Rafting is great fun. Three 2nd hand rafts "Pinky", "Tiny" and the "Yellow Submarine" have been purchased by staff and students in the Electrical Engineering department since 1991 and maintained (not in work hours of course) for "academic field" trips. Trips have included the Hurunui river, Waimakiriri, Taipo, Clarence, Rangitata, Buller and the rivers in the Queenstown area. Other planned trips include the Karamea river in Northwest Nelson (Kahurangi National Park).
