  • We had so much fun with our group and guide Joel on the Black Abyss Experience. It is definitely something 'different' than your average tourist attraction. If you are a cliché Kiwi who enjoys...  more »
  • I'm not a hard core adventure person so was rather nervous about this, but it was absolutely amazing and exhilarating and not at all hard. Our guide Cory was awesome and super knowledgeable.  more »

  • We had a really good time doing the black abyss. Lovely guides. George had just the right amount of sarcasm, and Nikki was lovely (great pairing). We saw so many glow worms in the caves, jumped a waterfall climbed 2 and had snacks along the way (included in the package). Lovely cup of soup at the end as well. We also did the cave tour as well, but I would recommend doing one or the other as you see all the glow worms when doing the activities.
  • One of the best days I've had in a good while, can't recommend it enough. The two guides were extremely professional and went out of their way to make it both fun and action packed without compromising on safety. Great information on the caves and it's wildlife and showed great knowledge and respect for the ancient Maori site and it's significance.
  • Amazing experience and really fun memory. Definitely worth doing this glowworm cave tour if you are looking for something that gets you right into the action caving. We did the Black Labyrinth, you are put into a wet suit (the water is COLD!), A helmet with a light and a tube to float in. You carry the tube for most of the ride, but get some great chances to float, relax and enjoy the view of the glowworms. Enjoy!
  • When people ask me - what was your most memorable experience in New Zealand, the first thing that comes to my mind is Black Water Rafting! The whole tour from the beginning to its end was very well thought through, ensuring that we get to experience something new and amazing from the beginning till the end. Abseiling down into the dark void and then discovering the cultural importance of this magical place covered in constellations of blueish lights reflected in water and exploring the true nature of those lights through fascinating stories told by the guides. p.s. if you are worried about getting too cold - worry not :) the wetsuits will keep you at comfortable temperature and the cakes and hot chocolate during the tour as well as lovely warm shower and hot lunch after will definitely enhance your experience!
  • Jess was the perfect guide. Rappelling into the cave, zip line in the dark, floating the cave with constellation of glow worm lights above, and climbing out up the waterfall exit! Great memories! Felt comfortable and completely safe. Thank you.
