Wayne, Russ & Bianca guided us throughout a fantastic, challenging day abseiling, zip-lining, sliding, jumping & hiking the canyon. They run a super-slick operation with their top skills, great equipment and great laid-back attitudes. Some of us had never abseiled before but felt very confident and totally at ease following their instructions. We were encouraged but never coerced into trying... More

We found this trip randomly online and took a chance to go do it. What an adventure! So much fun and the guides do all the hard parts and (ropes, and general safety) you get to do all the fun parts! The guides are experts. They will keep you safe and sounds while showing you an amazing time. They will... More

Thank you Russ and all your friendly team for an incredible day of adventure! The location is stunning and we felt safe trusting your rope work down the series of impressive waterfalls ( except for the last surprise!!!) The adrenaline was high for the jumps, but there was no pressure to do them and we were well supported! I would... More

Undoubtedly brilliant day out. If you are looking for adventure, you need to do this! I was in a group of four with Russell and Teri as guides and they were fantastic - you always feel safe but not babied. The abseils and zip lines are rigged one at a time and only the anchors stay at the end of... More

The whole trip was expertly organised and the guides were very friendly. I'm not really sure how to write this review without sounding like I'm raving but I'm not sure if I've ever had this much fun before. Between all the abseils, ziplines, pooljumps, etc, we were always doing something new and getting more challenging each time. Would definitely do... More

I went with a couple of work colleagues in winter and despite the cold water we had a great time and were kept very warm. Super friendly staff and the canyoning itself is amazing. They even dived into the cold water and found my go pro when it fell off on one of the big jumps.

We had Ryan and T as our guides and had the absolute best day up there in the canyon with them! This was by far the highlight of our trip to New Zealand. My husband and I are adventure/adrenaline seekers while on vacation and this activity will NOT disappoint, be prepared for a FULL day of adventure! The time will... More

This was the activity we were most looking forward to during our travels in NZ, small groups and not an overly commercialized experience. We were ready for some adventure! The communication and responsiveness of Russ and Wayne prior to our trip was great, they were very accommodating and made sure our group was in the know as they watched the... More
