My family and I had a great morning on this activity. We were picked up promptly from our accommodation and taken up to a lovely gorge that looked amazing and even though we were all a little nervous we were put completely at ease and provide high level of equipment to wear to get ready to start our experience. After a very patient safety briefing we were ready to go. Abseiling down water falls and jumping into rock pools. Although this activity is not high adrenaline it certainly raised the heart rate and definitely took you out of your comfort zone. Marco took photo of us all through the whole event and sent them over to as couple of days later which is an amazing little touch that I'm sure other companies would not offer.
