Rafting in Makhunceti
One of the easiest, shortest, still most popular whitewater rafting routes on the Black Sea coast of Georgia. The route runs along the River Adjaristskali, which is the main waterway of the Autonomous Republic of Adjara, located in the west part of Georgia.
Rafting starts in the same-name village of Makhuntseti, located 30 km away from the center of Batumi. Nearby the starting point of the route is the famous 54-meter high Makhuntseti waterfall, a medieval arch bridge, as well as the aqueduct of the Adjara Hydroelectric Power Station.
There are several companies operating on this route, which have no relation to “GeTur: Rafting and Travel in Georgia”. The qualifications of their guides are unknown to us, and they have nothing to do with us. If there is any doubt that it’s a representative of our company, call the numbers indicated on the site, we do not have other phone numbers.
Safety during rafting tours:
The raft is navigated by a qualified guide who has been trained in accordance with the international methodology of the International Rafting Federation (IRF), including dealing with extreme situations.
The guide has run along the route multiple times and knows all the potential hazards that might be faced on the water.
Every guest is equipped with necessary protective and safety gear, such as helmet, life jacket, and wetsuit.
Before the run starts, a safety briefing is held which explains in detail what can or cannot be done on the boat, how the whole process works, and how to act in emergency situations.

The duration of the route in spring and early summer is about 5 kilometers, at this time of year it’s a dynamic ride on fast-flowing water, with several exciting rapids. During this period we equip all our guests with wetsuits.
Rafting duration in July, August, September, and also in winter is 3 kilometers. Due to the low water level in the river, the route is significantly simplified. At some points, it becomes impossible to pass through the river. Rafting becomes available even for children over 6 years old, as there are almost no rapids along the way. The water temperature in summer is 16-20 degrees.
Time on the water 40 minutes.
40 USD per group up to 3 guests

Один маршрут - два впечатления. Май весна - река ураган, дух захватывает. Август, воды нет, идем пешком, но хоть покупаться можно ))) Ребята, теперь я буду вас слушать, приеду летом, не буду больше жадничать - поеду на Риони )
День рожденья удался! С погодой не повезло, но как оказалось, если осенью идет дождь, то в реке есть вода. Сергей - спасибо, впечатления на всю жизнь и самое главное, вы так и не рассказали, как можно быть таким спокойным??? ))
Ребята из GeTUR профи, два года назад в Махунцети они делали нам сплав, но теперь ЭТОЙ КОМПАНИИ ТАМ НЕТ, там работает кто-то другой.
Хорошо остался телефон и смогли связаться.
