This was a surprise for my husbands birthday. He didnt know until we got to the meeting point what we were doing. We had the most amazing day out :-) Our guide Lee was awesome had us jumping off cliffs ,sliding down rocks and abseiling. His knowledge of the area was outstanding,we had a Japanese tourist with us with very little English. Lee had spent some time in Japan and was able to explain everything to him. This made for an amazing very unforgetable day with our wishing the day wouldn't finish even though our energy eas gone. Would do again and would encourage others to do :-) Have a look on their web site or Facebook page.

In one short word, EXCELLENT!

I've partaken in similar trips before, but Waterfall Creek went a step above and beyond any other av bin on, the pristine nature, the knowledge of the guides and the ability the had of holding a pace all in the group cud handle. The where also clear in there information, and made you fell safe and secure in the activates of the day. You very only looking forward to whatever next challenge coming you're way. Thanks a million for an awesome day, and menny fun memory for life!

Just the two of us on a last minute booking and the +1 was a little nervous!
The guide (Toine) was great and doubled as a nature and history guide.
We both really enjoyed. Well paced, individualised, super fun and always felt totally safe whilst at the same time exploring some places that felt a bit wild and unexplored.
Definatley recommend.

If you are visiting New Zealand and are looking for something fun, unique and adventurous to do, canyoning in Abel Tasman is a MUST! What could be better than hiking to the top of a beautiful and remote canyon, then sliding and abseiling down stunning waterfalls and jumping into crystal clear pools of water until you reach the bottom again! Anyone can do this, whether you are an adrenaline junky or someone who just wants to try something new in a special part of NZ. The guides, Toine and Lee, are fantastic and will make you feel safe at all times. I guarantee you will feel like you've achieved something at the end of the day! It was my first visit to NZ, and three of us went to Waterfall Creek. I can honestly say, it was the highlight of our holiday. I can't recommend it enough and will definitely be back to tackle a few more of the canyons! Thanks Toine and Lee!
