“Gorge walking”

Reviewed 22 October 2013

I booked the Gorge Walk through the recommendation of my 11 year old who had done this event through her school residential trip. 11 family friends came consisting of 4 adults and 7 kids ranging from 9 years old to 14 yrs. We were kitted up with double layers of wetsuit, jacket and boyancy aid and helmet. Luke & Hayden were brilliant instructors, insulting and encouraging us along the way, the kids showed no fear and lept into the cold October river with a whoop. Scrambling through the wormhole, diving under sunked logs, being held under waterfalls, crawling on hands and knees behind waterfalls then leaping into the waterpit, our kids didn't even bat an eyelid when it came to the 18ft leap into deep churning water. Terrifying, exhilirating, amazing and wow do I ache, but would def recommend it. You need to be a strong swimmer in some parts and older adults can do the dive into the hell hole, you can turn your ankle, crush your knees, fall over, smash your fingernails, hit rocks and get very very wet, but hey, you only live once! RECOMMENDED. The only thing to remember is there's no loo breaks and nothing to snack on drink during the whole day, so bring an enormous lunch/soup once you finish, as you're famished at the end of the day.

After calling up last minute to book 10 of my friends for renting kayaks and canoes i was impressed how friendly the lady on the phone was, fitting us in no problem! We arrived to a warm reception from the staff, checking us in and sorting us out with paddles and buoyancy aids very quickly. The stretch of water we paddled as perfect for novices, and we had a great time getting soaking wet, took us about 2 hours which was perfect for an afternoon activity. We were picked up from the check point quickly after a great afternoon out! Thanks to everyone at black mountan activities!

This acitivity place gave us the freedom to pick and chose our activities and go at our leisure. Half the group did kayaking and came back tired but very impressed and half of us (myself included) hired canoes.

The canoe hire was wonderful as we were left to our own devices to go ahead, and this felt like a very trusting organisation. We also had left our car keys without batting much of an eyelid...

The company worked a very smooth operation, slick, straight-talking and for all ages, I would recommend them to all.

We did the archery last October, We went during the week and were the only two people doing that session. As there was only two of us, we were continuously firing arrows, which was great fun. The instructor came up with lots of fun games and tailored them to our ability, neither of us were very good but still has a great time. We would definitely do it again.
