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 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.
