the perfect way to get a unique and close-up view of Western Australia’s amazing coastal scenery and wildlife. Using stable double kayaks that are easy to paddle, Rivergods Paddle Adventures offer full day trips to Seal and Penguin Islands in the Shoalwater Marine Park from September to June. Explore the beaches of this haven for dolphins, sea lions, Little Penguins and migratory birds. Swim, snorkel, watch the penguin feeding, enjoy a picnic and walk the nature trails.

For those seeking a winter escape, five-day tours in the remote and isolated World Heritage area of Shark Bay operate April to September. Paddling the calm shallow waters, you will encounter the famous Monkey Mia dolphins, as well as dugongs, turtles, fish and rays, before camping on the beaches under clear starry skies.
Rivergods also hire canoes and kayaks, organise group events and help you to explore the great outdoors.
