Our guides are trained and certified by the West Coast Canyoneering Method
Tour runs: Weds | Fri
Tour Description: Canyoning differs to cascading in that it involves rappelling and is therefore slightly more technical and a little slower paced We start the day meeting our guide at Iguana Mama at 7.45am for the 45 minute drive to our base camp. Here is where we meet the other guides and get you geared up in wetsuit, harness, helmet and life preserver. A quick safety briefing is followed by 10 more minutes van time before arriving at the canyon entrance. The trip starts with a couple of easy jumps before we come upon the highlight of the day, the Magic Mushroom itself. Two intense rappels are followed by some great jumps that can be walked around if you are just in it for the rappels. For adrenaline junkies the second rappel can be jumped and at 15m/45ft is enough for most people! After a couple of hours in the river and a 20 minute hike out to the transport we're ready to head for lunch and the drive back to Cabarete, arriving at around 2:00pm.
