Overall a fascinating experience - running off a cliff proves to be non-suicidal and fun. A bit upset with the price though - $50 for photos and videos, but purchase of individual photos or videos is not allowed.

We were quite apprehensive about doing this, but the team at GForce were very professional and skilled which put us all at ease. Such a peaceful yet awesome experience. Highly recommend it and would love to do it again.

Hi. Skippers Canyon half day tour. Absolutely amazing. Can include a jet boat element but suggest you do Buller Gorge one instead if you're in that area, as it's the best one by far.
