    I felt so sorry for the lady who said she didn't like the experience because of the splash. Splashing is not only a good way to bond with other participants (to be honest, rowing and the view alone is too boring for a 4 hours ride), it is also essential to keep us from dehydrated under the hot sun. maybe those who doesn't want to be splashed should opt for some calmer river cruise instead.

What To Expect

The Hsiukuluan River provides some of Taiwan's best rafting, challenging participants with a range of rapids to navigate. The rapids are a reasonable level for beginners, but swift enough to provide a thrill. The varied route will have you transitioning between paddling ferociously, holding tight as you plunge down a rapid and sitting back to appreciate the spectacular scenery you're passing through. You'll journey through rocky ravines with a backdrop of impressive mountainous scenery before ending on the coast of the Pacific Ocean. Take your pick of raft types for varying degrees of comfort and excitement! Run by a company with years of experience and led by a friendly professional instructor, safety is paramount—but they don't skimp on the fun!

    I signed up with the expectation of an intense workout in beautiful surroundings. I was disappointed. Our tour of 3 rafts were accompanied by 2 speedboats. Soon after boarding the raft, it was apparent that the vast majority of participants is not physically fit and mentally alert enough to navigate the course on their own, and the speedboats to push or pull the rafts downstream. Most of the participants were much more adapt at water fights than paddling, and proceeded to splash each other with water the whole 4 hours. The organisers joined in the splashing by revving the enginees of the speedboats, heading straight for the rafts, and turning just before collision. As a result I was (unnecessarily) freezing cold the whole way. All in all I paddled at most for 20 minutes throughout the 4 hours, and didn't even get to enjoy the scenery in peace due to the constant water fights. I am giving it 3 stars because it is probably a good activity if you don't mind getting very wet and not being able to get a good without. But if you want to actually raft, consider organising your own tour.

    Weather was bad and river low but we had a lot of fun ! We loved this rafting experience in Taiwan.

    The activity was canceled one day before because there were not enough people joining the tour. I was informed of the cancelation and am happy with the service

    We had an incredible time white water rafting! None of the guides spoke English, but we were able to communicate with body language and simple words. The safety video was available in English so we felt prepared before we got on the boat.

    Journey was very long to the river. Rapid is not strong and needed aid of speed boats. Not recommended.

    There was a mix-up with the meeting time, which was moved up from 11am to 9am. But the rafting company was able to wait for us to arrive. The river journey itself is quite long - we set off abt 10.45am and finished abt 1pm. Altho the rapids in December are quite tame, there were moments of excitement, and the scenery is beautiful...our family enjoyed the experience. Wetsuits are provided, so it was not too cold. Lunch is also provided.

    It was an awesome experience! My friends and I loved it a lot! There were two other groups of Taiwanese visitors and a total of 13 of us. We had two rafts and two Instructors in speedboats who constantly checked if we were nearing rocks and helped push our raft to safety/ dragged our rafts if we got tired from paddling. Throughout the journey, we engaged in water fights with the other two groups - it was super fun! After reaching the end point, we had lunch and then ferried back to the starting point (40 to 50 mins of mountainous drive from the end point). The additional fee for transfer was well worth it - I don’t think I can drive on that road. Advices for people going on this: wear long sleeved tops and bottoms for the journey as there are rock formations along the way, and have some food before the activity. We were a bit hungry towards the end because we had breakfast at 7am and we only finished the activity and 1:30pm. Overall, I would strongly recommend this activity!

    A great activity to do amidst all the city life. although the streams were pretty calm, there were a few moments of thrill and the water fight really helped to make things more exciting:)

    I had an amazing time on this water rafting tour. The scenery is really beautiful and being with a bunch of strangers water fighting is fun. The reviews on klook did not prepare me for what this trip entails. First of all the whole experience was in Chinese. A woman from the water rafting called me the day before the trip to let me know that the shuttle was going to pick me up from my hostel and the time has changed to 9 am. I received text messages from them in chinese about what to bring and how to dress. The meeting place is very far from hualien about an hour drive. Left hualien around 9:30 after picking up some people and got there around 11. There was a lot of talking and safety videos so started actually water rafting around 12 maybe. Ended around 2 and they provided us with lunch and got back to my hostel around 4. So if you are going to go on this bring long sleeves, long pants, and waterproof shoes that won't slip off. They have shoes you can rent too. Part 1/2
