Frequently Asked Questions
Is it safe? That’s the big question isn’t it? Over the last 5 years we have taken over 10,000 people on our adventures. We have taken out every age from 7-80 and all ability types from jungle warrior to incredible doofus and no one has needed medical attention that could not be fixed with a bandaid and a little ice. Our tours are designed for the first timer! Our backup and safety systems are designed to allow you to do all the activities on your own, while allowing us to keep you safe in case you do everything wrong.
What should I wear? Your swimsuit under your clothes, ideally quick drying clothes and shoes that will stay on and will get wet. No flip flops!!! Slip on water shoes are great as they tend to grip really well in the water. Tennis shoes and strap on sandals also are a good choice
What should I bring? Camera, water, bug spray and sunblock. A towel, change of clothes if you like.
Is it safe or appropriate for kids? As there are varying difficulty levels to all tours please advise us if you are traveling with children under age 10. Sometimes children require extra effort and attention from the guides and we want to ensure that we are staffed properly.
What about old people or people with physical limitations? Our Canyoning tour has been enjoyed by people up to age 80, people who limp, people with a prosthetic leg and people over 300 pounds!! With that said it is required that you have at least moderate balance and the energy to hike and stay on your feet. (We won’t carry you, Sorry!)
Will I get wet? Yes. One of the things that make Canyoning so exciting is that you are rappelling down the middle of a waterfall!
What is the difference between rappelling and Canyoning?
Waterfall rappelling is usually when you will hike to the top of a waterfall, rappel down and then do it again or several times.
True Canyoning is when you make your way through the canyon without hiking the same area twice. You will make your way through the canyon by hiking, down climbing, rappelling, river crossing and even zip-lines! this is fun for the whole family. We have had participants from 7-75 safely enjoy this adventure!!
