Adventure tour with kids

We are a family with 2 kids age 12 and 13. I have been looking at the more adventurous tours of the caves as my kids are super fit gymnasts and are keen to do rock climbing,black water tubing and absailing. However, they both weigh just over 30 kg which is less than the weight requirements or age limits with most companies. Any suggestions of companies that would be happy to accommodate a physically active family that don't quite fit some of the suggested parameters but don't want a passive boating/ walking experience?

Smaller operators might be more flexible about policy. This outfit might be good in Waitomo: http://www.greenglow.co.nz/401/72023.html They do individual tours for families so they can tailor something to fit.

Paul at Greenglow isn't set up to do black water tubing, but has rock climbing, absailing, cave exploring. He has kids of his own so probably has gear to fit yours. I can highly recommend him, as this was the highlight of our North Island trip. If one of you is a photographer, he can get some awesome shots of your family in the cave if you bring your camera.
