  • A awesome adventure! The guide was patient and kind. This is a good place for a good canyoning. But if you don't like heights be careful!
  • My partner and I decided last minute to do this. It was amazing from start to finish. Our guide Bryce was fantastic. A member of our group was very scared but he helped her through the day. She was so happy that she done it at the end. We done theor introductory trek, which had high abseiling and a choice of different height jumps. I would recommend this company! It is good value for your money. You get an entire day trip.
  • A great selection of adventures for all ability levels. Experienced guides and well maintained routes and equipment. Water can be very cold so a thermal top is a good idea, especially in winter.
  • It was exciting and beautiful, is one of the best experiences I had, the guides Jeremy and Owen are the best, really cool, funny and make you feel confident. Thank you guys I had an awesome experience
  • Most amazing experience! First time canyoning and definitely recommend the trained expert guides from Deep Canyon. A must-do!
