          Best day ever - thanks Pete
          Pete took us to Crystal cascades and Behana gorge. Everyone enjoyed thoroughly especially how Pete encouraged us and helped us to jump off the rocks. He was so much fun—best guide! What an amazing day in Cairns.

          Fun time in Cairns area
          Pete and Marcio did a great job leading our group on a fun adventure canyoning. A nice adrenaline jolt but always felt safe. Great energy from both guides!

          Fun rainforest waterfall experience
          This is an amazing experience and totally unexpected fun adventure. We loved the team and the energy. We jumped into pools and drifted within the different rapids. Highly recommended

          A brilliant experience with amazing guides in beautiful location.
          Absolutely awesome activity. Guides were brilliant, amazing, so much fun, but it is quite physical and you need to be prepared to really challenge yourself, physically and mentally….once you start there is no turning back. If you want something to expand your comfort zone this is it. Beautiful scenery and location. Do it!

          Key highlight of my trip
          I'd never heard of canyoning before planning my trip to Cairns. So glad I found Cairns Canyoning. So much fun making our way through the rainforest, waterfalls, and gorge by abseiling, cliff jumping, sliding, swimming, hiking, and rock climbing. One of the highlights of my whole trip to Australia.

          Awesome adventure trip! Get ready for some nice jumps and walking down waterfalls. Guides were amazing as well and made it so much fun and safe. Loved the surroundings and nice fresh water with the heat.

          Amazing day with amazing people. I would 100% go again, the guides were all super friendly and I never felt pressured into doing any of the activities. Absolutely an exhilarating afternoon in the canyons

          Adrenaline, fun and Wonder!
          We had a fabulous afternoon with Spencer. We were privileged to just have a group of four and he catered so well to the group's abilities and expectations with the perfect balance of fun and safety. It was such a special experience to be in this beautiful national park floating through pristine waters. Definitely a highlight from all the fabulous activities we did in the Cairns region.

          Do it!
          A must! My wife and I did the 1/2 day canyoning trip. Was just the right amount of adventure, adrenaline and magnificent views. Marcio was amazing, knowledgeable and super fun! We felt very safe knowing he was leading us through. We had a very small group getting to know the other couple that joined us that day and had a great time. Very highly recommend.

        Me and my mate decided to book in last min. Was awesome day we really enjoyed the spectacular view and great outdoor adventurous activity. Highly recommend to do on rainy day, make the work more challenging.

        However must complaint to our tour guide Dom, way too talkative and judgy, hence I couldn’t rate this 5 stars. It really brothers and offensive the way he spoke to me “ Asian this Asian that capability etc”. I was rile up. Never judge a book by its cover , mate 😒😒

        Would love to do again next year with my partner. Surely will request not with the same guide anymore.

        Supreme day of fun on the Cascades! Really cool thing to do in the tropics, especially refreshing on a summer day. Super crew - thank you for getting us through the gorge, over waterfalls, down the rock faces, in on under over and around. What a ride.
        Beautiful location, add the Canyoning and you have the best day in Cairns.

        Went with a few friends from university and had an amazing time. The guides are friendly and funny, and will really accommodate whatever you want to do. It was the first time canyoning for all of us, and they made us feel comfortable going for either the really big cliff jumps (around 10 m) or none at all. Definitely glad we came!

        Canyoning with Dom and Matt was exactly what we had expected. They're awesome, nice, fun, responsible guides who made sure we had the best, safest time possible. And we did. EVERYONE needs to do this activity. You'll remember it for the rest of your life.

        This is an absolute must-do for ANYONE visiting Cairns. Awesome, silly human tricks in an absolutely spectacular natural environment. The excursion itself with its various activities was more than worth it but our guides, Matt and Dom were absolutely BRILLIANT hosts and their obvious passion and enormously fun attitudes only rocketed the experience through the stratosphere!
        Don’t miss this. Seriously, people.

        Canyoning in Crystal Cascades was epic! Everything I hoped it would be and more thanks to the awesome guides. They supply all the gear you need and make sure you're safe and have an awesome time. Rappelling down waterfalls, jumping off cliffs, sliding down and playing in waterfalls... get ready for some exhilarating fun that you won't forget anytime soon! An absolutely beautiful place.

        Our river boarding trip was cancelled due to high river levels so we were offered a free upgrade to the canyoning tour of which I was hesitant to do due to looking too strenuous. The operator assured us that they would look after us. Our 4 older kids 14 to 19 were excited. Our guides Luke and Marcio were amazing, kind ,funny and so caring. On our steep walk up they were patient and took their time. We were definitely challenged out of our comfort zone through abseiling, rock climbing, swimming, high water jumps and rock sliding. This made the experience so much more rewarding. We never felt pressured and they made our tour fun and safe. Great job Luke and Marcio .. one, if not the best holiday experience we have ever had !!! Highly recommended even for the less abled.

        Wasn’t sure if the Crystal Canyon tour was going to be too full on or not, but Baz took us under his wing and made the day super fun, and tested our mental prowess with abseiling, rock sliding, cliff jumping and zip lining. So glad we chose this tour as it pushed us out of our comfort zone and gave us a real taste for canyoning. Cannot rate Baz and his team highly enough
