Reopening again 1 October 2020

By | News

Following from our Prime Minister’s announcement over the weekend we have made the tough decision to close our business for the season, effective immediately, as of Monday 23rd of March 2020.

We feel like it is the responsible thing to do, to keep our staff and clients safe and overall, flatten the curve of infection. Our heart goes out to anyone who has been impacted by the corona virus and want to wish everyone the very best for whatever the future now holds. We also want to acknowledge the disappointment some may feel, who were still planning to come canyoning with us this season. As a gesture of gratitude we offer a 10% rebooking discount for anyone who has been cancelled due to the Coronavirus from the 23rd of March onwards. Please contact us if you have not heard from us yet.

Happy Valentine’s Newsletter

By | Articles by us, Media, News, Videos

Happy Valentine’s Canyoners,

We are now mid-summer and we figured it was about time for another newsletter to let everyone know what we have been up to.

We have been super fortunate with the stable weather, which has made it possible for us to run trips every single day for the last 2 months and despite there not having been any rain, Torrent River has maintained its nice and juicy flow. That said, the region is in desperate need for some significant rain. So here is hoping there will be some rain soon.

With Valentine’s day coming up we thought this would be a nice moment to thank you for all the Aroha we have received over the last few months, without you (keen participants, local operators, agents, friends and family) we could not do what we do.

With another 3 months of the season to go we look forward to seeing you in the canyon some time soon!

Abel Tasman Canyons, along with other local operators, combined with Motueka i-SITE to create a float in the 2019 Motueka Starlight Christmas Parade. The chosen theme was Little Red Riding Hood – Kiwi style! We took out the Business Category – wahoo! We are super proud to be a part of such a fantastic community here in Motueka.

Merry Christmas 2019 Newsletter

By | Articles by us, News, Videos

Merry Christmas Everyone! This is our first newsletter of the 2019/2020 season and boy have we got lots of news to share with you.

We are stoked and extremely grateful to have had many staff members return for another season. On top of this we have been lucky to bring in Chris, who owns his own canyoning business in the Northern Hemisphere. Having such a well-experienced/senior team has allowed us to take on two super keen assistant instructors who we have sourced from the local area. Zeb grew up in the Golden Bay and has just finished his Diploma in Outdoor Instruction and Guiding at Tai Poutini Polytechnic. Danelle grew up in Nelson and has started her canyoning career in Australia, only to come home and realise how good the canyons are in her own backyard. Take a look at this video to meet the whole crew.
