I absolutely loved the Piha Canyon Full Day trip I did with AWOL. The abseiling (rappelling) was really fun and pretty easy and the canyon was beautiful. It felt like a real adventure but I also felt safe the whole time. I have a silly phobia about jumping into water which is typically part of canyoning but Cam found a... More

The canyoning trip in Piha Canyon with Cam as our guide was a perfect adventure! I was traveling with two 18 year olds who described the canyoning trip as the "coolest thing" they had ever done. From the start, Cam's knowledge, skill, and professionalism made the trip a fantastic experience, both a physically challenging and absolutely fun adventure. The Piha... More

I'll be honest... I didn't know what canyoning involved. I was in for a pleasant surprise! The guides were so down to earth and friendly, and very precise with their instructions. They put safety first and didn't compromise the fun at all. They pay good attention and make sure everyone learns and practices the techniques needed. The walk to the... More

First Canyoning adventure and it was fantastic! We had Elise as our guide who is actually wonder woman - very jealous of her job and office. She was a magnificent instructor and hilarious all day! The waterfall abseils are amazing, gorgeous views and "refreshing" water! Tip for GoPro users, bring your clip attachment or head mounts, there are some mounts... More

We did the Piha canyon full day with AWOL I didn't really know what we were in for going there, but what a day out. So much fun and so much adrenaline. A must do if you're in Auckland so worth the money.

My husband and I booked the canyoning trip through our cruise and it was amazing but a little bit scary. You are rappelling down a waterfall, swimming, hiking, caving and jumping into pools of water. If you are not physically fit I would not recommend this adventure since it is strenuous. We weren't quite sure what we were in for... More

I did the Full-day canyoning at Piha. Can't recommend it enough. You get to see the beautiful bush and waterfalls from an angle you wouldn't otherwise be able to. If you are tossing up between the full and half day - definitely do the full day! Our guide showed us where the half day started and you would miss out... More

I had no idea what I was in for but when I found out I was going to rappell down waterfalls I wanted to run far away as I have a fear of heights - But I am so glad I did it. It was so much fun and I immediately wanted to do it again! Elise our guide was... More

My teenage daughter and I went canyoning with AWOL while we were in Auckland and had an incredible time. Our guide was fantastic! She was outgoing and personable and she did a fantastic job of creating a fun, safe and supportive atmosphere. We repelled down cliffs and waterfalls (My daughter said she felt like rockstar as she repelled down the... More
