Black Water Rafting in Waitoma Caves
This was just amazing and one of the highlights of the trip. You get totally suited up in wetsuits, minerhats and inner rubber tubes. You climb down into some caves which are pitch dark and which have an icy river running through them. So you crawl, walk, climb, swim and float through the cave system. Jumping off waterfalls and switching the headlamps off when you get to the glowworm cave which light up the ceiling of the cave like stars at night. We did this with about eight other people and the craic in the caves was great. Again this ended with a hot shower and complimentary soup and bagels (yummy). We met a couple from Wicklow too, who'll be in Sydney when we are there which was cool.
