Underwater Rafting

Half Day

Price from £87 per person

Join your guide at The Charleston Hotel to commence an Underworld Rafting tour. Participants are fitted out with designer wetsuits, wetsuit socks, boots, gloves and helmet at the Charleston base before boarding a courtesy coach for a transfer to The Nile River Rainforest Train for transport through the primeval rainforest and towering limestone cliffs of the Nile River Canyon. A short climb is required to enter the enormous Nile River Cave System where you meander through a calcitic paradise of stalactites and stalagmites in the upper dry levels of the cave. Down in the lower active levels of the Cave, there is a slow moving underground river on which you float in your tube using only the natural light of a simply awe inspiring display of glowworms for navigation. You emerge from the cave into a remote and untouched world before leaving its tranquillity for the rushing bubbling waters of the low grade Nile River Rapids.

Please note: Water confidence is required for this trip.
Inclusions: Hotel pick up/drop off from Westport accommodation.
