River Tubing A Must For Boulton

Born and raised in Suva, Rupert Boul­ton’s motto is life is for living.

He is the Marketing Officer at Toy­ota Tsusho South Sea Limited – Trading as Asco Motors. He is based in Suva.

The 42 year-old noticed prior to the pan­demic, that locals seemed to scoff at the idea of travelling locally.

“However, my late grandmother Frances Boulton used to always say, explore your own backyard before traveling the world.”

He recently went on adventure trip to at the Namosi Highlands, to experience what River Tubing Fiji had to of fer.

“Arriving in Navua there was a slight drizzle as we caught a taxi to the Danford homestead and base of River Tubing Fiji.

“So apparently the best time to go is after heavy rainfall as the river is alive and the rapids are stronger.

“We got on our longboats to ride up the Navua River, hiking through certain parts.

“Passing, cascading waterfalls and lush tropical rainforest like out of a movie scene.

“William and his crew, whose hospitality can only be described as the authentic Fiji experience had us swimming at the wa­terfall, having lunch riverside and tubing down rough rapids squealing in delight.

“At the end of the day we were all beam­ing from ear to ear from the experience.

“Highly recommend for friends and fam­ily as a bonding experience.”
