“AWOL,Exhilarating,get out of your comfort zone!”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

My favourite experience ever,celebrating the day of New Years Eve Blue Canyoning.Attitude is more important than age or physical ability.As a female in my late fifties I had faith and full confidence in the awesome instructors Cam and Conor.The scenery was beautiful,and even being the lone Aucklander amongst the younger tourists I appreciated what NZ has to offer.
It's fun,scary,entertaining and exhilarating.I'll be back with a group.

“Less intense than I would like, but fun dedicated staff.”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

It's not as extreme as you would think reading it so if your scared, don't be. For the longest drop your completely harnessed in and they really take safety as a first priority. It's still so fun and a definite adventure. They even feed you lunch near a lake with eels you can pet! At first you go to this shack in the woods with farm animals, but they do have generally nice equipment and provide you 'junk' shoes in limited sizes so you don't have to ruin yours! I think this shack isn't that bad as long as you are expecting it and know ahead of time that they are legit and very trustworthy. Have fun well worth the money an experience to remember. Do the full day so you get every experience!

“Exciting! No regrets.”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

Highly recommended for family, couples, friends or even solo! Did the full day Piha canyoning and it was definitely an adventure not to be missed. From abseiling to jumping into ice-cold water and sliding backwards down waterfalls, it really brings out the adrenaline junkie in you! Gear, transport and lunch were all provided for. The guide was really professional in making sure we practiced the basic skills first before the actual trip. Lastly, the scenery during the canyoning is beyond words!
