We did the Piha canyon full day with AWOL I didn't really know what we were in for going there, but what a day out. So much fun and so much adrenaline. A must do if you're in Auckland so worth the money.

My husband and I booked the canyoning trip through our cruise and it was amazing but a little bit scary. You are rappelling down a waterfall, swimming, hiking, caving and jumping into pools of water. If you are not physically fit I would not recommend this adventure since it is strenuous. We weren't quite sure what we were in for... More

I did the Full-day canyoning at Piha. Can't recommend it enough. You get to see the beautiful bush and waterfalls from an angle you wouldn't otherwise be able to. If you are tossing up between the full and half day - definitely do the full day! Our guide showed us where the half day started and you would miss out... More

I had no idea what I was in for but when I found out I was going to rappell down waterfalls I wanted to run far away as I have a fear of heights - But I am so glad I did it. It was so much fun and I immediately wanted to do it again! Elise our guide was... More

My teenage daughter and I went canyoning with AWOL while we were in Auckland and had an incredible time. Our guide was fantastic! She was outgoing and personable and she did a fantastic job of creating a fun, safe and supportive atmosphere. We repelled down cliffs and waterfalls (My daughter said she felt like rockstar as she repelled down the... More

I booked the full day Piha for a suprise for my fiancé 30th birthday. We both absolutely loved it. I wasn't too keen (not a fan of heights) but knew he would want me to go with him, and I had a blast. It was something truely amazing. Highly recommend you do this if in Auckland.

This was our first full day in New Zealand and we had a wonderful time! If you've never rappelled before, the guides are wonderful at instructing you how to do so. Javier and Conor were great! The waterfalls were gorgeous and incredibly fun to rappel down. The "washing machine" was awesome, I probably would have been laughing the whole way... More

I waited until the end of our trip to write this review. My husband and I joined Cam and 1 other adventurer on Christmas Eve day for a trip out to Piha Canyon. I initially booked the half day but switched to the full day which was totally worth it. The half day is just not enough time. They van... More

Basically repelling down canyon waterfalls. Absolutely a fantastic venture and you get your money's worth. The guides were extremely helpful, kind, courteous, and a lot of fun. The drive is a bit long but the activity was great. They are extremely safety conscious and have many rules in place that they adhere to loyally. They are extremely familiar with the... More
