Let me start with I am petrified of heights and thanks to the support of our wonderful, talented, and experienced guide Connor, this is probably one of the most amazing and memorable experiences in my life. Canyoning and abseiling was one of the main things on my daughter's bucket lists of things to do while in New Zealand and I... More

We had a great time on this canyoning adventure! Cam & the guides (Elise & Connor?) were excellent & made sure we had lots of fun, while also focussing on safety. The trip was professionally organised & well equipped. Beautiful scenery, friendly eels, nice lunch provided. Highly recommended!

To say that this trip was amazing in an understatement! Javier was fantastic as a guide and the scenery was out of this world! Felt safe the whole time, great training to start the day off and loved every minute of it. You do have to work for this though…be ready for about a 30-45 minute hike up the canyon... More

Went on the Piha full day excursion and it was quite the adventure. You start first rappelling down small waterfalls and each drop gets more exciting with the climax rappelling through a waterfall. I would say that at least an average level of fitness is required as the climb up to the top of the falls with wet suits on... More

We were lucky enough to go canyoning with AWOL with only three in our group. Havier (Sorry if that's wrong dude) was great fun and everyone was at ease. The trip is just the right length and I would recommend it to anyone!

Thanks AWOL & our guide Javier for an awesome day in the stunning waterfalls near Piha. Everything ran so smoothely, always felt safe and had a blast. This was my 2nd time with these guys and they still rock. Can't wait for next time!!!

Conor was our guide - Competent, professional, affable & eager to ensure we (3 outgoing fellas) had the most suitable experience and level of difficulty for our needs - he more than managed! An incredible day; incredible! Scaling down waterfalls in all manner of styles - Backwards, sliding, freestyle, abseil, controlled & walking through river streams and jungle in between... More

Had an amazing day canyoning at the Blue Canyon. Some unbelievable jumps and abseiling make this experience one not to forget! The guide Javier was great and made the trip even more enjoyable, whilst ensuring that safety standards are maintained throughout. Not only is the activity awesome, the scenery and the waterfalls are fantastic! Would definitely reccommend if you are... More

First of all they were very professional with their work, and anyone who has done this kind of activity knows how important that is. Secondly they made the day very enjoyable for the whole group by being organised and friendly and Thirdly the trip itself was both beautiful and exciting in the forest near Piha beach. Highly recommended! Thanks Cam... More

Great day, excellent fun. Some great jumps, slides and abseiling. The guides were very experienced and knew what they were doing (which is important when they are hooking you up to abseil over a waterfall). The canyon is in a beautiful setting too.
