I did Crystal Cascades canyoning last week and enjoyed it so much that I came back for River boarding that same week. These activities were the highlight of my trip in Cairns thanks to the tour guides Dom, Keanu and Kai who were super fun yet always made our safety 100% priority. Would highly recommend these activities to anyone with a free morning, afternoon or whole day.

Canyoning:
involved jumping, sliding, abseiling and climbing around waterfalls, jumping off rocks into the water, ziplining, and swimming. It was a little bit of hard work but very doable and with great scenery. Our guide also recommended the Behana Canyon which he said is a little bit easier and very beautiful so I'll be coming back for that one. Would recommend to bring your own shoes that you don't mind getting wet, though they have a bucket of random shoes you can borrow if you need (if your size if there).

River boarding:
included swimming with fins, floating arm board, and safety gear through grade 1-3 river rapids. For this tour we had 3 guides for 6 people to make sure we were all safe. This tour was also super fun. All you need for this one are some swimmers and you can wear socks under your fins if you like to prevent developing any pressure sores as you are swimming for a while.

Really easy to book the tours as you can do it online, call or drop into the allbout cairns store and staff are very friendly.

Thanks Cairns Canyoning!

Our party of 8 being a mixture of teens and adults were taken on the most amazing adventure with Marcio and Dom. The guys were skilled and confident and expertly guided us through, over, & down the canyon - they clearly love their job and sharing the thrill of adventure with others. They never tired of encouraging us through the obstacles and had endless patience with the kids (and Mum!!).
We did the Spillway Canyon and would recommend this for active people with reasonable fitness.

If you want to experience Australia in all its majesty and get your adrenaline pumping book with these guys!

Get out your wallets and have a crack at an awesome adventure. We had never tried canyoning before let alone heard of it. Cairns Canyoning delivered the best day. Both Marcio and Dom were awesome guides who were very knowledgeable, easy going and had a high attention to detail. Because of their attention to detail regarding safety my wife and I had complete trust in our guides which led us to have an enjoyable time.
The abseiling was the bomb, the cliff jumping was the bomb and the water time and terrain trekking was awesome. We did spillway and it was amazing. I highly recommend giving Cairns Canyoning a crack, you won’t regret it. Abseiling next to a fully pumping waterfall was like being in a Hollywood movie.

This was an amazing experience. My husband and I went on Christmas Day for an adventure we will never forget. There were only 3 of us that day, and the guides, and they made sure we had a great time. We rappelled, jumped off waterfalls, swam into waterfalls and got spit back out, zip lined, etc. They allowed us to climb back up and jump again if we wanted. We hung out in the water along the canyon and they shared facts about the area. It was like spending a day with your best mates! 100% action packed! We spent 3 weeks in Australia and New Zealand and this was probably my favorite activity. This is a must do!

Keanu and Dom were fantastic guides! I booked the Crystal Cascades tour for my partner to enjoy with two stepchildren ages 15 and 12, when he wasn't feeling well I grabbed the spot. My two teens were cool as cucumbers and handled all of the activities like pros, I had two big acts to follow and did so with the encouragement, positivity and big support from both Keanu and Dom. We had the best time undertaking the canyoning activities together as part of a small group, great bonding day out, lots of laughs and smiles all round with great photos to keep as forever memories! Keanu and Dom being true locals had heaps of local knowledge and stories to share from having grown up in the area. Thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend! Thanks Keanu and Dom!

Spillway was definitely the best outdoor activity I have ever undertaken.

Marcio, the instructor and guide, is a great entertainer and an highly professional man; I trusted him beyond doubt about my security. When we were walking on the riverbanks to reach a new spot, he always gave us information about flora and fauna including aboriginal names and facts.

I will without any hesitation invite again my friends to do it again.

We went river boarding for my husbands 50th birthday and we loved it! These guys are very skilled at making the experience safe and fun at the same time. We haven't been river boarding before and we were so glad we went, our guides Dom and Marcio took time at the beginning to make sure we were all comfortable and then we spent 2 hours on the river, the scenery is amazing and the rapids were good fun. Definitely recommend anything these guys do. Great value for money as well.

Canyoning at Crystal Cascades was amazing! Marcio and Keanu made this the most amazing experience possible for my blind husband and I and we are so grateful. Marcio drew on years of experience to walk and talk Shayne through every step, allowing him to fully participate in this thrilling adventure. Keanu made it fun and safe for me too as a first timer. We want to express our gratitude and respect for these two amazing and kind hearted men. Thank you!

It's been ages since I've written a travel review! Cairns after covid , 2 huge highlights and Cairns Canyoning was one of them.

Went in October, maybe shoulder season but there were only 6 of us and 2 guides so that was awesome.

Family of 3 - including a 12 year old. All first timers to canyoning, abseiling.

Likes :

EVERYTHING. Weather was superb but that's not credit of the guys. lol.

We chose the Behana course because it was stated to be most family suitable and beginner friendly. Spot on!! But mind you it's not easy even if there were options.

The first jump into the waterfalls. those who were unsure could go down maybe another 1 metre to try so options were given.

Guides Peter and Marcio gave amazing instructions. They said 2X not to bring GO Pros as hundreds lay in the first jump

2 guests did - one had it round his helmet with those elastic bands and the other had his screwed one......

The very 1st jump. elastic bands fell off. Poor guy but Guides gave great advice to move one and enjoy the rest of the trip and he did.

DONT bring your cameras.... it will not survive.. They offer $30 for all the photos of you and group and frankly it was worth every penny. They gave us a small discount for the whole family and I didn't have to do a thing

the views are spectacular the water soooo freaking clean .

Pete and Marcio know what they are doing and talking about. Experienced folks who knew how to keep the pace moving and also energy level up..

IT was SOO good that my husband and son signed up the next day for the Crystal (I think ) . we were flying out that night so I passed but they said it was as good but different experiences - they abseiled into a waterfall!!!

So I would say. Go for it!!

Frankly I enjoyed it more than the reefs.. I will also post my reef experience next.

We love challenging our 9yo but I admit to thinking we may have gotten a bit ahead of ourselves when our little man had a freak out at the first obstacle of the day... thankfully we had the most amazing guides who helped us all get through the day with nothing but smiles and laughs! Seeing little man's confidence grow throughout the day was incredible and Marcio and Bazz would put saints to shame with the patience they showed him.

Huge shout out to Marcio in particular, who in all our years of doing adventure activities has been the most genuine, stand out guide we have had the pleasure of meeting. Honestly, words can not praise him enough but we are so so thankful for the time and effort he took with all of us, but especially little man into making his first taste of canyoning unforgettable. What could've easily been a disaster of a day turned into such a positive, fun experience for the whole family.

Canyoning has definitely made it onto our list of annual activities to do in Cairns. We already can't wait for next year's trip!
