“Canyoning is what we do!”.
Awatea is a student at Motueka High and joined our team in March to complete his work experience. We asked him some questions as to why he decided to chose Abel Tasman Canyons.
Can you tell us a bit about the Gateway programme?
In Gateway you choose a job which seems up your alley and you go out and have a go in that workplace.
Have you always been excited about the outdoors?
I got into the outdoors when i was 12 when my mates asked me to go tramping up Mt Arthur and I’ve loved being out there doing it since.
What inspired you to come and join us at Abel Tasman Canyons?
I was camping out at Anchorage with some mates and my friend Tess who was doing some work experience at Canyons told us all about it and I thought that sounded right up my alley.
What did you think of your first experience of the Torrent River Canyon?
I thought it was such a cool experience going to one of those places that so few eyes get to see and the guides that took me up Pete and Oscar are the bomb. Also learning to back flip was definitely a plus.
