It is both a privilege and an honour to guide you through the Torrent River Canyon. Surrounded by the most lush green beautiful environment we do it for the smiles, the look of awe and the stepping out of comfort zones.
Getting right in amongst it! Abseiling down a waterfall in Waterfall Creek! What a feeling!

What happens when you take 2 professional AFL players down Torrent River....? @patrickdangerfield
had a crack at something different and had an absolute blast jumping, sliding, abseiling and ziplining down the canyon. (Worth mentioning that they couldn't have done it without @mardidangerfield
!!!) Well done team, awesome day out!
Meet the team:
Jake (USA) is here for his first season. He loves ice cream but hates guinea pigs. He’s mad keen on canyoning and has been leading the charge with his canyoning posse in the Northwest of the states, exploring new canyons all over the place. Recently Jake became an ICOpro Instructor Level 1 and is more than ready to rip into his first guiding job. First time in NZ too, so he’ll have to be taught the kiwi lingo. Jake’s other passion is photography and filming.
Meet the team:
Camille (Kiwi) was our office superstar last year, taking care of all the calls, bookings, social media and behind the scene stuff for the guides. She is back for another season. Keen as on the outdoors, climbing and getting out into the mountains, she's now also caught the canyoning bug and is keen to join the guiding team. She'll be both in the canyon and in the office this year. In the meantime she’s studying a Bachelor of Counselling. If you want some advice on how to get most out of life, talk to Camille!

Meet the team: Juri joined us at the end of last season as a guide and did the ICOpro CA123 course in April. This summer he is back on board as a full time guide. Juri switched over from the dark side (caving) after years of guiding in Waitomo. Canyoneer, surfer, caver, civil engineer, snowboard instructor, ice hockey player, and tiler could his skills be any more diverse??
Meet the team:
Oscar is a local lad from up the valley. Keen on anything that goes on in the outdoors, especially kayaking and canyoning. Back for year two at Abel Tasman Canyons. Before becoming a canyoning guide Oscar spent a few years sea kayaking up and down the Abel Tasman coastline blowing visitors’ minds. This winter he has been putting the local youngsters through their paces and inspiring them as outdoor instructor at Motueka High School. This man knows a thing or two about showing people a good time in the canyon and he has done an amazing job training the new guides!
Apparently holding a leaf in your teeth stops the water from going up your nose. 🤔🤨😂
