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!

Another Safety Audit passed

By | Articles by us, News

Canyoning in New Zealand is obviously an adventure sport and therefore needs to be managed well. Aside from having a robust Safety Management System and always being on the lookout for hazards and improvements to the way we operate, we also get audited. An external audit organisation called AdventureMark checks in every year to see if all systems are still in order. Every third year they come out on a trip to see if we are still operating within our own safety procedure and national guidelines. It always makes for great discussions around what works well and what improvements we can make. Our Operation Manager Oscar (right) managed the whole process and got us passing with flying colours. Awesome to get the big TICK once again!

Abel Tasman Canyons crew, always upskilling

By | Articles by us, News

Oscar and Toine joined the New Zealand River Association River Rescue workshop in Murchison. Three days of getting tossed around by the mighty Buller river. Rescuing people in all sorts of scenarios. And updating our first aid skills in the river setting. Great to be part of the river community, learn about bigger volume than we are used to in the canyons. And also giving back by sharing our canyoning knowledge.

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.
