Dunkeld River Bugs

"what a unique morning, now I can call myself a true bugger, brilliant fun !"

Why do it ?

Only 50 River Bugs exist in the world, of which we have 10. Nae Limits in Dunkeld, in partnership with Extreme Dreams were the very first company to bring this latest whitewater activity over from New Zealand, (the mecca for extreme sports). This action sport has never been offered to the public outside of New Zealand and Australia, until now!

River Bugs are a cross between a white water raft and an armchair! River bugs are a single person craft, made up of inflatable chambers behind and beside the user, (known as a "bugger"). These chambers ensure that you stay on top of the water, while extra thick padding turns colliding with rocks into a low-impact dodgems ride. After learning a few basic skills, you will be able to run the rapids, catch eddies, surf standing waves and even pirouette!

We will provide you with a wetsuit, buoyancy aid, helmet, booties, fins and special webbed gloves. The gloves are designed to help with paddling and steering the bugs. You will be taught how to operate the craft, ie, steering, safety, etc and then taken out to play on the river! If you only try one activity this year, make sure it is "River Bugging".

When can I do it?

April through to October

Anything else I should know?

River Bugging lasts half a day.
