We went on the Blackwater Rafting Compay's 'Black Abyss Tour' in Mar 08. Even tho' the water was 'low' it was awesome! 5 hours of underground adventure! I did a lot of reseach, and this was the tour in Waitomo that seemed to give the most 'bang' for the buck. The only downside for us (besides the cost) was there were 9 of us in our group--it would have been much more enjoyable with a smaller group. Here's a tip: don't drink a lot of coffee before you go. 5 hours is a long time in a thick, cumbersome, wetsuit apparatus with no bathroom nearby, and they really frown on...um...the 'alternative'.
