“Awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

We did the mushroom tour and it was GREAT! Matt and his crew were so nice and a lot of fun. The jumps from the waterfalls can be a little scary, but you can either walk down or rappel down. Climbing out of the canyon is also a little tough, but the guides were all super knowledgeable and safe. Definitely worth it. Would recommend to anyone going to Cabarete.

“Do yourself a favor...get out of the resort and head into the mountains with Helmut!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

Just back from the North Coast of the Dominican Republic (March 2013) and had my 6th adventure with Kayak River Adventures. I visit the DR a number of times a year for relaxation and to get away. A few trips with my wife and children and at least one trip with my buddies. I have taken my wife and kids (teenagers) on both the Kayaking trip down the river as well as the Canyoning excursions and they love it! This last trip was a buddies trip and of course we had to give Helmut a call so that he could guide us back into the mountains for some Canyoning. He has a number of different excursions to pick from and he is always exploring new areas as well. Its really really hard to explain what the Canyoning is like...you just have to experience it. Safety is always first with the latest equipment and the smartest guides. Fun, excitement, water, hiking, laughing, joking, jumping, amazing scenery and of course...excellent food will await you. So, give Helmut and his team a call, he will pick you up and you will see the great mountainside, meet some wonderful local people, and have a great experience!

“Beat the heat with a cool trip to the canyon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

I just did a second trip to the canyon with Helmut and Alberto and the second time in that amazing place is just as good as the first. The scenery is not only spectacular but by being IN the river you get a very different and special perspective. When you drive around the DR you spend a lot of time gazing at steep mountains and valleys covered by lush jungle. This trip provides you with a great and unique way of getting on the inside of that jungle so that you can see, touch, hear and feel what it is really like.

If you like hiking and have even a hint of adrenaline junkie in you then this is one you don't want to miss.

I used to do quite a lot of rock climbing and know what can happen with any lapse in equipment or safety protocol so I was watching the equipment and the set up very carefully and was very happy to see that Helmut and his team have great gear and they know exactly what to do to keep you safe even if you are scared out of your wits. He also will tailor the level of excitement to your individual needs. For example; you can do a nice and safe repel down the waterfall or huck yourself off some seriously high jumps.

As if all that wasn't enough you get to finish the trip with a delicious and authentic Dominican meal.
