Adventure Waikato
Safety

We are OutdoorsMark Safety certified.

We are proactive in our safety philosophy – we have an independent audit, by Project Adventure, each year, checking all equipment and rope challenges.

All guiding staff hold First Aid certificates and all activities have RAMS reports (Risk Analysis and Management Systems).

Instructors manning abseil sites, the flying fox and other rope challenges are trained by MSC (Mountain safety council ) and hold a NZOIA (NZ outdoor instructors association) qualification.

Due to the nature of our takeoff point, a weight restriction of 120kg applies to our Flying Fox activity.

For your health and safety at Adventure Waikato PLEASE CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING: in order to make your visit to Adventure Waikato a safe and pleasurable one, we ask that you consider any condition you may have-medical, physical or mental, which may unduly affect your safe participation in the activities you are about to do (eg.heart disease, asthma, diabetes, allergic reaction, anxiety syndrome or any other not listed here).

We ask you to discuss this with us, or your doctor, if you are in any doubt of your suitability to participate in our activities. We remind you that if you are currently taking any special medication that you bring adequate supply. We carry only standard first aid kits.

Please follow the instructions of your guide at all times and do not, knowingly, put yourself at risk (or any other person or persons) by your deliberate actions.

We reserve the right to ask you to discontinue the activity and/or to leave the property where your behavior may jeopardize your own safety or that of the instructors and other participants.

You require suitable outdoor footwear at least two layers of clothing and wet weather gear where rain threatens. We recommend you bring a change of clothes and footwear. If doing the Swamp crossing or glowworm cave, bring old clothes – you will get muddy!

All details you discuss with us are held in confidence.
