Including Lunch at Blue Moon Retreat
Our guides are trained and certified by the West Coast Canyoneering Method
Tour runs: Wed | Fri (occasionally other days available - please check calendar or contact us if for alternate dates)
Tour Description: Canyoning differs to cascading in that it involves rappelling and is therefore slightly more technical and a little slower paced. 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. 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. After a couple of hours in the river and a 20 minute hike out to the transport you'll be served a refreshing fruit plate to tide you over during the ride back to Blue Moon to change clothes and enjoy a fantastic Dominican lunch! After lunch we return you to where we picked you up.
Included: Dominican lunch and all gear. You need to bring tennis or river shoes, something to wear under wetsuit, a towel and dry clothes.
