      Beat all my expectations!
      Had an amazing time canyoning, crawling under waterfalls, going through a little cave, jumping in rivers, climbing up rocks, lots of fun! Thank you to our instructor Rhys for making it so!

      Give Andy a pay rise!!
      Firstly Andy is a superstar. Down to earth, knowledgeable and a great guide. As a group of 7, we did the Gorge Scrambling/ Canyoning which was fun and challenging. The river was fast flowing (we went in winter) and cold, but the wet suits supplied were more than adequate. Equipment was generally good. Highly recommend for a group of friends

      Amazing guide Andy - Fantastic experience and perfect for groups of friends etc. Absolutely stunning scenery - Must do!
      Our Blue Ocean adventure was amazing - seven of us went as part of a short stag weekend in Cardiff and it was a huge highlight of our trip Andy was a fantastic host and guide, taking us through the stunning welsh landscape keeping us entertained, safe but also keeping the adrenaline pumping - a thoroughly memorable and enjoyable experience. You will get to see the gorges/waterfalls/rivers etc from a totally unique perspective packed with natural beauty and history. This is no hike, it will definitely stretch you a bit as you climb, crawl and more but you won’t regret it. Totally worth it and Andy really made our trip one to remember!

      Great experience, helps to overcome fears and a great time with family.
      We had a super time gorge walking and having Andy as a great guide where we felt safe at all times. Kids that don't get out to the country much or exercise, absolutely loved how we explored, jumping into rivers, climbing, swimming and our overcoming some personal fears of claustrophobia in some caves. The family loved it and want to do it again soon!

      Awful customer service
      Terrible customer service when arranging the activities and asking questions, rude responses. Tried to rebook as it was in the middle of a named storm, making it dangerous for us to travel there. Blunt response saying they weren't going to rebook us. Would not recommend this company.

      Gorge Scrambling in Brecon Beacons
      Had a great few hours being guided by the two Rhys's through some beautiful river and waterfall sequences. They were very reassuring and supportive throughout. Quite a decent level of challenge and certainly better if you have a moderate level of fitness, but they gave the option to bypass anything that concerned a member of the group. From crawling behind waterfalls, to leaping into pools, to sliding down natural tunnels in the rock, to shimming along the pillar of a ruined bridge, we got to do things we hadn't tried before. Well worth a trip if you like a bit of adventure!

      Gorge scrambling with Rhys
      Rhys was a superbly enthusiastic and knowledgeable (and also encouraging) guide. We felt completely reassured all the time and had a great fun on the way around. I would recommend Blue Ocean and Rhys to anyone

      Great fun with a big group!
      We did canyoneering with Blue Ocean Activities and were lucky enough to have Andy as our main guide, with Neil following behind. We were a large group of 15 guys on a stag weekend. Andy handled the group really well; he made us feel safe, gave clear instructions, threw in lots of humour, and made sure we had lots of fun! Regarding the activity itself: the area is beautiful, the activity is really fun! Would reccomend!

      Canyoning, a great day out
      My son and I enjoyed it immensely, great fun. The mark of a great experience for me is when your 12 year old takes his head out of his phone in the evening to actually converse and laugh about the days events. Excellent day. Thank you

    This was a fantastic afternoon. Fun for our son and just the right level of challenge for us. A good mix of scary bits and fun bits! Our instructor, Andy, was very experienced, knowledgable and friendly and we felt really safe with him the whole time. I would recommend this to other families and groups as a great bonding session and a really good way to enjoy some of the beautiful scenery.

    Myself, my husband and my 15 year old daughter went gorge scrambling with Drock as our instructor. We had an amazing time and I would highly recommend to anyone who wants to try something different. Drock was fantastic, he was very encouraging, made it fun and made us all feel safe at the same time. All around fantastic.

    The experience was immense, the guide and event host was superb. Careful, considerate and mindful of those participating.

    I am a weak swimmer so our guide was very aware and made sure I was given the attention at each part of the climb and jump.

    Exceptional service and a great activity. Highly recommend this organisation and the activities on offer

    Absolutely amazing experience, probably one of the best days out with the family we've had. Andy our guide was brilliant from start to finish, giving confidence to the kids who were a little nervous at the start and even encouraging my wife to participate when her plan was to sit in the car reading a book, by the end she was crawling through waterfalls and jumping into pools. Honestly can't say enough about this fantastic experience, we'll definitely be booking again in the new year.

    Rhys our instructor was amazing from start to finish. Supported every member our group.... from the confident to the nervous. Always patient and really enthusiastic.
    This event was awesome! From the early morning cold water 'shocker' entrance to the high 'Looney Leap' at the end. The scramble was a mixture of everything, good swims, jumps, bouldering, climbs and some challenging obstacles of tight and dark spaces. But fear not; the instructions and motivation that Rhys provided was fantastic. Literally want to do it again this afternoon! 5 star

    Andy and Rhys are a cracking set of guides around the beautiful Afán Forest walking spot of Waterfall Country. Would highly recommend these pair to guide you through the rivers and waterfalls of south wales. Cliff jumping, cliff scrambling and crawling through water filled holes. Loved every second of it!

    Great day out. Andy the guide was brilliant, encouraging but not pushy you could tell he loved his job and who could blame him. Felt a bit scared at times but that’s part of the experience. Some great jumps, climbed up waterfalls, scaled cliffs, climbed through tunnels and slid down one. Very tiring by the end but great experience and definitely would book again.

    Adventurous group day out - non stop fun and laughter

    I originally had this booked with my friends and partners for my birthday.
    The excitement was unreal after watching instagram videos on their page.

    Last minute one of my friends dropped out and I managed to convince my 64 year old dad to come with me as it was also Father’s Day.

    The best experience had by everyone! My dad smiled like a Cheshire Cat all day!
    Our instructor Dyfed was absolutely tremendous. There was one bit I struggled with coming down a slope in the cave where I had no upper strength to hold my body weight! But there was Dyfed helping me out of the hole and making sure I was okay every step of the way.

    I would recommend that you would need to be slightly active to have the fitness levels of swimming and walking to each place. But even if you are struggling there is options of resting at sitting some jumps out to recover.

    Was always options to do stuff you wasn’t comfortable with , but everyone enjoyed pushing themselves to the adrenaline limit!

    Can’t wait to rebook for this summer again! 🤘🏼

    Had a great time gorge scrambling on my stag do. Kitty was a great guide, kept the mood nice and relaxed and put up with a group of hungover lads, was great at reassuring the less adventurous members of our group. 100% would do again, freezing cold water = great hangover cure!

    Absolutely amazing activity. Lasted about 3 hours. Jumping into crystal clear waters and off waterfalls. My teenage kids absolutely loved it too. Scenery was stunning. Had to scramble into tiny caves which I was dreading but it was all good. Some in the group didn’t fancy some challenges (cave or the high jumps) and they were absolutely fine to sit them out. Absolutely knackered now I’m home. Need to be moderate fit for this activity but not excessively.
