We took our pal Bare Kiwi into the Torrent River so he could film this amazing 360 degrees video! What a legend!
We have been open for over a week already and have had a great start to the season!
Spring is an amazing time of year to come canyoning with us. Enjoy a day out in the Abel Tasman National Park, before the hustle and bustle of summer. The water flows are juicy and the weather is amazing, making it the perfect conditions for canyoning!
We are on the hunt for an all round superstar to manage the place. Job starts in October/November 2019, it is a full-on position during the summer season, and there is a potential for ongoing part-time employment during the off season.
How to get this job? Look through our website and familiarise yourself with what we do, our values, our culture etc, then have a look at the job description below, and then ask yourself a few questions: Does this look like a business I want to manage? Would I like to work in one of the coolest industries? Would I want to live in the extraordinary Nelson-Tasman region? Have I got what it takes? Am I willing to work hard over summer and keep things ticking along over winter? Am I willing to pour my heart and soul into it? And then, send us your amazing application with a Cover Letter and CV, and then cross your fingers and toes. It’s as simple as that.
Applications close on Friday the 13th of September 2019.

This is our first newsletter of the 2018/2019 season and boy have we had an amazingly busy summer already! A trip into the canyon is proving to be the best way to cool off as this beautiful hot weather continues. The time has flown by and it’s crazy to think we are over half way through this season! We continue to take some fantastic local and international visitors canyoning.

The first thing you always notice when you wake up in New Zealand is the harmonious orchestra of bird song. The constant chatter of many beautiful species fills the air. Perfect, you think, as you look out of the window of the floating backpackers to look at the brilliantly, beautiful , blue bay, surrounded by bright and green native forest with the sun beating down onto the pristine golden beaches. That was the morning we woke to half way through our adventure…
It all started early on a Saturday morning, slamming back a coffee and hastily gobbling up some high energy breakfast. We jumped in the car and sped off (within the speed limit!) around the Tasman bay. Travelling from Nelson City to Marahau taking only an hour on the small highway and then up and over a little hill and being greeted by a beautiful site- Sandy Bay.
