I guide canyons in Southern California and in Utah for friends and family and this has got to be one of the most fun experiences in a Canyon that I've had. Great guides with Drew and Pete, knowledgeable and professional and a lot of fun. Don't pass this trip by! You will be talking about it for years!

This was such a fantastic day, might be my favorite thing we did on a two-week trip through north and south islands. Very different from anything I'd every done before, so much fun ziplining and repelling and jumping off cliffs, making the canyons our own playground! Our guides Drew and Lee were fantastic. I can't recommend it enough, truly! Thank... More

I'm a teacher and we brought a large school group (19 students and two teachers) for a day trip here and Abel Tasman Canyons were AMAZING. Friendly, professional, safe, courteous, encouraging to our students and just plain FUN. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! We will be back!

We did the Torrent River Canyon tour on Valentine's Day 2017, the guides were Mitch and Drew. As first time canyoners, this was just right for us: good overview of what canyoning can be with lots of different abseils, slides, jumps, cannonballs, zip lines,... There were "soft options" for those who were hesitant about the big jumps and - had... More

Wow! What a crazy adventure! The canyon was absolutely stunning. And on the way up you get some great views. Drew and Mitch were awesome guides. They were so knowledgeable, and really put us at ease. I would say this is a must do while in the Abel Tasman area.
