Including Lunch at Blue Moon Retreat
Our guides are trained and certified by the West Coast Canyoneering Method!
Tour runs: Fri (occasionally other days available - please check calendar or contact us if you are a group of 6 or more)
Tour Description: Affectionately known as the "Super Big Bastard" this trip is advanced, challenging and definitely falls into the "extreme sport" category.
Our first stop is our base camp located at the spectacular Blue Moon Retreat to enjoy a coffee and biscuit while gearing up in a wetsuit, harness, helmet and life preserver. We re-board the van for a quick safety briefing during the drive to the canyon entrance.
A full day adventure that is in effect a combination of 3 tours (Magic Mushroom, Big Bastard & Ciguapa Falls) and takes you deep into the pristine river valley, to places few have seen and even fewer have canyoneered. Rappels of up to 100 feet (30m, depending on water levels) and at least a dozen exhilarating jumps including one of around 50 feet (14m) await you. After aprox. 4 hours river time it's a 20 minute steep hike before we meet the donkeys (included) for the ride back to the transport where you'll be served a refreshing fruit plate to tide you over during the ride back to base camp at Blue Moon for a well deserved, delicious Dominican lunch.
Don't plan anything for the following day! You will surely find muscles you never knew you had.
Included: Dominican lunch and all gear. You need to bring tennis or river shoes, something to wear under wetsuit, a towel and dry clothes.
