It's hard to believe you're only 40 minutes from Auckland city. The scenery is beautiful and the experience exhilarating. Cam is a patient and knowledgable guide whose reassuring coaxing could get the most fearful person to jump off a cliff. I will be back again.

I loved this experience so much, Cam is such a fun person, he really helps you feel confident and safe. I am in Auckland for work and I cant do much, but this trip makes me feel like I am getting to know a bit of new Zealand and getting out of the city. He picks you up from the... More

A must do. Loved every min of it, maybe except the upslope part... Trekked upslope for about half hour, beautiful scenery and into nature. Abseiling down cliffs and waterfalls, jumping into pools, lovely experience.

Cam picked us up from the Sky Tower and took me and my friend for the full day trip. We had a great time and appreciated the training from Cam before we began our descent. I can't say enough good things about Cam's professionalism and patience with us. A must-do for locals and visitors alike.

It was a great adventure. Initially I did not dare to make the jumps, but seeing how much fun it was for others, I also tried and it was surprisingly enjoyable! Highly recommended if you like abseiling too. However, you do need a moderate level of fitness to get through the hikes and trekking across the forest.

I have done a few canyoning trips in the UK and NZ and most have been good, the Blue Line however was the best I have done so far!! Had an awesome guide 'Javier' who gave great guidance on what to do and tailored it for the individuals within the group based on their ability. The Blue Line option is... More

My husband is 60 years old and bikes in 200 mile events. I am 58 years old, bikes 1 1/2 miles up small hills to work and I don't exercise. The rest of our group were 2 women and 1 man under 35 years old. Our guide, Javier(his name may have been Xavier), was excellent and very patient. He could... More

My sister Tricia who had already taken the AWOL Canyoning was so sure we would have an unforgettable experience as a family visiting New Zealand for the first time from Manila. My husband Patrick and I (48) with our 2 sons Josh (20) Jigs (17) and nephew Jacob (18) and sis (43) were collected from Auckland downtown- together with a... More

After going on this once a couple of years ago, I wanted to share the experience with visiting family. So after convincing my sister and brother-in-law ("This is not on my bucket list"), we had with us my son and two nephews, ages 17 to just-turned-20. None of us were fitness buffs and no one else had done any canyoning,... More
