Really enjoyed the trip out to Piha. There was lots of flexibility with what we wanted to do and how the trip was run. A great mix of activities during the canyoning trip. It catered well for guys with abseiling experience and guys that had never been before. Would definitely recommend this trip to others.

If rappelling down rock faces with waterfalls crashing around you appeals to your sense of adventure and wonder, sign up for the Piha full day. A few practical facts: -they pick up from downtown Auckland's Skytower if you do not have a car -they provide wet suits, instruction on rappelling (abseiling), food (for the full day trips) -a bit of...

The guys were professional and made the trip a lot of fun. It was the first time I had tried canyoning, but the guides gave competent instructions, and encouraged and helped anyone who was struggling. To top it off, the scenery was magnificent. Highly recommended.

I did the blue canyon trip on Sunday and it was totally awesome from start to finish! The guides were fantastic, really funny and made everyone feel like great friends straight away. The canyon itself is absolutely stunning, the perfect surrounding for such a brilliant activity. There were loads of jumps - some pretty high! And the abseiling was great... More

Me and my husband went for a half day Piha trip through AWOL. The owner joined along with the guide as our group was in a hurry to catch the worlcup match after the trip. Both the guide & owner were really sweet people. Good to talk to and very helpful. I can tell there is nothing unsafe about this.... More

Its amazing that in only 40 mins outside Auckland that you can be in the deepest jungle trekking through the paths, jumping into pools and abseiling down waterfalls. Great high impact fun, run flawlessly by Cam and his crew. Highly recommend

I did the full day Piha trip, I've done canyoning before in Switzerland and this was pretty different. First the hike to the top is not by any means a leisurely stroll. It's about 20 of steep uphill walking. It's totally doable and worth the effort though. The Piha trip is more about repelling than jumps and slides (blue mountain... More
